Reading, writing, listening, and speaking activities and exercises that use folders of interesting material that students can use alone or in small groups are described. The folders contain pictures or other material of interest to the students, instructions in English and Spanish, and answers. The folders are color-coded by type of activity. Reading exercises include texts with prequestions, multiple choice exercises, true-false statements, guessing games, scrambled sentences and paragraphs, and matching activities. Listening activities, generally done by pairs of students, involve one student reading a story to another, who in turn arranges a series of related pictures according to the story content. A writing activity has the student fill in the blanks in sentences related to pictures in the folder. Speaking activities, also done by pairs of students, may include describing and drawing or arranging pictures, finding differences and similarities, memorizing and describing, and locating mistakes in pictures. Puzzles and jokes adapted from commonly available books, and board games also generally available, are also recommended. (MSE)
