My favorite thing to teach is colors.
Colors are everywhere and in everything. Yet, of all the color lessons that I have taught in English, Spanish, German (ages ago), and French, one of my favorite central topics is the gumball machine.
Lesson Plan Objective: To teach target lingo (colors and shapes) and Lingtechlingo using a Sustained Affective Stimulus of creating gumballs with ‘Autoshapes’ into an animated PPT.
Target lingo: The colors
LingtechLingo: Abre (open), cierra (close), aprieta (click), lleva (drag), inserta (insert), colorea (color), busca el color (search for the color..), escribe (write/type), cambia (change)
Step 1: Introduce the target lingo, post it for all to see, practice it once with repetition, discuss.
Step 2: LingTECHlingo- Using the computer, each student at a computer, practice kinesthetically the LingTECH process. Demonstrate first, then have the students do it along with you. Do as third time to see how much they’ve grasped.
