Stations day just might be the best day of any unit – students get to move around the room to learning centers, differentiate by interest or learning style, work in groups, and get meaningful Spanish practice. It can take a bit of preparation, but once it’s all set up, it becomes a day when the students are actively working and you can get a chance to breathe. Stations are also a go-to plan for substitute teacher lesson plans, including
A jigsaw puzzle, which takes about 5 minutes
A circle puzzle, which takes about 10 minutes
A crossword puzzle, which takes about 5 minutes
A rainbow reading, which takes about 20 minutes
A sentence mixer, which takes about 10 minutes
And task cards, which take 5-20 minutes
Plus Pepe and Paula readings as a faster alternative to the rainbow reading
Stations come complete with an instruction sheet to guide students through the stations. I’ve also included an editable version and suggestions for how to switch the instructions if you are leaving these stations as sub plans. I’ve also included answer keys to help you or a substitute.
These are also available in leveled bundles:
This product is part of my collection on the distinction between preterite and imperfect in Spanish. There are separate collections for preterite conjugation and imperfect conjugation as well. I aim to keep vocabulary as neutral as possible, and while PDF products are not editable, products sold as ZIP files include editable files so you can add unit-specific vocabulary.
This product is also included in my Preterite Vs Imperfect Bundle.
Stations focus primarily on the ACTFL language comparison, interpersonal communication, and interpretive communication standards.
Going paperless? You can print/laminate the sentence cards, task cards, and puzzles and have students submit their answers to you electronically. You can also send the crossword puzzle to your students electronically and use the Notability app to add their answers.
