A while back I mentioned that designed my curriculum last year around the resources available on senorwooly.com and a few of you asked me to share my resources. Things have been up in the air with what I was going to be teaching next year, but I'm happy to announce that I WILL be using the same curriculum next year, so I'm going to fine-tune it and make it available to everyone on TPT - with permission from Jim Wooldridge. Although it's not the first unit I teach, the song ¿Puedo ir al baño? is available to view for free online, so I am making this unit available for free so that you can see if my style works for you.
I am working on additional units in the order that I teach them and am hoping have at least one quarter of materials available by the end of August. I use these units for Middle School Spanish, but they would also work for Spanish I. On a related note, my students are earning Spanish I credit over the course of two years, but the high school program is more traditional, so I will eventually be adding materials that connect to their textbook (En Español) to ensure they meet the high school expectations as they move into Spanish II, although I think they will easily exceed those expectations in terms of proficiency :).
This is a comprehensible input-based unit that also utilizes technology and cooperative learning. All slides and handouts are included with the unit. Resources from SenorWooly.com used with permission. Please note that these units are a work in progress (as teaching always is) and I would love to have feedback! As I learn what will best serve others' needs and create the complete set of units, this unit will be updated. Please private message me any feedback about things that need to be modified or changed. Thanks!
