Congratulations to the
2014 FBISD Bilingual Spelling Bee
In the last post, I talked about the teacher who inspired me, and I asked you about the teachers who inspired you. (Check it out here.) Did that get you strolling down memory lane?
When you need a little pep talk about why you chose this line of work (in May, don’t we all need one of these pretty much daily?!), take a minute to reflect on those teachers and those figures in your life, and draw some strength from them.
This spring, Texas teachers were motivated, engaged and excited to learn more about how to incorporate Spanish poetry into their bilingual or dual language classroom.
Our Santillana consultants, Patricia Acosta and Dr. Barbara Jones, also shared fun and engaging ways to incorporate using poetry in the classroom to help students expand their vocabulary, strengthen reading skills and develop Spanish proficiency. This is especially important because these are tested skills on the STAAR exam. Here, in Plaza Santillana we want to share with you the poetry activities and song that were featured in both these presentations. Enjoy!
