Students always ask why they have to know Spanish. It's all around us!! And this PPT is proof. It includes 125 pictures of all sorts of signs and labels showing how prevalent the Spanish language is in our society.
It will awaken your students to be more observant and to NOTICE Spanish words in their lives. It's in stores, on signs, on products and they are the names of our cities and streets! But interestingly, they tend not to notice. That's where you come in and open their eyes!
There are 125 slides!! (This took me over a year to gather these pictures)
*This is a Power Point in PDF format.
All pictures are from California.
