I'm often amazed by the sorts of things that are popular on Pinterest and other social media. I try hard to make good lessons that will interest students and teachers, that use authentic language, and that are culturally relevant. But what gets pinned and re-pinned are the jokes. I guess that makes sense, really. Jokes appeal to everyone and lessons only really are of interest to teachers, so I'm not complaining.
But try to find seasonal jokes in the fall that aren't all turkeys morbidly trying to avoid their demise! Yikes! I don't think I find that sort of thing very humorous, but I must be in the minority on that particular opinion. I only included a couple of those jokes here, but there are plenty of them online if you are interested.
Without further ado, here is the November humor roundup:
And, if you are looking for an activity to do on Thanksgiving with your Spanish classes, I have one available on TpT for a song. You get vocabulary, reading comprehension, Power Point with foods and traditions, and a cultural comparison. It's awesome, I'm just sayin'. (Spanish 2-3)
And, at the request of my 6-year-old son, I have delved into designing elementary school content as well. This Thanksgiving Fun Pack is approved by him as fun and got a thumbs up - though the crossword puzzle was a bit hard for him. It is intended for grades 1-3 but some of it might be appropriate for older or younger learners.
Hasta pronto, amigos. --AnneK
