SHARE-a-thon Question #5 by Megan Smith | Apr 20, 2012 | Sub Plans, Teacher Talk | 8 comments8 Comments teachermrw on April 20, 2012 at 11:13 am I like to use webquests that pertain to some cultural aspect of the Spanish-speaking world. With a bit of digging on the ‘Net, I’ve found some good ones. Reply Heather Witten on April 20, 2012 at 11:55 am I have flipped my class, so I never have to worry about sub plans! 😉 The students always know what they need to do and have access to all the lectures, listenings, etc to make it happen. It rocks! Reply Sandi on April 20, 2012 at 1:58 pm What does it mean, that you have “flipped” your class? Sounds cool, but I’ve never heard the expression… Reply Heather Witten on April 21, 2012 at 2:39 pm I don’t lecture in class anymore. The students watch the grammar lectures outside of class and practice grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening in class. If you are interested, check out my blog! If you click on my name it will take you there! Reply JenniferM on April 20, 2012 at 5:29 pm Videos or webquests about Spanish-speaking countries, if it’s just for a day. Vocab practice with Bingo / Go Fish / Memory / Flyswatters / other games the students are familiar with work perfectly also.If a “catch-all” lesson like that just isn’t a good option for some reason or if I have to be out for more than just a day, I’ve had good luck with screencasting short videos (provided that it’s not a last-minute absence!) so I can still show and tell the students what to do and the sub just has to play the video and then let the kids get to work! Reply Chelsea on April 20, 2012 at 7:14 pm If I am gone, I leave supplies for drawing. The kids have the draw an illustration using at least 10 of our vocabulary words for the current unit, and they have to label it in Spanish. They get to be creative, and I get new pictures to display on my walls! Reply Jacki Morris (@profeguerita) on April 21, 2012 at 8:46 am I like to take longish podcasts like Notes in Spanish, and make a question list about it. That way they are getting that valuable imput! And the sub ususally likes it since they are forced to be quiet to hear the answers. Reply Maris on April 22, 2012 at 10:04 am I just saw this link on another website. It lists some good ideas! http://www.supersubstituteteachers.com/currbased.htm ReplyLeave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam. Learn how your comment data is processed.
