Winter has gotten old and we are tired of the short days. We start dreaming about traveling to warmer places! Now is a perfect time for a Youth Hostel lesson plan! My students really love this concept, and for most, it’s a very new idea because youth hostels are not very popular in the US.
At the beginning of my career, field trips were a highlight for students and teachers. As time when on, less field trips were approved, and then Covid hit. After the pandemic, field trips are making a comeback! But what about Spanish In School Field Trips? If you haven’t considered them, keep reading to find out why you should!
Do you need an authentic listening activity for your Spanish students? Try this out! It’s a YouTube video explaining what winter in Chile is like! I created 2 kinds of questions to go with it; open-ended questions for students ready for a challenge, and and Edpuzzle version with multiple choice questions.
When you get back from Winter Break, how do you start off the “New Year” in Spanish class? I’m always torn- do I jump right back into the unit we were in before the break? Do I take some time to do something a little more fun, like New Years activities for Spanish class. Here are some fun ways to get back to school after winter break!
As the holiday season approaches, it can be a lot of fun to teach our Spanish students about the Christmas traditions of the Spanish-speaking world. It’s a great opportunity for some cultural comparisons! The AP Spanish Exam has a section where students make an oral cultural comparison, but why should we wait until their last year? Even if you live in an area where Christmas is not a big thing in your community, it IS a big thing in every Spanish-speaking country. Here are some fun facts to share with your students!
ave you ever visited an Escape Room with a group of friends? It’s a form of entertainment for adults and for younger people! They are so much fun, and that’s why I highly recommend using Escape Rooms for Spanish class!! There is usually an overarching mystery or problem to solve, and you must work through the different clues or puzzles to solve it! In a physical space, you might need to unlock all the locks in a certain amount of time. In our classrooms, we can use technology to make it all digital!
Here are a list of activities for End of the Year FUN in Spanish class!
