I published a new post about celebrating Birthdays in Spanish Class earlier this year.

Angie Trowbridge responded to my email about the new blog post with this question. “I would love to hear more about the different activities you did in the classroom to build community – other than today’s blog post, can you direct me to others about this?”

I responded with many ideas and thanked Angie for the great idea for a future blog post. This made me realize I have a TON of posts that focus on building a positive classroom community. Now I am finally expanding on the answers to the question about building classroom community in Spanish class. Save this information for planning for back to school.

Positive Spanish Classroom Community Week 1

  • NAME GAME SPEEDBALL – Play name game speedball day 1 to ensure everyone knows each other’s names. Even if you think everyone already knows each other in a small school. Still, play and blame it on the teacher wanting to learn names. I guarantee there will be names that are new to someone. Grab a name game speedball freebie at the bottom of this post.

  • WEEKEND CHAT – Even though I just mentioned Weekend Chat as a routine, it deserves its own spot. Making time to connect as humans every Monday is key to establishing a positive classroom community. You can use my ready-to-go Weekend Chat 2024.

  • GET OUTSIDE together – Volunteer, host a service day, service project, field trip, or do something together outside of the classroom. A positive Spanish class community often comes from working together for a common goal. Read this new post about field trips to learn more.

Building a positive class community in Spanish class is a daily task. It starts before students arrive. Then positive routines are set during week 1. Finally, just like anything, what you allow will continue.
