Maestro Miércoles – How To Talk About Classroom Rules in Spanish

This Maestro Miércoles lesson focuses on the Spanish vocabulary you need in order to talk about classroom rules and expectations with your students and their families:  LAS REGLAS DE LA CLASE.

Here is the Classroom Rules in Spanish lesson I taught to the Facebook group:

3 main ways to express this in Spanish

  • Reglas de la clase 
  • Normas de la clase 
  • Expectativas de la clase 

So, what are your expectativas de la clase that you spend time communicating to your students and their families and training your students to follow at the beginning of each year?

  • Behavior expectations – comportamiento 
  • Personal responsibility – responsabilidad personal 

Su reto profesional → usar este vocabulario esta semana cuando con sus estudiantes y los papás

Las Reglas de Comportamiento: What student should not do

Se prohíbe + infinitivo  It’s prohibited + Infinitive
Usar el teléfono celular en la clase  To use cell phone in class
Faltarle el respeto a otros  To show a lack of respect for others
Desobedecer las reglas de la escuela  To disobey school rules

Note: You might not have caught it, but I actually mispronounced “prohíbe” in Spanish during the lesson. I added a sound for the letter “h” in Spanish. Remember the “h” is always silent in Spanish – and unlearning its pronunciation is tricky even for us pros!

I packaged all of this into easily downloadable .pdf notes– Get your copy for free today!
