Classroom commands are phrases used by teachers to help ensure a smooth and efficient learning environment. They can range from simple requests such as ‘por favor levanta tu mano si quieres decir algo’ (please raise your hand if you want to say something) to more complex tasks such as ‘pon las palabras en orden alfabetico’ (put the words in alphabetical order).
For students learning Spanish, teachers should begin introducing basic classroom commands like these at the beginning of the courses and then continue teaching more advanced commands as their Spanish proficiency grows.
Below is a ready-made mini-lesson plan and ID practice sheet to teach classroom commands such as:
levanta la mano
baja la mano
abre el libro (en la página…)
mira el video
escoge / selecciona
saca una hoja de papel
