As a teacher of English as a Second Language I enjoy encouraging my students to try out their language skills without being afraid of making mistakes. To this end I set out the parameters of a lesson and then stand back to allow the students to interact in dialogues and conversations amongst themselves, intervening only to help when difficulties are reached. I also have a lot of experience in using multi media and videos within the classroom, particularly in a Language Lab situation. Over the past several years I have created materials using Powerpoint, Prezi, Keynote and animated videos which I have used to introduce grammar points, reading topics and also improve listening skills.

Over the last few years I have also introduced literature, science and history topics into my reading and writing classes. I enjoy making addtional resources for my students, particularly animated videos and multi media teaching materials that can be used in the classroom, language lab or for individual study. As well as making animated movies for classroom use, I have also achieved notice and won awards as a director of short 'machinima movies, including reaching the jury level (top 10) in the 2011 Machinima Expo Film Festival.

Emergent Reader: My Mm Book: Sight Words (look, at, the)
Feb

2018

This emergent reader, My Mm Book, is connected to several CCGPS listed below. This eleven page book is designed so that you can copy the book, cut in half, staple, and then it is ready for use. The eleven pages consist of a title page “My Mm Book,” seven pages including a black and white picture that begins with /m/ at the top of each page and a sentence under the picture. These seven pages include the sentence “Look at the (then the word to match picture is shown, such as “Look at the mitten.”). The seven pictures included are mitten, moon, mailbox, man, monkey, mouse, and muffin. At the end of the book, there are three optional activity pages (for differentiation) which may be included depending on the level of your students. You may want to include all or some of these for remedial (intervention) pages or enrichment pages. One of these optional pages requires students to circle the uppercase and lowercase letter being used in the book, one requires students to write 5 uppercase and 5 lowercase letters, and the last one requires students to write 5 words beginning with the letter. Students can benefit from this reader by tracking print, identifying spaces between words, identifying particular letters of the alphabet, recognizing sounds (beginning, middle, and ending) in each word, and reading sight words and grade level text. For extension activities, students could add another sentence to each page giving details about each picture shown. The black and white pictures allow students the opportunity to color the pictures. This reader is great for guided reading groups, homework, or literacy center activities.

SPANISH WORD OF THE WEEK GRAPHIC ORGANIZER TEMPLATE
Feb
18
2018

This resource is 7 pages long and includes a Spanish vocabulary template for students to fill out with the new word of the week. It is ideal to help students increase their vocabulary in Spanish in a visual way. Note that this resource works well for pre-intermediate up to upper-intermediate or advanced students of Spanish.

How can you use this template?
Students will need to fill out information on the new word of the week such as: definition, synonyms, antonyms, root, prefixes, suffixes, part of speech, etc. 
I ask my students to keep a little dictionary throughout the course and each week I have them complete this template with a new word they have learned. In addition, you can ask your students to create a sentence so that they are forced to use the new word or even find examples of the word in context and bring them to class. 

I have included the same template in different colours, since my students use colours for differientating parts of speech.
