As many of you know, I have a middle school endorsement in Spanish and teach an elementary after school Spanish class. I was absolutely thrilled when I came across Ingles 360. This fabulous blog is the creation of Analia Capurro, an Argentinean who teaches English as a second language in her country. Ana is the designer and owner of Ingles360® and the author of amazing educational resources that she sells through the site (and often gives away as freebies)!
Ana believes, after 20 years of teaching children, that the only way children love learning is if we, as adults, love learning and teaching, too.
Ana designed her resources with the idea of promoting a learning environment where laughter, fun, friendship and companionship are as important as any language structure.
Ingles360® was born with a desire of sharing experiences, tips, ideas that work and great moments with teachers, mothers and friends all around the globe.
I was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to try some of Ana’s resources, and wow, what a collection! Here are a few of the items I downloaded (many with an adorable Valentine’s theme):
Lovely Shapes is a fabulous way to teach little ones shapes. This set includes an adorable game that will help children learn their shapes while having a great time. The easy to follow instructions for putting it together make it even better! I can’t wait to adapt this for my Spanish class, especially since we are meeting on Valentine’s Day and I had already planned on teaching shapes to go along with the heart theme of the day! 🙂
In honor of the Chinese New Year, Ana created some wonderful packets using the signs of the Chinese Zodiac as inspiration. Children can learn names of animals and adjectives that describe the animals with posters, mats, and more. I love that this is a way to teach vocabulary while incorporating multicultural elements!
I also was able to check out Ana’s wonderful unit on Dental Health, which includes a ton of great resources for using Dental Health Month for teaching vocabulary, sounds, dental health & more! From a flannel board set to posters and games, this set includes everything you need to this the best Dental Health Month ever for your students!
