For an engaging midterm exam review for Spanish class, consider using station-based activities, choice boards, and games. With station-based reviews, students complete activities at designated areas, fostering diverse learning. Choice boards offer students an array of linked activities they can select from, promoting critical thinking skills. Games, such as ‘The Unfair Game’ or ‘Golf,’ enhance engagement and make learning fun while also ensuring comprehensive revision.
Does your curriculum require that students memorize vocabulary? Vocabulary study checks in Spanish are a great way to keep your students on track!
I realize that many districts are moving away from vocab lists, prescribed themes and grammar and the like. But I also really do believe that students need to have high frequency words in a place where they can easily access them when needed. Vocabulary study checks are a quick and easy way to make sure students are memorizing key vocabulary.
Does your school do benchmarks for Spanish classes? Our school did them pre-Covid, but we have not given benchmarks for the last two years. To be honest, our team has really struggled with benchmarking, and this post is perhaps a reflection and call for ideas and comments.
