PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Yep, the classroom honeymoon is definitely over as we wind up our winter!
As some students become comfortable, their manners relax and they forget to use the appropriate register with their teachers.

While most of my Spanish videos are for transitions, some are for using as direct instruction in social skills; they address my pet peeves!
Pet Peeve #1 Students need to learn to work graciously with random partners.
Pet Peeve #2 Students need to actively look out for new students to our class and building.
Pet Peeve #3 Students need to use the appropriate register with teachers in e-mail.

What triggered Pet Peeve #3? Twice this year I have received e-mails via our grading program. Unfortunately, the program does not forward the sender’s name. This results in students sending me an e-mail as if they were a text message to a peer.
• No salutation
• No signature
• No punctuation
• No context – “you gave me an F on the homework but I was absent.” (The grading program does this whenever a grade is missing.) “You marked me absent but I was in a team activity.”

Absent basic manners, the e-mails sound harsh. So I wrote a song and made a video to show the students how to e-mail me as pracitce for communicating with their future employers. It includes opening and ending expressions and the reminder to use please and thank you.

I’ve noticed that music creates a super-path to long term memory and I hope the message in this video becomes part of students’ life-long tool-kit for addressing adults with the appropriate register. This version is with a Female Teacher.
