Goodbye Blogspot, Hello musicuentos.com

And... LAUNCH!

Here we go! Very soon, visiting this site will redirect you to the brand new home of Musicuentos, musicuentos.com.

After four years of blogging with blogspot, why the move?  Well, for one thing, it was just time for a change, and I’d been thinking about and talking about how to change and improve my blog for a while.  For a few more reasons, I have been doing some consulting

She's here! (And we're moving!)

It's been a long hiatus from the blog but sometimes there are more important things!  Charis was born June 9, a blessing to our family.  We're sleep-deprived but in love.

My other announcement is that my amazing programmer husband is working on a birthday present for me - Musicuentos is being completely redesigned and will have a new home.  There are lots of exciting changes coming.  Keep

Another change: Survey says...

The "I CAN" goals in elementary are going well, so it's time to keep up the lessons learned from Central States and change something else.One session I went to (a best-of-some-state) was about designing an entire year's curriculum around a theme. This teacher planned her whole year around the idea that her class was moving to Madrid. All the grammar and chapters and assessments, everything had

Design your own final exam

photo by Lawrence Berekely National LaboratoryThis year as I contemplated my final exam for Spanish 3, I didn't want to do what they did last year, because I like the PhotoPeach reflection much better as a relaxing ending to AP Spanish. Since mMy most popular blog post ever is about student choice in homework, I thought, why not the final exam too?My students are all interested in different

What I'm changing this week

I just got back from the Central States conference, and although I only attended five sessions, as usual my mind is spinning with all the things I need to change (which would be why I only attended five sessions!). I concentrated somewhat on elementary-related issues, since that is where I struggle the most, as a teacher completely trained to teach high school. The list of things I think I need

Repost for CSC12: Increasing target language

I just finished presenting my Best of Kentucky session, Target [Language]: Say Less, Expect More at the Central States Conference. Thanks so much to the few who stuck it out to attend the last session of the last day! Here's a repost of my presentation for them and anyone who wants it:.prezi-player { width: 550px; } .prezi-player-links { text-align: center; }Target [Language]: Expect More, Say

A storytelling success story

In honor of last night's #langchat topic, I want to share something that happened in one of my kindergarten classes this week.At my school, we have mandatory Spanish from age 3 in preschool through 10th grade. Until 2nd grade, however, students only receive between 15 and 20 minutes of instruction per week. I've been told many times that this is a waste of my time, and I know there's very

Not going to ACTFL again, but for the best reason ever

Last year I didn't go to ACTFL because my proposal wasn't accepted and I didn't get to score AP exams to be able to fund the trip.This year I knew I wasn't even going to try to go, but the reason is much happier. I'll let Zoe tell you:So, here we go again! :)The general malaise has lasted a lot longer this time and my blog and my grading have taken the hit for that. I'm feeling pretty good most
