I have the same nightmare every year. It's the first day of school, there is a classroom of new students staring at me, and I am completely unprepared. It's like I went to school that day and didn't know I had to teach. And so I teach a lesson on "¿cómo te llamas?" and I totally wing it. And I look completely unprepared in front of a whole classroom of students. I don't like winging anything, so this nightmare fills me with anxiety. Can you imagine teaching a lesson without any prep? I don't even like thinking about it.
There are two ebooks that have just come out, both of which will help Spanish teachers get prepared for the year! Avoid that back to school nightmare and maybe also peruse these ebooks at one of those faculty meetings. You have to do something while listening to ELA Common Core Standards, right?
This Spanish ebook includes more than 20 Spanish teachers of all grade levels from TpT. It is a freebie in The World Language Cafe's store. There are ice breaker activities, review games for upper-level classes, classroom signs, and even a song!
Download both Back to School ebooks and enjoy the abundance of resources! I hope this makes the Back to School season just a little bit smoother!
