Yesterday, I decided on a new way to call on students. We were practicing numbers, so I gave each student a telephone number from Spain. (I picked mostly fast food restaurants.) Then, I would read a pair of numbers. Each pair came to the front and did a quick exchange of their birthday in Spanish. It was great to continue to practice numbers in a new way. Plus, it was interesting for students to see what a phone number would look like in Spain. I would also add that I only teach 10 students. If you have a larger class, you could call two to three pairs a class. It would get tiresome to listen to 15 of these exchanges- at five, we were bordering on too long. Do you use other ways to call on students that pertain to your unit?
