Spanish Teacher Appreciation
Happy teacher appreciation week! To celebrate YOU, I am joining the site-wide Teachers Pay Teachers Sale on Tuesday and Wednesday. Use the code THANKYOU21 for additional savings at checkout on every store, including Mis Clases Locas! If you are like me at this point in this crazy year you are in survival mode. Do yourself a favor and buy yourself sanity and some time. It is also a great opportunity to get resources on sale to be able to plan during the summer. (This is typically the last site-wide sale until August). I know the decision fatigue is real this time of year, so to help you out, here is what I would put in a school purchase order to start next year with confidence and save your time and sanity.
Must-Haves for Planning the 21-22 School Year
What we know about next school year is everything will still have to be flexible and fluid. (The worst word ever to describe any situation). This year, I posted everything digitally on Google Classroom, so any time someone is gone, everything is ready to go. Planning for mostly digital resources, with a mix of In-person activities will be the way to go.
Mega Bundle High-Frequency Resources is my number 1 suggested resource. It has every Super 7 & Sweet 16 resource for both virtual & in-person instruction. Learn more about how to use these resources in this blog post. If you are just teaching Spanish 1, the Super 7 present bundle would be perfect.
Regular routines keep everyone sane and help students to know what to expect every day of class. By using editable Google Slides these routines can stay the same in person, hybrid or virtual if needed.
Para Empezar 2021 is my number 1 suggestion to keep each day of the school year consistent in every single level you teach. Get students engaged right away with my newest class starters & give yourself the much-needed first 5 minutes for administrative tasks.
Solid Back to School
What to do the first week of Spanish class every year is a mental struggle. I have saved you the mental load with the most popular first-day activities that are engaging and teacher-tested.
Back to School Mega Bundle includes solid plans for the first couple of weeks in every level you teach. Or if you just want the first week of school logistics, the original Back to School Bundle gives a solid foundation of proficiency, syllabus, parent newsletter, lesson planning, and more.
If this year taught us anything, it is that we NEED to schedule breaks for our own mental health.
Movie Guide Bundle will give you appropriate, culture-rich movie guides to full out at a moment’s notice. Vacation sub plans? Check. Emergency Sub plans? Check. Mama needs a couple of days to grade everything and keep y’all entertained. Check. Learn more about the included film in this blog post.
Make Time for JOY!
Other teachers have agreed with me that the school year did not have the spark of years past. Next school year, let’s try and bring some joy back!
In my classes, joy is usually brought by laughter and music. Here are my favorite bundles of joy.
- Hispanic Heritage Month song Bundle
- Afro-latinx song bundle
- Música miércoles Growing Bundle
- Spring Music Bracket Bundle
