Getting kids motivated to learn anything nowadays is a challenge. They’re exposed to so many distractions on TV, the Internet, phones, video games – you name it. So how can you convince them that learning Spanish can be fun? Follow this old saying – show don’t tell!

Aug 31 Summer Contest- Resources for your Spanish Classroom

By Spanish Classroom 2333 Views No comments

Thank you, to all the Teachers that have shared their Resources!

We have compiled the list of the most popular:

www.flashcardmachine.com

Allows you to create online flashcards, and even use the ones that other people have made. Teachers can create flash cards for their students, or students can create them themselves.

Sites.google.com

An easy way to build a class webpage. Many teachers will probably already have webpages organized or required by their schools, but students can also benefit from building simple websites to share projects, collaborate, and display their work.

www.wordreference.com

A great site that combines Spanish-English dictionaries, monolingual dictionaries, thesaurus, and language forums. It's very complete, and the forums are a great way to find answers that deal with regionalisms, phrases, expressions, and idiomatic usage.

www.rae.es/rae.

This site has a link to the authoritative Diccionario de la lengua española, from the RAE, but it also has a link to the Diccionario panhispánico de dudas, which is a great way to clarify doubts in usage, especially for regionalisms and terms that change over time or distance.

www.pinterest.com

A great tool for teaches to share their ideas and check out what other Spanish teachers are doing in their classrooms.

www.teachingchannel.org

This website helps you learn about effective teaching practices that are used in many of America's most successful schools. Teachers are able to trade ideas and share inspiration from other teachers around the country.

www.flenj.org

The Foreign Language Educators of New Jersey website. Teachers check this website to keep informed about upcoming workshops, conventions, and conferences in the area.

www.theorganizedclassroomblog.com

Up-to-date blog entries that cover a wide variety of teaching tips, tricks, and ways to make your classroom even more enjoyable!

www.ACTFL.org

The American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages is dedicated to the improvement and expansion of the teaching and learning of all languages at all levels of instruction.

www.AATSP.com

The American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese promotes the study and teaching of the Spanish and Portuguese languages and their corresponding Hispanic, Luso-Brazilian and other related literatures and cultures at all levels of education.

www.spanishclassroom.santillanausa.com

Plaza Santillana provides Spanish teachers with resources, tips, motivation and much more! We gather seasoned professionals in the Spanish-education industry and pick their brains for some of the best strategies and classroom activities.

We have sent each participant a FREE copy of “Hablando bien se entiende la gente”.

Thank you for participating!

Keep checking for other fun giveaways and resources.
