Summer is coming to an end. A summer that we’ve been busy: planning a wedding, taking online courses, creating new lessons, working on our website, going on vacation, watching the Women’s World Cup ,and more all while being abroad in the beautiful country of Colombia.
So here’s an update on what we’ve been working on in case you missed it:
1. CI Teacher’s Guide: We’ve put together a book for world language teachers that is perfect for new teachers or just teachers who are learning more about comprehensible input strategies. This includes strategies that we’ve successfully implemented in our own class and have kept us in the target language. This 48 page document details specific CI strategies to use as a lesson as well as specific reading strategies that will help you get the most out of any text.
2. Dolores Huerta Unit: This past school year we introduced our class to this important historical figure with a lesson starting about farm workers. After working refining the lesson for months, we finally published it. This lesson plan includes a set of storyboards about farm workers, various texts (including an editable version), prompts to go along with the documentary, Dolores, and a FVR Booklet that you can print and make available in your classroom library.
3. Everything CI Bundle: We’ve combined ALL of our CI materials into one mega download. This combines our MovieTalk Bundle, our TPRS Stories Bundle, and our FVR booklets and stories.
4. New Stamp Designs: We’ve already been working a lot on our Stamps available from SpanishTeacherShop.com
New Country Stamps: We’ve updated the designs for several countries: Bolivia, Panama, Costa Rica, Peru, Paraguay, Estadios Unidos, y Guinea Ecuatorial. See the designs of all 22 country stamps:
We’ve also have been expanding our selection of proficiency and feedback stamps to other languages.
We also updated our “My Favorite Part Stamps” and have them available in multiple languages including Spanish, French, Latin, and Chinese. Note: we can customize any stamp, so if you need a different language or are interested in something different, just let us know.
