6 “pies” between you: Social distancing poster for Spanish class
As 2021 ends its first month, more schools across the country are resuming their in-person learning. Teachers are juggling more than they ever have due to the pandemic, with some teaching in-person and online students at the same time. The task at hand seems daunting enough but we also have to tack on the fact that everyone has to wear a mask and also keep their distance. Oh, did we mention the kids also have to learn, too? No matter what, teachers always seem to rise to the occasion and meet the ever-changing demands as they are thrown at them.
The CDC has offered a lot of great print resources in Spanish about how to help protect ourselves and others from COVID-19, but we wanted to give you a little something to help your learners to keep 6 pies apart. With the help of our friends María and Raúl, our latest poster helps reinforce social distancing with the help of a punny phrase, “6 pies apart, por favor”. It’s hard for elementary kids to visualize what a 6-foot distance is…but imagining 6 pies (for you non-Spanish-speaking teachers, pies means “feet” in Spanish) in between you and another person is easier and more appetizing.
We want to remind you that regardless of your teaching situation this year, you are doing an amazing job and you are changing the lives of children one Spanish lesson at a time. Whether you have roomies, zoomies, or the very scary challenge of both at the same time, you are amazing. This school year does not define who you are as an educator and you will make it through. Enjoy this Spanish pun in a social distancing poster with our complements and prayers for a quick resolution to this pandemic.
