2014 - año del selfie

Suitable for AS Spanish?

Here is the resource on textivate: http://www.textivate.com/menu-5rljn1

See the pdf resources below - plenty of sequencing activities to choose from, plus a gapfill, a separate the words activity, and anagrams text, an initials text and a fill in the vowels text.

Here's a link to the full article, from which an extract was taken for the resources below: http://www.bbc.co.uk/mundo/noticias/2014/12/141210_trending_selfie_2014_gtg

Here are those 11 pdfs (in no particular order):

La crisis y el consumo navideño en España


The pdfs below were printed from this resource on textivate: www.textivate.com/menu-rhhjn1

The resource in the above link contains about 30 interactive exercises all based on the one text.

The text is about the effect of the crisis on consumers in Spain, and it was taken from this article on the Eroski Consumer website - revista.consumer.es/web/es/20131201/economia_domestica/77602.php - which goes on to give consumers ideas for spending less at Christmas.

The worksheets below were printed using Google Chrome's 'save as pdf' feature (via the 'Print worksheet' button on the textivate screens.) This blog post talks more about worksheet printing on textivate.

En la cafetería (embedded activities with images)

This text was put together as part of a Spanish unit of work which included food and drink, ice-cream flavours, euros, dialogues, pictures, sounds etc and which was combined into a free TaskMagic standalone program (for Windows).

This program contains over 250 interactive exercises and over 60 worksheets, and it can be downloaded completely free from this page on the TaskMagic blog: taskmagic.posthaven.com/taskmagic3-spanish-sample-unit-en-la-cafeteri (lots more info about the resource there too).

The text used for this blog is from 1 of the 16 files that make up that TaskMagic resource.

Pobre Ana (Blaine Ray's TPRS Spanish story) Chapter 1, part 1 of 5

If you're a TPRS teacher and you've been presenting and practising stories in preparation for the reading of chapter 1 of Pobre Ana, hopefully you'll find this blog post useful.

I just want to show how easy it is to create a range of practice activities based precisely on the language that you want to focus on, using textivate.

To create the resources on this blog post, I typed in the text from the book and added some English to Spanish matching items. (NB: I split chapter 1 of Pobre Ana into 5 parts, and the resources in this post are just based on the first part.)
