CI Magic

bola adivinaWho didn’t love their Magic 8 Ball back in the day? Dust it off for LOADS of CI!  We use my Magic 8 Ball all the time, nearly every class. (I got mine  years ago from Teachers’ Discovery, and it answers in SPANISH! But any Magic 8 ball would work.)

  • Are we going to win tonight’s basketball game against our rival? Obviamente
  • Will it snow so much that tomorrow we will have a snow day? Muy dudoso
  • Is Señora Chase in a good mood today? Claro que sí
  • Will we play Mafia today? Es posible
  • Are the Patriots going to win the Super Bowl? No puedo responder

Well….I just learned that there’s an ONLINE MAGIC 8 BALL IN SPANISH!!!

Update: Beware! This magic 8 ball was just changed and now it has a naughty “middle finger” as one of the options! I’m so disappointed! I will try to contact the site and ask if they can leave us a school appropriate version. 

This is a game changer, PEOPLE! Now everyone can see it at once! All day I started my classes with lots of questions about life, school, students, everything and called a student to click the ball to show the answer. You could hear everyone holding their breath waiting for the response to show up in the blue triangle. I wrote on the board Espero que sí and Espero que no (I hope so/ I hope not) and students had to respond with one of those after we asked the question and before the Bola Mágica told us the answer. Update: Beware! This magic 8 ball was just changed and now it has a naughty “middle finger” as one of the options! I’m so disappointed! I will try to contact the site and ask if they can leave us a school appropriate version.
