Happy New Year! I hope that everyone’s 2014 is off to a wonderful start. It is always tricky to get back in the swing of things after a nice long holiday break. I normally start with an easy warm-up to remind them that they DO remember something from the first trimester. I use Constantinople for my warm-up many times. This year, I plan on using these table topics in Spanish for my Spanish 2 class. The theme is memories, and everyone loves reminiscing about the previous year. These could easily be oral or written. There are a lot of different options, so you could give students choices. Below are a list of other table topics that you could use. In March, they write about making a list for different topics. I plan on using these for Spanish 1.
