While in Madrid, when I'm not wandering around the cobblestone streets or eating fresh tortilla espanola or people-watching at one of the many plazas, I'm making lesson plans using all of the great photos and knowledge that I've been acquiring while here. I love incorporating real-world places, activities and current events into my lesson plans because that makes learning the Spanish language more tangible and interesting for my students.
Check out the various lessons that I made this weekend. Each are available to buy if you click the title of each lesson (it's a link). Like always, each lesson comes with an answer sheet if applicable. Thanks!
