Spanish 1 students (along with the Italian and French 1 classes) created designs for ugly sweaters, describing them in the target language and the trading that description with a partner. The partner took on the challenge of frosting an actual sweater shaped cookie to match the target language description given to them by their partner.
Students showed great skill both with the frosting and with the grammar concepts that we have been practicing lately, including adjective agreement, the gender of nouns and definite and indefinite articles. In order to see how successful the frosting of the cookie was, we compared it with the original student’s drawing in Notability. I think that students also enjoyed the ability to color in the app instead of using colored pencils/markers. The products were remarkably professional! And we had a lot of fun!
