Greet Them at the Door

Posted by Kara Parker on July 19, 2017 in 1 Planning, Class Decor, Class Routines, First Days

Thinking about decorating your classroom or cart? Or using Target Language from day 1? We have something that will do both! It’s a post from the past and we still love it, so we gave it a fresh update for the new year. We hope you ♥love♥ today’s #free #DailyDownload!

Click Spanish or French for the FREE download.

Here’s how it goes…

* Download/print the posters.

* Hang the greetings on the wall in the hallway.

* Hang the goodbyes on the wall inside the classroom.

* When students enter, stand outside and greet them. The rule is that they cannot use the same greeting that is used with them. Eventually have students be the greeter instead of you.

* Repeat when they leave using the goodbye phrases.

* Add more phrases as the year continues that relate to your lessons. So if you are learning about Costa Rica, add “Pura Vida.” Add “Buen Provecho” during a food unit for classes during lunch. Let your students add some too. Original post: Greetings and Goodbyes. This idea was originally seen in Sra. Peña’s room. Thanks Kim for sharing your idea!

How will you use these signs? We love seeing pics!

    I tried to download the greetings and goodbye signs, but I could not find out where to download them. Any help for a not so “techie” Spanish teacher would be helpful. Thanks!
