My mentor and cohort next door has a BIG and empty bulletin board outside of his room that he salvaged from a neighboring school. There is a paper background, a lovely border with hello in multiple languages, and it says “español” at the top – but that’s as far as it goes! From time to time last year, Spanish Club and other organizations put announcements on there but there was alway a ton of empty space there. I always cringed when I walked by, thinking of all the unused space.
So I’ve been thinking all summer long about a worthwhile project that would be bulletin board worthy and it’s finally hit me! PINTEREST BOARDS FOR SPANISH COUNTRIES!!!
This is what I am planning:
Students will be assigned a Spanish speaking country. Students will be given a copy of my Pinteresante (Pinterest+ Interesante = Pinteresante!) sheet, which is based off of the Pinterest format.
Students will fill in the top portion with their name, a picture/drawing of themselves, a Spanish quote from an author/musician/politician from his/her country, and a repin section to add friends names. There is a section for students to add their board name, which will be their country’s name.
The individual pins will be information about the country. There are seven spaces for pins – all pin spaces include a picture area (could be hand drawn or printed off), a section to add information about the cultural item chosen, and a “pinneado de” at the bottom to list the source where they obtained their info!
I then intend to hang them on this empty bulletin board.
