At the start of my teaching career, I had students pick Spanish names, solely because I liked doing it when I was in Spanish. It was a way to make language learning fun, so we tried it. Eleven years down the road, and the activity has become so much more than that, this blog post addresses, what can be in a "name".
Why give students Spanish nicknames?
I am in my 11th year teaching in Saline. I've taught: 3rd grade, 5th grade, Spanish/French/German Intro, Quest, Middle School Spanish, and Elementary Spanish.
