2020. Just writing that is a whole mood. This is the year nothing really went as we expected. It is the year that brought me to the lowest points in my career, while also allowing for a lot of learning and growing. 

This past year has been the slowest one yet on the blog. 39 posts were published, but if you noticed many were just updated previous posts. With nearing on 500 total posts, I have realized that sometimes my limited time is more efficiently used updating outdated older material, than starting from scratch. 

Also, now besides this blog, social media is often the place for my new ideas, since the idea of putting it into a blog post is much more daunting. If you want to keep up to date with what I post, follow on FacebookInstagram and Twitter, as well as sign up for the Mis Clases Locas newsletter. 

This year brought only 15 brand new blog posts. Most deal with virtual or hybrid teaching (shocker!). While many older posts are still pretty popular, below are the top 6 most viewed of the new posts. (my favorite number)

First weeks of Spanish class with hybrid learning in a socially distanced classroom. Back to school in 2020 teaching with masks, virtually, and socially distancing in a CI Spanish classroom. Plus, answers to frequently asked questions about socially distancing, free reading, and more in socially distanced, in person, hybrid Spanish class.

Blooket a fresh, new online game to add to your toolbelt. If your students enjoy GimKit, they will love Blooket in person, hybrid or virtual. This new game keeps getting better and better with new modes being added all of the time. Super easy to set up and play in any way you are teaching right now.

How to start Spanish 1 online with distance learning. This post details the high frequency verb unit for novice Spanish students who have never had Spanish before, or as a review for those who have. Plus now I have added a bunch more similar units for imperfect, preterit and Sweet 16 present after the overwhelming positive response to this original unit.

Distance learning confessions of a teacher mom during COVID-19 quarantine. Just a teacher keeping it real while teaching and being a mom from home. (This post was published in April during quarantine, but most is still spot on relatable).

5 Tech tools for Spanish Class. My favorite Spanish class technology resources and website for schools with computer or device access. These tech tools are especially useful for distance learning & 1:1 situations to avoid Comprehensible Input teacher burnout. Funny enough, I originally wrote this post in January pre pandemic and had no idea how relevant this online tech tools would become in 2020! It was updated over the summer with more distance learning modifications as well.





Activities to Save You Time
If you are still looking for activities this month, I have a holiday resources round up post, which can be found here or a bundle of all my my holiday resources here.  Below are resources that you can use the next couple of weeks, or right after break, that require no prep and can save a little bit of your sanity.
  • Find Someone Who - Pre holiday break - future - This is a perfect one day activity to talk about plans over break in the future tense. It is especially good, if you are trying to avoid cultural celebrations and instead just focus on your students talking about their lives. 
  • Plate Sketch Game - holiday edition - A fun holiday plate sketch game the day before break, perfect if you have a short class or just some extra time. This could be done virtually as well!
  • Para Empezar - Winter Holidays - If you want to add a little bit each day, here are 3 weeks of daily class starters or brain breaks, that could also be used to fill a couple class periods. 
  • Find Someone Who - POST holiday break - past - This is a perfect one day activity to talk about what people did over break. Print it before break, have it on your desk & do not worry about what to do when you get back! OR use the TPT digtal overlay to have students complete on their computers. A great way to make sure you can ENJOY your break! For Spanish 1 or novice students without much past tense knowledge, I have a versions just using one verb: fuiste find someone who & fuiste question cards.
