First Days of School - Additional Materials




Last July I wrote a blog post about activities for the first day (week) of school.  One of the suggestions was to do a MovieTalk of a clip of the video of Mafalda's "Primer día de escuela".

I started with a new group of students last week so I made a few additional materials related to the video clip.  I already had the transcript of the story from last semester, both in the present tense and the past tense, so I added:

- screenshots to help students with a retell or a timed writing
- before/after activity
- correct one or two words in a sentence to make the sentence correct
- match sentences to screenshots
- order the events

Since there are so many activities, I can select and choose which ones are right for each class.

There are screen shots of the activities below.  I uploaded it to Google Drive so I could get a link to share them, but it changed the formatting of the documents.  I'll work on fixing the format changes in Google Drive, but until then if you 'd like any of the files, send me a message on Twitter or leave a message in the comments. If you don't want your email published in the comments, mention that and I will not make the comment public.

    Great ideas and it helped me with one problem : to use present or past with Movie Talk. So both works.

  43. I just started Movie Talk - this is inspiring! pbillings@email.medfield.net

    What feedback have you received from students about this method??

    ReplyDelete

    1. Overall, they enjoy the Movie Talks because its a video and it is engaging for them. This movie with Mafalda isn't super interesting but I like to use it for certain structures. I like to search for videos that are interesting for the students and that helps to keep them engaged.

      It is a nice change from stories or from reading. Another tool in the toolbox. :-)
