In many classes Música miércoles & baile viernes are many students' favorite days of the week.


    Música miércoles (music Wednesday) is starting class by watching a music video (or lyrics video for those with inappropriate videos) of a current or classic song in Spanish and then answering questions or talking about it in Spanish. 


    In my first year of teaching, one of my biggest successes was música miércoles. Because of this tradition, many students’ favorite day of the week became Wednesday. Each week students would enter saying “Yeah, we get to listen to music today!” “Whooo, música miércoles!” I think this is because many students enjoy listening to music, and think they get to “waste” class time doing so. What they do not realize is this “waste” has the following benefits to them.


    • Listening to the Spanish language through song
    • Exposing them to new genres and artists of Spanish speaking music
    • Learning the geography of where the artists are from
    • Hearing different accents and slang from various parts of the world
    • Getting catchy music stuck in their head 
    • Cultivating an interest in new music, enough to start their own Spanish Spotify playlist at home
    • Bringing up cultural similarities and differences
    • Making learning Spanish fun
    • Having students excited to come to Spanish class


    If you have active classes that need movement and breaks, dance videos are perfect. It can start class on Friday as a weekly event known as baile viernes, or be used as a much-needed movement break any day of the week. It is especially important if you teach block schedules. It helps build a positive classroom community as well.


    How do you get high schoolers to dance in class you ask? First and foremost as the teacher sets the example. You can make a fool of yourself learning the dances with them. Sometimes we might try a song and partway through the students decide they are over it. This is fine & usually because it is too hard, so you can quickly change to their favorite by request. I have had classes that were never as into dancing, which is fine. Finally, I have found it is a great way to get those Friday wiggles out at the beginning of class. This is especially important on game days and before long weekends.

    **You must have access to Youtube & the Internet to play the videos
