TPR: My Gestures…



I have been promising this blog for MONTHS…. In July, I started filming Boomerang’s of me, doing my gestures. These are hysterical little videos, but TOTALLY impractical. It wasn’t until I saw Elissa McLean’s video that I thought, I should really just FILM all of my gestures and post, because uploading all of this gifs is GOING TO TAKE FOREVER, and then they can’t be on YouTube unless I splice them all together…. So… the world’s most complicated blog has now gone to the most simple….

Here are three videos: the FIRST is an explanation of how I create and “pick” my gestures, the SECOND is high frequency words I hope to cover in Spanish 1a and some of 1b. The last is what I hope to cover in Spanish 2a. Granted, I am non-targeted so it is NEVER in this order, nor is it ever predictable. I never know when I am going to be facilitating what language, it comes organically and naturally. I hope this helps you, and I hope you’re having a FABULOUS week!

Happy Teaching!

  1. Love the 2nd gesture for “going to” . Yes!! Also loving your “seems like” gesture. So many of our gestures are almost the same! I use your “feels” gesture for “becomes/gets+emotion”. Yeah – my “realizes” is exACTly what you do! <3 Love your "follows"! Can't wait to try it! Finally, your "invita" is soOO cute! 🙂 <3 <3 <3 Thank you!

  2. My evening was composed of YOU, and more YOU! Was watching your LIVE with La Loca Brain Breaks when I got an alert from YouTube that you had a new video. So, as soon as I was done watching you on Facebook I went straight to YouTube. Glad I did! Thank you so much!!!! Have a great rest of the week!!!!

  3. Do you realize how easy it is to get lost for hours in your blogs?! Thank you so much for all the content!
