I’m not sure if it’s because the weather has changed or because I enjoy the luxurious days I actually get to sleep in, but I had a hard time getting out of bed this morning.  I got on my phone and while checking various social media I came across this amazing idea to teach and usted (informal/formal) to students:

Isn’t that genius!?

I think this would work really well in both traditional/textbook and TPRS/CI classrooms.  If you don’t have an old tie in the house you could use, I bet you could find a really cheap one at the local Goodwill or thrift store.  This could also turn into a great lesson for boys about how to tie a tie, and you could turn it into a conversation about who wears ties, when it’s appropriate to wear ties, the origins of ties… the opportunities are endless!
