Earlier in the week, I wrote Part 1 of Starting Spanish Interactive Notebooks. You may want to check that out HERE if you haven't already. Today, I wanted to share a few more thoughts that have developed from my use of INBs in Spanish classes.

Hi all!! I hope you all have enjoyed your summer as much as I have. Mine was busy, busy, busy and packed full of changes. I'll save all that for another post, but I wanted to publicly address some questions that I've recently received from several readers who are interested in starting interactive notebooks in their classes this upcoming school year. Thanks guys for inspiring me to jump back on the blog train and share what's worked for me in regards to using interactive notebooks in my Spanish classes.

In my last blog post, I posted about how much I am enjoying Periscope. If you aren't familiar, Periscope is an app and website that allows for interactive live video broadcasting. "Scopes" are saved on the app and website for 24 hours. While I'm just getting into scoping myself, I love how easy it is to share ideas. I mentioned in my last blog post that it's been hard for me to find time to write, but, with Periscope, it's easy to just pop on and talk for a few minutes. To find me on Periscope just search @islandteacher1.

Taking a time out from the "teacher posts" for more of a "life post". When I began blogging (although very rarely) almost 3 years ago, my blog was all about our upcoming move and settling in to a new life on an island in the Caribbean. 10 months ago, it transitioned into a Spanish teaching/life on an island blog. Well, now the time has come for yet another transition. 4 weeks from today, we board a plane to head back to the US on a new adventure. It's hard to even write about it. It makes it seem more real. While we knew that we wouldn't be here forever, it still doesn't make it any easier to leave.

¡Hola! Thanks for checking out Spanish Freebie Friday. I hope you'll stop by on Fridays to check out a new FREE resource that you may find useful in your classroom. I've dropped the ball on Spanish Freebie Fridays lately...there are some big changes going on for me (a whole other blog post for another day, ha!). I hope to continue the quest to cover a wide range of resources as I attempt to post a new freebie each Friday this year. I love discovering new, helpful, fun resources and I'll be sharing them with you! Additionally, from time to time I'll offer a Friday FLASH Freebie where I'll list an item in my store for FREE for a very limited time. You'll want to follow me on Facebook to stay up to date on any FLASH Freebies! You can follow my blog via email (sign up on the side bar) OR Bloglovin to remember to check back on Fridays.
