Fun Halloween Activity

BOO! Can you believe Halloween is right around the corner!? I’ve always loved this time of year, especially in my Spanish classes where I get to veer off of my normal lessons and do something a little creative And I love the joy and excitement the kids have around what they’re going to dress up […]

You can’t teach your child Spanish

Which sentence is correct: I like to run I enjoy to run Did you pick the first one? If you did, you’re right! Good job! 😛 The real question here, though, is WHY did you pick the first one over the second? Because you knew the grammar rules and the syntax of the English language? […]

Reindeer for breakfast?

Yesterday while I was teaching a class on healthy vs. unhealthy foods, I thought it was hilarious some of the kids’ reactions to what foods were actually unhealthy for them! The first one was potatoes. The fact that we load potatoes with tons of butter, sour cream, salt, and other goodies on top of them […]

The secret to backing up a trailer

A few weeks ago, my husband and I got a boat. Where we live, we are surrounded by water, so we knew we would get a lot of use out of it. And we weren’t kidding. We go out a few times a week (what did we do before we had this boat? IDK!?) That […]

Unlike Spanish where all the vowels make the same sound every single time with no confusing exceptions (how nice is that!?), it seems like our English vowels just do what they want […]

3….2…1…BLAST OFF!!!

Elon Musk owns SpaceX, a private spaceflight company. SpaceX planned to send new people to The International Space Station (a space station that literally circles the earth, isn’t that cool!?) The rocket was scheduled to go out on Wednesday a few weeks ago. About 15 minutes before they were supposed to launch (the astronauts were […]

Some motivation for your Saturday

People often say motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing. That’s why we recommend it daily. Hi, there! Sarah here! If you’re a human being and not a robot, sometimes you just don’t “feel like it”. That “it” could be many things! Getting your workout in, cooking dinner, doing the dishes, calling your sister, finishing […]

A birthday treat

HI! I know it’s probably not your birthday (if it is, that would be cool!), but I still have a birthday treat for you… Why? Well, when I was a kid, I always thought it was so weird that on their birthday, kids brought treats to school for the other students Their mom’s would make […]

Bedtime…or not!

Hi, there! Sarah here! Are you feeling creative? On Monday in our online Spanish class, the students and I are going to be creating a story together (completely in Spanish). It is about a girl who loves video games, but doesn’t want to go to bed. And I could use your help to think of […]
