I am trying to create my own worksheets, activities, and classroom signs in Arabic in English. I will be teaching in Saudi Arabia in the fall. Does anyone have any helpful activities or able to collaborate with me on this idea?

Jessie are we allowed to add fun activities we think others might like?

Hi Maria,

Thank you for all your suggestions.  Here are the movies that we watch in Spanish 4 and AP:  El Norte, Women on the verge of a nervous breakdown, Voices Inocentes, El orfanato, Todo sobre mi madre and Stand and Deliver. I am going to order some of the movies you suggested.  Gracias por todo.

Hi Gérard.  I am showing a movie tomorrow to my Spanish IV and AP, "También la lluvia".  It is a fabulous movie but has violence and profanity so you have to prepare your students.  On the topic of inmigration I like "Bajo la misma luna".  I do a unit on the Spanish civil war and I show "Las 13 rosas" which speaks to the role of women.  Finally, my students enjoy "El internado" - scary but with substance.  I hope this helps!

We are working with the present conditional.  We have read the poem "instantes"  Students will write their own poem using si clauses:"Si pudiera vivir nuevamente.." and present it using i movie. The project will include: the written poem, images, an auditory part.

My AP French and Spanish students are working on making an invitation to visit their haunted house.  The invitation must include:  a written and an auditory parts, vocabulary related to Halloween, pictures, and a si clause.
