I stopped by Dollar General the other day and walked through their Christmas aisle, and within two hours I had changed the green sweater I was wearing that day to this pretty Christmas sweater! I've got problems, I know!
But I think it's going to be a great motivator for my students during the last week before Christmas break. I am always looking for new ways to motivate my immersion students to ONLY speak Spanish.
So, what I think I'm going to do is:
1) Write the phrase "Feliz Navidad" on the board.
2) Hang up my ugly sweater somewhere in the front of the room.
3) Erase a letter every time I hear English.
4) If my students still have a letter remaining by Thursday afternoon, I will be sporting my ugly Christmas sweater on Friday.
What do you think? If you find dressing up fun, I'm sure you'll love this idea. And of course there are a million goals you could set for your class to reach in order to see you wear your Christmas sweater.
