The hardest part of any language class? Getting started!
Believe it or not, the first day can make or break your entire year of teaching! Therefore, the first day activities and helpful tips are so important to any curriculum.
That’s why I now offer the First Day of any Curriculum as a stand-alone product, so you can better prepare for a successful start.
Why Are First Day Activities & Advice So Important?
The first day of Spanish is quickly approaching and this sinking feeling in your belly is growing each day.
In fact, you are starting to freak out.
What will you do when all those little children are looking at you expecting something new and exciting to do?
Will you be fun enough? And what will you teach them?
It’s true… JUST ONE DAY can set the tone for your whole session. Start on good footing and you’ll know you can do it. Start on bad footing and you’ll feel like a prisoner completing a sentence – your mind won’t be in class, it will be on the exit door!
That’s why it’s crucial to have a plan for success, with a curriculum that is proven to be effective in teaching language to children… and is, most of all, fun!
What Is Included in The Red Hen’s First Day?
The First Day is literally the first day of The Little Red Hen Lesson Plan Unit, all 35 pages of it (the entire unit has 197 pages).*
That includes the entire introduction, which tells you exactly how to use my products and includes valuable first day activities and tips to ensure your success as a teaching and language entrepreneur. It’s like getting a personal coaching session from Ana Lomba!
*Be aware that the First Day does not include the ToonFlips and the other materials included in The Little Red Hen Curriculum Set.
Why Is the First Day So Long?
Because it’s NOT just a bunch of activities put together haphazardly. The First Day also includes very detailed explanations, so that you are pretty clear about the role that each activity plays in advancing your students’ Spanish skills.
You can learn a lot just by looking at the first day.
