In conjunction with one of my recent assignments, which students seemed to enjoy, I decided to put up a new bulletin board on the theme of music. I play música quite a bit in my classes and dedicating a tablón de anuncios was something I’ve been thinking about for some time.
I used the CD album booklets as well as articles and pictures from magazines that I’ve collected over the year. If your school library has a subscription to People En Español, that’s a good place to start. I also bought some pop-culture Spanish posters drawn by MartinMRochaArt.com including this Adele poster, which students loved! Many students also enjoyed the Beatles posters.
I then made a poster asking students ¿Qué es tu canción favorita?” with a column for Spanish songs and English songs. It allows students to share their own interests and allows them to connect their world with the Spanish speaking side. I hung this poster right next to the bulletin board. Students are sure to be checking this out before class to see what type of music their peers listen to.
We now have available for purchase this Juanes poster at SpanishTeacherShop.com: La música es el lenguaje universal.
