Teaching El capibara con botas Chapters 10-14

We finished El capibara con botas by Mira Canion over a month ago, but I am just getting around to blogging about the end of the book. To be honest I have been avoiding it because we did not really do anything "blog worthy" and as I get father from finishing it, I forget what we even did :/

We completed it as the first ever novel in Spanish 1. I went too slow to start, so by the end it was dragging. I decided to power through the end very fast as to try and end it on a positive note. This means this post will be quite short.

Lista lunes - Winter Holidays

Winter holidays are upon us! Tis the season to...relax and let someone else do the planning for you! Here are some holiday related ideas chronologically from now until 3 Reyes. I have a 2 day week, and each class is doing cultural pre novel activities. All novels will start a novel when we get back and power through during our four solid weeks, including the Friday before Christmas. We will be sprinkling some holiday activities during, as well as hopefully having a couple days at the end of the semester, as well as continuing once we are back in January.

Quick tip: Positive Plates

Since so many people have been asking on social media after a picture I posted, so I figured I would give a little more detail about an activity we did this week that I am calling "Positive Plates." I have a particularly negative class that I am trying my hardest to move in a positive direction. I had a light bulb as to a camp activity we could incorporate. I had done this activity as a team building activity in English with Camp Adventure, and while in bed in Monday night, it came to me to do it in Spanish the next day.

Fishbowl Interpersonal Speaking in World Langauge class

Since I am a #deptof1 and the only World Language teacher in my district, I get to be with the English teachers for our PLC time at school. This is actually amazing, since we all teach using novels, there are so many ways we can collaborate and share. I have learned a lot about teaching with novels from the great English teachers at my school. At one of our recent meetings, the awesome junior high English teacher talked about a technique she used in her class for interpersonal speaking called a "fishbowl." I decided this was something I would like to try out and then did some research.
