Diagrama de patrones gramaticales(Sentence Patterning Chart)

In this video, created for her students, Maria explains how to create sentences from a digital Sentence Patterning Chart. Notice how she teaches the key terms using sign language to make her instruction more comprehensible and engaging.

Diarios interactivos (Interactive Journals)

Maria mentioned the importance of meeting students' basic needs of security and socialization during this time. Interactive journals provide a platform for students and teachers to keep in touch. In the teachers' responses, they also have an opportunity to gently model subtle corrections without changing the work of the writer. View her examples in Spanish and in English.
