Back to school!

I am officially back to work after a wonderful holiday with my family in France and in Spain. It has actually been more than a week that I am back to school but it has been a shock to the system (getting back to the routine after more than a year of maternity leave!). That is mainly why I have not blogged for a while and also because I was on holidays touring Europe.

The main big thing for me this school year is that I have my own classroom (yeah!) which means that I can decorate it the way I want:

I decided to put classroom instructions and school objects for the start of the school year. I also went for a U-shape or square shape. That way, I can move around freely to check students’ work and I can also stand in the center of the classroom to tell stories or to do choral repetitions of key words and structures. At first I was not use to it, so I tended to stand near to my desk but I try to remind myself to move and stand in the middle!


I also tried to display objects which remind of Spain or the Hispanic culture:

My dear man printed the bull with his 3d-printer as well a the cup to hold my pens!
I hope to post a lot of resources and ideas I use in my Spanish lessons. Watch this space!

What about you? How does your classroom look like?

  1. Bonjour.
    C’est très sympa de nous montrer ta salle. Disposer les tables en U est un plus pour les interactions orales c’est sûr. Encore ne faut-il pas avoir 30 élèves.
    Le porte-crayons est superbe.
    Bon courage pour ce retour.
    À plus.
