Blog and Resource center for TPRS/CI Langauge teachers
(with a focus on Elementary language education and Spanish).
Over the next few weeks I will be making major changes to this site and restructuring it to be a blog and resource center for TPRS/CI teachers. Look for big changes by the end of the month. Already available below is music, cartoons, game, stories, and more from around the web broken down by topic, under the 'Theme Resource Center' header (scroll down for it). In addition to that by the end of August I will add a lot of the following:
Resource - ¡Todos las páginas!- All the pages
Music, cartoons, game, stories, and more (already available) from around the web broken down by topic if you click on the green button below.
Looking for a word wall (with pictures to talk about, and English words), hand washing sign in Spanish? Back to school worksheets? Weather posters? More? Check out my store, there are usually a few free give aways too.
A link to different movies on Youtube that can be movie talked (organized by grammar structures, and topics, with specific age level suggestions). Currently over 20 movies, but a constant work in progress.
Music Database- A link to songs and playlists that are 'TPRS/CI' friendly, organized by grammar structures and topics). The types of songs included will be similar to those found below, but better organized. Let me know if you have a song I should add! Coming soon...
World Language GAME CENTER
A list of games that are TPRS/CI friendly, with examples when available....coming soon. The only games currently available are Bad Unicorn, Word Wall Games, and 4 Corners, someday (hopefully in the not too distant future), this will become a searchable database similar to what I am creating for Movie Talk. For now, my three games are available below.
Units with mini cartoons (see example below, but at a higher production level, this was my first attempt, and I am holding the camera and drawing at the same time for part of it), games, questions, lesson suggestions! Coming as soon as I finish learning the programs (hopefully by late Spring 2017).
A blog focused on TPRS/CI in the elementary classroom, and on why TPRS/CI works with how our brain naturally functions
These are pictures of the doors in my classroom. I used contact chalk paper from Amazon (this is what I used but there are many options); and liquid chalk to make these doors. You can erase with a wet paper towel and re-draw. I run contests to let students decorate my door like this in the hall, but these doors stay up most of the time. They tend to be easier to read across the classroom than words I write on white paper for students.
