Zoom burnout is real! After I completed my 3rd week teaching online, one of the things that made me tired the most was the amount of time I was spending in front of a computer every day. Some of my students were not only attending our Zoom classes but also having to complete assignments afterwards. One of the things I appreciate is when my own kids get assignments from their teachers that invite them to be creative and away from the computer. With that in mind, I wanted to think of ideas children can do at home to a least get them to think in Spanish a bit.
Here are some off-screen activities you can recommend your students do at home. Click HERE to download them all:
- Label the rooms in the house.
- Classify objects by color
- Group objects by number
- Play a counting game in Spanish.
- Play hopscotch naming things in Spanish. If there is not chalk available, make a small hopscotch on a piece of paper to play with your fingers. Time each person who plays it and see who can do it fastest.
- Read a story to your pet or plush toy.
- Put greetings on the door, just like many teachers do in their classrooms.
- Play a memory game with animal flashcards.
- Play a guessing game
- Sing a favorite song in Spanish
