Here’s my 5 for Friday post – two weeks in a row!
We had some more weather fun in our Spanish interactive notebooks. It’s been really yucky this week, so practicing our cloudy and foggy expressions was perfect.
On Wednesday I had something super special and “unico” happen to me. I received a birthday card from my little brother who is studying in Chicago. Inside was a handwritten poem not just to me but also about me. I’ve actually never had anybody write anything about me that I can remember. It really meant a lot.
He would hate for me to share this publicly probably, but I seriously doubt he’ll ever find this post.
I had one of the coolest learning experiences happen this week. I’ll explain it more in-depth hopefully in a future post, but here’s basically what happened:
- Students created very short vocabulary presentations with the 30hands app on five weather instruments we are reviewing. Here’s an example.
- I created QR codes that linked to the presentations.
- We pasted them in our science interactive notebooks.
- Students studied at home for a quiz by scanning and listening to each others presentations. Pretty much awesome sauce! Today I gave them a few minutes to review and they were all scanning and listening to the vocabulary over and over again.
