  1. Maybe someone can send them in the comment fields below in different languages and then I can make a category for them for easy access, and put them up as posters on the non-private side of this site under “TPRS Resources” where all the other posters are.
    Of course the kids have a hard time with these words. They are not easy. I am not big on posters but if any of us are going to be doing free writes we simply must have these boys up on the wall. Call it a pre-AP strategy when your administrator comes into the room.
    (Dazzle them before they razzle you. I got to the point where if I saw an admin in the hallway I would rush up to them to tell them in lengthy fashion what I was doing in my classroom that week. They stopped coming around so often.)

  2. I have a few additional words plus some of Ben’s list. I also find yesterday, today, tomorrow, everyday, sometimes, and once helpful. These let me speak more naturally with the kids, because I can point to them & pause. I think for these meaty, powerful words, it might be the best way to introduce them: lots of scattered use of them for months.
    because
    although
    if
    only
    first, …
    otherwise
    both/all
    or (in a sentence)
    while/when/during
    Chinese won’t type correctly in the PLC, but I have my equivalent poster (and a Question Words poster) free here: https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Chinese-word-wall-posters-Question-Words-and-Connectors-1884652

  3. OK Diane I updated the list with your additions. Now people just have to give us, below, translated versions in their languages. I would but am slammed, as many who have sent me posts to share with the group know, because they haven’t shown up in the flow of articles. It’s another log jam. I’ll get it cleared out by next week and if you haven’t seen your posts yet, rest assured that I haven’t forgotten them.

    1. thanks for your work Lance. What’s with all the ? marks taking the place of vowels?
      I wish I had this list at the beginning of the year. I have put some of these up on a poster at the beginning (which is new for me) and it has helped my students a lot. Some of these words which I use most often now they have down because students will turn to that poster and get it immediately. I’ll have to update my list when I get the time.
      Also a side-note about posters being super helpful for students. Yesterday I had them writing the next part of the story (in part because I almost lost my voice). In order to do that I project some questions so that answering them would give them the details for writing, and I loved seeing some of them get up and walk around the room to look at the posters to improve what they were writing. They really wanted to be able to say -whatever it is they wanted to say- in Latin.

      1. Effing unicode, that’s what. Those are long vowels.
        so – sic
        later – postea

        both – ambo
        yesterday – heri
        today – hodie
        tomorrow – cras
        everyday – cotidie
        sometimes – non numquam
        (once upon a time – olim)
