Today’s Juego jueves group to play “Cognate Frenzy en español” was smaller than normal. I had to limit the size of the group because I only have one set of the game. There was a lot of laughter as players chose people and things that they thought were ordinario, interesante, or repulsivo. The juez (judge) picked Justin Bieber from the repulsivo choices, in case you were wondering!! ¡Ja ja!
For Juego jueves today, we took a break from playing games to make a Día de los Muertos edible craft. We decorated Campfire Giant Roasters with Wilton FoodWriter edible color markers to make marshmallow calaveritas as described here
I had to take the pictures quickly because most of them disappeared!!!

¡Bienvenidos a mi clase de español 7! This year I’ve gone “deskless” in Room 109. Why? In Spanish 7 my focus is on providing my students with as much INPUT as I can through LISTENING and READING activities. The desks just got in the way! Now there is no barrier between me and my students. It’s easy to rearrange the classroom for different activities. We can really COMMUNICATE! And now I also have room for a very cozy reading corner. I hope my students are enjoying our class as much as I am!!!
¡Feliz Año Nuevo 2018!
After reading about Christmastime celebrations in Mexico, we enjoyed Rosca de Reyes in some classes. Here’s a picture of a beautiful Rosca de Reyes prepared by Maya L. ¡Qué deliciosa!
