(Online) Elementary Spanish with Annabelle Allen
Experience Annabelle Allen (AKA La Maestra Loca) teaching Spanish to a group of children ages 6-11 at Express Fluency’s summer language intensive and teacher training workshop in August 2017. The video starts from the first moments Annabelle meets the group and covers 4 days of language class (10+ hours of footage). In a short time Annabelle is able to create a vibrant classroom community and engage students in picking up Spanish effortlessly. This video is excellent PD for ANY language teacher, but it is invaluable for elementary Spanish teachers in particular.
Teachers will experience Annabelle’s approach to classroom management, tons of different brain break activities, how she personalizes the class and gets to know her students, and loads of CI (comprehensible-input) strategies such as storyasking, picturetalk, movietalk, and so much more!
