What is baile viernes?
My new favorite class routine is baile viernes (dance Friday). Every day we start class with a Para Empezar bell ringer, which I glad I started at the beginning of my first year teaching. I create a Slideshow in advance with a task for students to complete including any of the following: reading and answering questions about a Spanish meme, video, teaser to a new topic, or review from the previous day’s lesson. Slowly I started implementing a certain activity for each day’s bell ringer.
