What I’ve been working on lately

Posted by

As most of you know, I’m not teaching at this phase of my life..although I will be teaching for a few hours on one day in a couple weeks for the annual Kids 2 College program…I’m saving up my energy already! Teaching is exhausting!! Since Millie joined the family six weeks ago, time for me to work on projects (my favorite hobby–lesson planning!) has been limited, but I’ve gotten together a few new things for y’all to use. Some are things that I used while teaching, and some are brand new. The Gemelos/Jumeaux game, for example, was inspired by the…oh…323405822034895 times a day that I play Spot It! with my four year old. I used La quiero a morir in my classes after a heritage student suggested it to me, and I filled out the plans that I used to use with some new activities to comprehens-ify it even further. All of the resources below are paid, but if money is tight make sure to check out the 70+ free resources in my TpT store (just sort by price: ascending) or wade through the blog archives–it’s Spring Break, after all!
