Interactive websites: practicing house/location/color vocab
If you have a way to project a webpage somewhere in your room, you’ve got to check out es.barbie.com. We did this in Spanish 1 today to practice house vocabulary, but you could use it for so many things. We also did the makeover part of it to practice colors. It’s amazing how much they can pick up off a website just from context because they spend so much time online! Also, I have to tell you that my freshman boys were almost more involved in this than the girls. For whatever reason–because it was girls or whatever–they were calling out how her hair should be, what color eye shadow, etc. It was a lot of fun.
Remember, if we frustrate them, they’ll give up, and that’s the blunt truth of it.
