Quick Tip: I CAN statements for Spanish class

Quick Tip: I CAN statements for Spanish class - Mis Clases Locas

Why hello there!

I am sorry I have been MIA on the blog, but as you know the first weeks of school are a whirlwind of to do lists, additional meetings, and my own extra needy kids who just can't hang after 9 hours of day care. On top of the first week of school, it was time for two big birthdays in my house. My first day of school baby from last year is now ONE, plus he was born on my husband's birthday. This means I was trying to get ready for hosing a birthday party at my house, which meant shoving everything in cupboards and frantically cleaning during their nap immediately before the party (which had the theme of "Target Dollar Spot Birthday"). To top it off my little guys molars are coming in, so he likes to scream for a good solid hour around 3am each night. Let's just say we are all aboard the hot mess express eating leftover pizza from the party all week for dinner and trying to figure out how to function as a family with mama back at school. Did I mention my hubby was also chosen for the jury at jury duty this week?!

OK enough about me. Time to share just a super quick tip that has helped me be more organized this year and saves me time. I promise I have more posts in the works in my brain, but I just need time to do them. I posted the photo below on Instagram this week (@SraWienhold) and got quite a few questions about my "I can" statement posters, which are along the top of the board in pink.

Weekend Talk: 5 Ways to Mix it Up

I mentioned in my post about planning for upper level classes, that we typically start Mondays with a "Weekend Talk" or "Weekend Chat." I had heard about doing this for years in the CI circles, but never seemed to find time to do it. What is interesting is I have always been a #deptof1 so when I can not find time for something it is just me, myself and I putting tight requirements on pacing and curriculum. I am not sure why I felt the need to rush into the week full force and how I could not "find time" to spend a few minutes casually chatting in Spanish about what the students are thinking about. 

What do you want to talk about and think about on Monday? Your weekend! 
Do I want to make class interesting and relevant? YES! 
So I guess I should let us all spend some time talking about what we did over our weekend (or break).

Spanish Classroom Library Tour 2017


Spanish Classroom Library Tour 2017 - Mis Clases Locas


After posting a picture of this year's Spanish classroom library, I got a lot of questions. So I decided it was worthy of a blog post to show you some more pictures, help you start your own library, as well as explain how we use this class library year round.

Lista lunes - Back to Spanish 2017

It has been quite a while since I did a lista lunes post! I decided with the crazy back to school season, it would be helpful for you to have all of my back to school posts organized in one place.

La Tomatina: Mini Unit to Start Spanish Class

Are you looking for an engaging topic to start your school year in Spanish class? How about a festival where people literally have a giant food fight with tomatoes? La Tomatina is a yearly event that takes place in Buñol, Spain at 11:00am on the last Wednesday of August. For me, this falls during the first full week of school. I already decided when I planned out my tentative year curriculum that I would start the year with a Tomatina mini unit in Spanish 2. Since then I decided that Spanish 3 will also join the fun and do the unit as well. (I was waiting to see if anyone who took my Culture & Civilization Spanish 1+ would be staying with Spanish 3, since that class already did this unit). As a #deptof1 any time that I can overlap plans for levels and just differentiate, it really helps lighten the planning load. For those of you who have been following my back to school posts and saw my 1st weeks of Spanish 1, here are my 1st weeks plans for Spanish 2 & 3.  

My 1st 2 weeks of Spanish 2 & 3 are as follows:
