WHY HAVE BELL RINGERS IN SPANISH CLASS?
Classroom routines make everything smoother for teachers, as well as students. As a teacher, it makes planning for many preps easier. By keeping these routines consistent across levels, you can use the same resources such as songs across all classes, just adjusting our conversations.
Routines also help students to be less anxious about coming to your class. They feel more comfortable when they know what to expect each day.
BREAKS IN THE ROUTINE
It’s OK to pause the typical routine for certain times during the year. This is especially true for fun seasonal events. Just give students a heads up that the routine might be different for a while.
Para Empezar 2024 has the following
- Hispanic Heritage Month (Sep15-Oct15) one song from each country bracket
- Afro-latino (Feb)
- Mania musical (March)
Sometimes if we are doing a class novel and are reading a new chapter that day, we may not do the free reading as well. You have to adjust as needed.
