¿Cómo se dice en inglés/español? How do you say it in English/Spanish? (I taught ¿Qué quiere decir…? What does…mean? before, and they always got it confused with ¿Cómo se dice…?, so I would suggest that it is just easier to teach the one.)
Gracias Thank you
De nada You’re welcome

Tengo una pregunta I have a question
(No) Estoy listo/a. I am (not) ready.
¿Lo entrego? Do I turn it in?
¿A qué hora termina la clase? When does class end?
On a whiteboard I laminated signs that say: Español 1 (Spanish 1), Español 2 (Spanish 2), la agenda (Agenda), la tarea (homework), el objetivo (objective), Puedo (I can). Each day I would then change the information so that students knew what would be happening. Some students would look at the board before class began, but I would also go through and explain in Spanish what was written on the board.
