5 Ways to use Dance in any classroom

The fourth post ever on Mis Clases Locas was about my favorite weekly classroom tradition baile viernes, where we start class on Friday with dance. It was also the most popular post of 2014. It seems that many people still want more ideas of how to Get your Spanish Class Moving, by the popularity of this post as well. Since I get a lot of questions about dancing in class, I decided it was time for an update. Here are five ways to utilize dance in any classroom, as well as some frequently asked questions.

Planing to teach El Ekeko (e course)

Thanks to the the generous Fluency Matters 12 days of Christmas giveaway, I am going to once again adjust this year's curriculum plan. (One of my many perks as a #deptof1). I won a set of the newer El Ekeko e course by Katie Baker. This novel came out right after I made my big curriculum purchase a few years ago, and I am been wanting to teach it.

1st Day Back From Winter Break Plans for all levels of Spanish

Happy New Year amig@s! I hope you have enjoyed your break. I watched season 2 of Chicas de Cable as well as am watching Gran Hotel (again!) on Netflix, spent quality time with my little family, and celebrated the life of my spit fire Grandma with my extended family. At 93, she and my Grandpa were only one month away from reaching the milestone of 70 years of marriage. In honor of Grandma, this year it is my goal to make my husband a priority. She had six kids in eight years, yet they made date night a weekly tradition, called each other "lovebird" and kissed in front of everyone every chance they got. 

We are back at school on Wednesday the 3rd and have students on Thursday the 4th. With that strange two day week, my plan is to ease into the new year talking about what students are dying to discuss, their break! To make things easy on myself and to have a work free break, I already have my first week back plans on my desk with copies made. Similar to my first day of school plan, I am adapting the same basic activity across all levels. If you are looking for a idea of something that you can adapt for all levels you teach, check out my plans below. (Or here is a full week of 1st week plans from two years ago).
