• Pull out laminated character cards to assign seats at the door. (Currently in French and Spanish–send me translations for other languages and I will add them into the file!)
  • Photocopy name card template onto cardstock; enough for each student to have one.
  • Have markers available for name card writing–only dark colors that can be easily seen from across the room!
  • Have camera or iPhone ready to take students’ pictures, holding their name cards, so that I can learn names FAST!
  • Photocopy syllabus
  • Black and blue dry-erase markers for writing new vocabulary on the board
  • Make sure the projector works to avoid a train wreck!
  • Spanish I: Make sure the Los pollitos dicen song and powerpoint are on the computer
  • Spanish II: Make sure the ¿En quién te hace pensar? powerpoint is on the computer and ready to go

  1. I love these! And I’m excited to use them, but I think there is a mistake in the French. I believe unicorn or “la licorne.” I would also, love the template so that I could change this. Thanks so much for all of the great ideas!

  2. Also, I meant to post this on the character cards blog entry. I’m not doing too well with technology today, I’m sorry.
