Testing, testing…

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

I’ve made four OPTIONAL tests which cover the content of BigBook 1.  They are designed to be used after every fourth lesson in BB1.  I uploaded them to the appropriate lessons in the BB1 virtual classroom.

Please modify these tests as you see fit.  You can do parts of them orally, have your student dictate the answers for you to write, skip parts, etc.  How well your student performs on these written tests may not accurately reflect accomplishment in the the language, so please make accommodations so your student can demonstrate his or her knowledge.

Also, use these as a tool to determine what needs to be worked on.  Allow the student to do the relearning and review work and then retake the test to show mastery.

As always, let me know of any mistakes or typos.

Romulus & Remus Cards

Sunday, October 17th, 2010

As I began teaching through BigBook, Volume 1, this fall I wanted an activity to review the story of Romulus and Remus from Lesson 1 for my 8-10 yo class.  So, I made a series of 18 picture cards with captions on them that tells the story from the time of evil Uncle Amulius through to the death of Romulus.  I used pictures as well as text so that  students who resist reading can still put them in order.  I printed a few sets of these on card stock, shuffled them, and gave them to groups of students to line up.  After everyone was done we reviewed the story together.  (Then we acted it out.)  For fun, we even drew in some extra details on the cards.  This class is 90% boys so they definitely had to have some blood on the swords…

I thought you all might enjoy these so I added them to the Fun Stuff tab above.
