What do you do when you need a sub? What kinds of plans work best for subs in the Spanish classroom? I have needed subs lately and have found it hard to plan lessons that aren’t just busy work.

Culture— review—conjugation practice, but at the end of the day it depends on if your sub wants to work your plans or if they believe they can’t because they “don’t know Spanish!”
I have gone through detailed directions, made sample copies and nothing gets done. Now I leave the week’s work on Google Classroom with youtube video explaining what we are working on or with enrichment activities. At the end of the day, no one is going to take your place, so lock down your valuables( so kids don’t get in it) and plan a simple day!

What's the best way to help a student catch up after a while away from school? I have a student who missed 3 months (Aug-Nov) whose coming back next week and I feel like a packet to take home just isn't enough. We're almost two lessons ahead of where we were, and I don't know how they're going to catch up while staying on track with what we're learning right now.

Organization is critical for classroom management. Try assembling units into Google Slides with links to ppts, activities, etc. Color code them according to the rainbow: Unit 1 red, Unit 2 orange etc. It takes a minute at first but the payoff is a one click upload for next year! PS I use the same color code system with felt tip pens to grade my classes: 1st hr red, 2nd hr orange etc.

Anyone ever been in a similar situation or have some advice on how we can best support the student?

Additional Posts in Secondary Spanish Teachers

Hi everyone. My high school is going to be adapting a hybrid model at the start of the school year. I plan to take a digital approach to everything. I have plenty of activities from the past that involve interaction and conversation in the target language, but I was wondering if anyone has some great digital or distance learning activities or ideas to share?

In the hallway having a conversation in Spanish with another Spanish teacher, a staff member shouts out to us, “speak English, this is America.” I stopped and asked her “really?” She said “I don’t understand it,” to which I said, “we weren’t talking to you, you don’t need to understand.” To make it worse, this is the second time she has said this to me. What could I say next time so she never tells me this again? I heard she has told other kids this too, we have a very high ESL population…
