The Pencil Metaphor

What kind of teacher are you? 
I love this blogpost, and I am reposting it here. Thank you Elizabeth Charles and Teach!

By the way, I am somewhere between the SHARP ones and the LEADers! 

License Plates...Soy de Clearwater, Florida

I have to admit, I stole this wonderful idea from a high school Spanish teacher in Pinellas County.  But, I did add my own creative flair and parameters to it! Students were asked to create personal car License Plates as a writing and speaking prompt for language class.
Attached are my Activity Instructions, as well as my students' work as examples.
Happy creating and speaking!

We are so excited to connect with them!
