I was reading through some of my favorite blogs and discovered that On October 2 there was a GIANT squid that was discovered on a beach in Spain! (Um…cool!)
What a fun random thing to talk about in class! This gave me the perfect opportunity create materials from an Authentic Resource to incorporate in my classes.
After the students read, discussed, and answered questions about the “Monster” in Spain we used THIS MONSTER-Y MOVIE to further our discussion. Together we wrote a narrative to go with this movie. It allowed us to practice reflexive verbs and prepositions. The students were very engaged in this. One thing I LOOOOOVE about Movie Talks- student’s forget that they are learning and not speaking English. Oh so Fabulous!
