There was a big smile on her face.
She proudly told me she had the copies she needed for the first class of the new year.
She was ready.
That means she wouldn’t need to plan during the holiday.
She wouldn’t need to worry about teaching or school.
That’s a feeling we’d like all teachers to have.
So here are the resources you need for that first class in January.
Just pick the one that suits you better!
1 Los Reyes Magos (Spanish 1)
Christmas season might be over in January where you live, but not in the Spanish-speaking countries.
El Día de Reyes (6 January) is a big celebration, and we’d like your students to know it well.
In this short and fun lesson, we explain the main similarities and differences between Santa and The Three Wise Men.
2 ¿Dígame? Los propósitos de año nuevo (Spanish 1 and up)
I was stunned the first time I used this lesson in my classes.
Many of my students’ main resolution for the new year was to spend less time playing video games.
What are your students goals?
Find it out using these activities and 6-minute video.
3 El primer día de clase (Spanish 1)
The video of this lesson describes what many of your students experience on the first day of school after the Christmas break.
It’s cold and dark when they get up, and they have to go back to school, back to the routine.
A great lesson to talk about that situation and review vocabulary and expressions about school.
Explore those three lessons, make your choice and you’ll have everything you need for your first classes of the year.
You should be smiling as my colleague Lisa was.
Because you’re ready, you don’t need to plan during the holiday or worry about school.
¡Feliz año nuevo!
