Favourite books for PLL – Das ist ein Buch/Wo ist mein Hut?

*This is one of a series of posts about some of my favourite story books for Primary Language Learning* Moving to Switzerland added German books to my book case where previously there had only been French and Spanish. Not very many as books are exorbitantly priced  (I mostly borrowed them from the library) but some. […]

Los mellizos del tiempo – The Time Twins

Although I love a good book, eBooks are increasingly becoming part of my life for a number of reasons. One of those reasons is that, in an educational / classroom context, an eBook projected onto a IWB / via AppleTV or Reflector app is so much easier to share than a printed text. I’ve previously […]

Spanish snow day ideas!

Inspired by ideas from Jan Lewandowski and Sandra Longden on the CFBT Primary forum for snow related songs, I was reminded of a previous post in which I shared a song about Un muñeco de nieve that I had subtitled using Amara (previously called Universal Subtitles.) Below is the unsubtitled version – subtitled version is […]

¿De dónde viene el yak? – a Storybird

One final (for now!) Storybird, this time a little more complex than previously. This book is about animals and from where they come. It could be used as part of a cross curricular unit (geography /Science / Spanish). Whilst making it, I found a great website called Animalandia which has information in the form of short ‘fichas’ […]

Storybird – La vida sana *updated*

In celebration of the new features of Storybird, I’ve been back to the site and had another play around and written a new book! I’ve written about Storybird before here, here and here. Oh, and here and here too! New things on Storybird that I think are particularly useful from an educational point of view […]

Storyplace – Spanish stories online

Just rediscovered a lovely website for stories in Spanish. La Biblioteca Infantil and La Biblioteca Pre-Escolar are great for native speakers and young learners alike with stories on a variety of themes complete with accompanying activities. For example, La Pelota Dorada in La Biblioteca Infantil is a story based on a fairytale (won’t give away […]
