Bilingual Education

Collection by EduPIN


As an elementary teacher living abroad, I'm always looking for new and exciting bilingual teaching resources. My goal is to fill this board with ideas for fun & engaging activities, games, centers, printables, crafts, snacks & more! RULES: You can pin up to 3 appropriate pins per day. Use a 1:9 pin ratio (1 paid product for every 9 freebies or ideas). Limit repins to once a month. Also, please do not invite to this board.

Independent Reading Anchor Charts

Independent Reading Anchor Charts

Thought I'd share a few quick anchor charts I have created with my kids with you all that I use to get our independent reading time up and going effectively. I start the year by introducing the three ways to read a book: "Read the Pictures", "Read the Words", "Retell the Story". I demonstrate all three to the students, then give them several opportunities to practice while I monitor their reading. Retelling is something we work on all year long! Another activity we do, which is very similar…

Types of Writing Chart in Spanish

Bilingual Writing Center

I've been working hard these past couple of weeks implementing my centers. Creating charts for my students in both English and Spanish is a challenge. We have multiple sources for the English but very few for the Spanish. This one is one I saw on a blog...not sure which one but I would like to give credit if you know where it came from. My students discussed what good writers can write about and we came up with this list. I added some clipart as a visual scaffold for my English only…

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

December is one of my favorite months in my classroom. I love the holidays, the decorations, and the BREAK! ;). Each December we embark on a "Winter Celebrations Around the World" unit, which is always just so much fun! At the beginning of last week, I introduced my students to the unit by giving them the opportunity to share some of their winter traditions and memories. Each child wrote down a favorite winter past time on a post-it, then we sat in a circle and shared them as a class. We…

Super Citizens

Super Citizens

This past week we have been focusing on how to be good citizens! After learning what a citizen is, we worked to come up ideas relaying things we could do to be good citizens of our communities! Yes, yes....I made a boo boo and used a sentence strip to cover it up rather than re-do the whole poster! You can barely tell right?! Here are some examples of what my kiddos wrote on their post-its: The next day we put our ideas into action. I shared with the kiddos that not only were we going to…

Winter Characters!

Winter Characters!

This week we have been focusing on character traits like it is nobody's business! To make it a little more relevant and exciting we have been tying it in with some good ole' winter reads! Here are the three titles we focused on this week: We started the week with !Me gusta el invierno! After reading, we worked together as a class to brainstorm words to describe our furry, red friend. Here are some that the kiddos came up with: We took the trait writing a step further the next day after…

Spanish High Frequency Word Race Game

Building Automaticity: Carrera de palabras/Word Race

Don't forget about our giveaway of Blooming Writers/El escritor floreciente! You can submit comments until noon CST tomorrow (Friday, February 24th)! There is a lot of emphasis on fluency these days. If a student is struggling with fluency in reading, we first identify what type of fluency work needs to be done. Does the student first need to develop automaticity with decoding and calling words? Or, if automaticity is already in place, does he need work with prosody to make his reading sound…
