Día de la Tierra Activities for a Fresh Perspective

Springtime means we are getting outside more, enjoying the beauty the Earth provides. With Día de la Tierra upon us, it is a great time to focus on how we can sustain the beauty we experience!

Are your novice and intermediate students working on a unit about Día de la Tierra? Why not incorporate this awesome music video by Rockalingua? The tune is catchy, on-screen vocabulary supports the lyrics, and the message is on-point. It is just silly enough to get your students smiling and tapping their toes. 

EntreCulturas 3, Unidad 4 offers learners a quieter, reflective look at the natural world and sustainability. Actividad 11 asks learners consider how literature can be used to promote sustainability, as they read the poem El río recién nacido, communicate answers to sensory questions, and sketch the imagery of the poem.


Getting a Little Flashy with Picture

You have been asking for them, and here they are! Spice up your lessons with our NEW picture flashcards for EntreCulturas 1 and EntreCulturas 2 that tie to the vocabulary in the Así se dice section of each unidad. Look for them in the Recursos folder in Explorer®. Guess what? You will also find a teacher’s guide with tips and comprehensible-input activity ideas! Anybody up for some flashcard bingo?


It is Nearly Webinar Season!

We are working hard to build a great spring/summer webinar season, just for you. You may have received an email or two about the different series, but if you have not, fear not! Look for all of Wayside's upcoming Web Conferencing Events in the About>Events section of our website. Whether you are wondering how to end your school year or are ready to start thinking about the one to come, we have a webinar to suit your needs!
