"Just one game, they said, and started to play- that was yesterday." - Chinese Proverb
My bright and eager-to-learn Spanish students are realizing the amazing opportunities open to them through the acquisition of a second language and its culture!
I am a Spanish teacher for grades 9-12 in a low-income, high poverty, public junior/senior high school in Pennsylvania. Half of our student population are on free or reduced-price lunch. My students thrive from interactive and engaging activities that step away from the "traditional." Our school does not have the financial surplus to purchase resources that would enhance student learning in alternative and creative ways, which I believe is critical for true, long term learning.
In my classroom I have created an immersive environment where only Spanish is being spoken from the time the students walk in the classroom until the time they walk out. On nearly a daily basis we hold “Cafe Español,” or Spanish Cafe time, where the students get together in pairs or small groups and talk or chat only in Spanish as if in a cafe in Spain.
I would like to provide various board games and other activities for my students to play in the classroom while having these natural conversations.
The goal is to create a more engaging, interactive classroom environment where they are involved doing tasks that facilitate realistic discussion in Spanish. Being able to provide these games to use will help create a dynamic classroom where the students are working at the highest levels (speaking only in Spanish) while doing interactive, fun activities.
Being provided with these resources will help to enhance the learning environment I have created in the classroom and will provide students with more opportunities to USE the language in authentic ways with their classmates. They will then continue to develop and acquire Spanish proficiency for their lives now and for their futures.
Please help me make this a reality for my students! Muchisimas gracias!
