You know I love daily routines, and our weekly routine of Música Miércoles is my favorite! Allison from Mis Clases Locas has a great resource for a song of the day featuring female artists or groups with lead female singers!
Gallery walks are one of my favorite things to do with my students. They get students up and moving, and are a great way to get some more input in without requiring a lot of energy on your part! I have a whole post on why I think Gallery Walks are great so make sure to check that out.
If you’d like to use the readings, but want a smaller activity, you might like this reading comprehension activity! Students read and answer 3 comprehension questions about each person. The reading comprehension activity is also included in this comprehensive resource!
A simple way to celebrate the month is by changing up your classroom decor! Decorate your door or a bulletin board in your classroom so students can be inspired and learn more about these amazing women!
This simple bulletin board includes three facts about each woman included, or you could have students research and add to the board for a fun fast finisher option all month long!
