PLACES IN THE CITY PAM KAATZ aka La Anciana Venerable (all typos are the result of senility, not ignorance.) I need to give credit to my niece who came through for me when I mentioned that I needed some drawings to illustrate the places in the city. She was in college, actually studying art. After she sent (as in MAILED) me her first drawing, I think I hurt her feelings when I told her, that while it was a lovely drawing, I had in mind something much more simple. No extra details, just t

VERBOS QUE SE CONFUNDEN Pam Kaatz aka La Anciana Venerable One year I assigned a project for which each student in my Spanish 3 class had to make something to explain some language detail/s that had been hard for him/her to understand-- OR just some clever way to teach certain vocabulary--OR how to make someone understand a particular point of grammar--OR something to motivate students to study another language. I approved each basic idea, and they went from there. You might have seen my ki

WEIRD WORDS and LINGUISTIC HUMOR Pam Kaatz--Color Connection WEIRD WORDS are words that… look different but sound the same-- look the same but sound different-- look and sound the same but have different meanings-- are frequently mispronounced and/or misused-- et cetera, et cetera, et cetera English is HARD!

ACCENT RULES--STRESS--DIPHTHONGS--MEANING PAM KAATZ AKA La Anciana Venerable All typos are the result of senility, not ignorance. THESE LESSONS ARE NOT INTENDED TO BE USED BEFORE YOU HAVE HAD NUMEROUS COMMUNICATIVE LESSONS AND ALREADY HAVE THE STUDENTS SPEAKING SOMEWHAT. LAS VOCALES LESSON: I also included the explanation of LAS VOCALES in the lesson EL ALFABETO primarily because the names of the letters are pronounced more “correctly” if students are aware of the correct sound of the vo

MEASUREMENTS IN ENGLISH EXPRESSIONS CHANGED TO METRIC Pam Kaatz This lesson is meant to teach with humor. We are simply making our students aware that we have many expressions or famous sayings that contain units of measurement that originated in England. This is a topic that I wouldn’t touch with a 3.05 meter pole. I did this lesson while subbing and discovered that many young people were not able to figure out what a 22-liter hat was because they had never hea

I did a maternity leave substitute teaching job for a French teacher. Having taught Spanish for 30 years and having studied 15 college hours of French in the latter part of the 20th Century, I was considered the “most qualified” sub. Notice the quotation marks. One of the topics that we had to “study” was double-object pronouns. I had trouble understanding those back in the last century, but it seemed to get through my thick skull finally. Having just started experimenting with visual lesson

PALABRAS COMPUESTAS Many words are formed with the third person singular of a present tense verb followed by a noun. For example, we translate "the birthday" into Spanish as "el cumpleaños." This is actually the verb "cumplir" + the noun "años." The subject of the verb is “it”—in this case, "the day." It completes years of your life, so it is the "cumple-años," or the "year-completer." Using the vocabulary list given with the "fill in the blanks" worksheet, the stud

SI VAS PARA CHILE A couple of years ago, I taught SI VAS PARA CHILE, a folksong that I learned in Argentina in 1968. It had haunted me for years, then finally they invented the internet for me so I could hear it again. (Of course, that did not dawn on me for about 20 techo-challenged years.) For the class listening activity, I found a great quartet--LOS HUASOS QUINCHEROS-- singing in the folklore style typical of Chile. The video aspect was not well-recorded, but the so

WHY A LESSON ON MAYAN NUMERALS? Appropriate for Math, World Cultures/Social Studies, Spanish APPROPRIATE FOR MATH: Most students are not aware that our numeric system is called the “Arabic system.” I often wonder what would have happened to the world, well, to me personally, because there is NO WAY that I could ever have passed a MATH class taught with Roman numerals! I wonder if THEY had Common Core programs? It is so obvious that our numbering system is based on the fact
SER and ESTAR: VISUAL LESSON TO INCREASE UNDERSTANDING OF THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THESE TWO VERBS BY EXAMINING THEIR LATIN ORIGINS IN OTHER WORDS: A SUPER-SILLY POWER POINT LESSON THAT CREATES A VISUAL IMAGE OF HOW ONE VERB SPEAKS OF CHANGEABLE CONDITIONS AND THE OTHER VERB DOESN’T. WOW! That was probably the longest title ever written to introduce a very short power point lesson. Spanish teachers have to deal with the concept that the Spanish language has two verbs to express our English

►LOS ADJETIVOS---VARIAS LECCIONES DIFERENTES Over the 30 years that I taught, I developed many lessons that involved some aspect of dealing with adjectives—perhaps I should say “a kinder, gentler way to understand gender and number.” Rather than post these lessons separately, I am combining them. The lessons were not designed to be used together, so there is no certain order in which to use them. You as the teacher can study them to see when it would be most appropriate for your students.

BONUS LESSON: LAS VOCALES This is for very beginning classes--or a review for those who need to work on pronunciation. It explains that the Spanish vowels are much easier than English. The concept of strong and weak vowels is explained. It would be best to do this first so that the pronunciation starts off well. The lesson is totally explained in the extra files that are included.

Dear Russian Teachers: For a long time, 83 teachers had viewed my Cyrillic Alphabet kit, and no one had purchased it yet. My sales have increased to FOUR kits. Please read their comments. I wish I could make you understand what it is really like. The simple visual, physical image of the sound is more powerful than the written equivalent in the learner's native language. For several years I went as a volunteer "speaker" to the 6th grade World Cultures classes in the Middle School where

The INTERNATIONAL FORUM KIT was first published in 1988, based on a lesson that I developed a few years before that. On an impulse one day in class, I grabbed some 3x5 cards and wrote the names of some countries. I gave one to the first person in each row; everyone in that row was to pretend to be from that country. These were in my prehistoric, caveman (politically correct--cave-person) days of "Building Artificial Reality" lessons. Wow! Have we come a LONG way since then! My so-called “plan” w

Each card has all 12 shapes and all 12 colors, but no 2 cards have the same shape of the same color. For example, if you have a red circle on your card, no one else has a

Over the years I have written a few articles. Some were published in local teacher organization publications. They are just sitting here on my computer, so I decided to share them if anyone out there might be interested. 1. WHO, WHOM AND WHOSE—I tried to use humor to explain how to use these pronouns correctly. You will learn about these characters: who-ists; whom-ists, and whom-ists wannabes—those who use WHOM when it is not necessary, trying to impress others with their superior knowledge
