Brain Teachers! How do you introduce your rules in Spanish class. Do you use
only Spanish? A little bit of English? English? This will be my first year
using WBT. I am also trying to translate "Teach, OK" , "Mighty
Groan" and "Mighty Oh Yeah." Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
Have an awesome school year!"
Speedy : I love WBT! I keep the rules in English so that there are no excuses
for not following them. I do Clase, clase - sí, si, Espejo, Enseña, and Cambia. For the scoreboard they do
¡OH Sí! and
also did the air punctuation (well sometimes and only in 1st grade but they
loved it and I need to remember to do it more.) Here is a link to a few blog
entries where I outline how I use WBT in my classroom. http://senoraspeedy.blogspot.com/2013/12/whole-brain-teaching-part-one.html
for Early and Elementary Spanish Teachers Wow! This is awesome! Thanks for
sharing. I started using WTB a little last year and it worked great. I plan to
start with WTB from day zero. I am still reading the book.
have pictures next to my rules which are written in Spanish. I try to keep
everything in the TL.
Christina: I have them in Spanish too!! Love WBT!
Roxanne:We say the rules in Spanish and have hand
gestures that accompany them. My partner teacher, who teaches in English, does
them I'm English making sure to use the same hand gestures.
This is great!
I have the rules posted in Spanish! I will go over them in English for the
first weeks until they get the hang of them
Many thanks, Señora
Speedy...I'm moving from high school to Kindergarten (Spanish immersion) and I
was wondering how to introduce WBT and in which language!!
teach Spanish Immersion too. I have my wbt rules posted in Spanish. At the
beginning of the year we go over the rules every day in the target language. I
have the posters already made in TpT in Spanish. Good luck!
Speedy:Tabitha - I think you could
easily do the rules in Spanish if you are immersion. I am in the Specials
rotation so I don't see my students often enough for me to feel comfortable
doing them in Spanish. Although by the end of the year I did have students
asking how to say them in Spanish so I might start in English and transition to
Spanish later on in the year.
Mundo de Pepita I
have the rules posted in Spanish, along with all our other procedures. Like
Kimberly, we go over them in English and Spanish at the beginning of the year
so everyone is clear and by the end of Sept I've transitioned over to only
Spanish. (I teach in a Specials rotation like Señora Speedy). For getting their attention
when I need it, I use the call and response 'Nachos', 'Salsa'. I would also
note I teach using Responsive Classroom, so lots of modeling and reinforcing
throughout the year.
What do the rules look like in your classrooms? This is only my second year
teaching Spanish in the elementary classroom.
