Behavior Reward Strategy for Spanish as a Second Language

I use the story of a little mouse and it's friends called "Veo, veo ¿Un ratón?" By Guido Van Genechten to organize your class by teams. These teams will work together to get points by following the rules and class expectations. This will not only help them to build relationships and work together but also learn vocabulary starting from the first day. I hope you like it. Check the following video to see how to use this strategy in your classroom.

Calendar - Teaching how to write and say dates in Spanish.

Let's learn how to say and write the date properly in Spanish. This chart has an explanatory video you can use to get an idea of how I use it to teach the date.


1. Practice daily the correct pronunciation of the words during your morning routine.

2. You can print it in a bigger size for your students to be able to see it and recognize the order of how to write the date in Spanish.

3. Choose a different student every day to make them participate in the activity.

4. Students should write the date daily to learn how to write the vocabulary.

I took the beginning part of the song and added some arm movements. I use this song during almost every lesson while I add more activities and vocabulary to make it more challenging every day. Take a look at the video to see some of the activities that I implement during my lessons.

Parts of the face

Let's teach about the different parts of the face with this activity. In the beginning, I made this video for my students to practice their Spanish vocabulary related to the parts of the face, but this video may be helpful for you as a teacher as well. Here you will find an idea of one of the activities I use to introduce the vocabulary about the parts of the face in Spanish. This activity is done in a ludic way by drawing myself while I make emphasis on the pronunciation, the words, and the construction of simple sentences. I hope you like it and I hope it is useful for you during your Spanish lessons.
