5 Must Have Resources for Spanish Class
Have you ever started a new teaching position only to find that there are no resources? Either the teacher before you did not leave anything behind or you are building the Spanish program from scratch. I have been there. At least 5 times in my eighteen years of teaching Spanish! Whether you are a new Spanish teacher or you are looking to find new resources to engage students, here are 5 must-have bundles of activities that save time and make learning fun!
1. WORD WALL BUNDLE
Word walls are an effective way to display vocabulary. Fill empty classroom walls and bulletin boards with cognates, high frequency words, subject pronouns, and interrogatives to visually support students on reading and writing activities all year long. Students of all ages will refer to these vocabulary words again and again. They will depend less on you and learn to use resources found in the classroom instead.
This Spanish Word Wall Bundle includes four word walls with over 200 words!
"This bundle includes so many high-frequency words. I have noticed my students looking at my word wall and using it how it should be used."
2. SPANISH SPEAKING ACTIVITIES BUNDLE
Want to ease students into speaking Spanish gradually? These quick and easy speaking activities will get students out of their seats and speaking with one another about their favorite subject—themselves! Generate interest and build confidence in speaking Spanish with a bundle of fifiteen "Find Someone Who" activities.
"This was definitely a lifesaver for me. I'm in my first year teaching and it helps to have smart activities to generate interest and get students talking."
Teachers have found these conversation starters to be infinitely reusable and easy to use. Includes 15 no-prep activities for talking about birthdays, adjectives, class schedules, clothing, food, family and likes & dislikes. Watch your classroom become filled with the wonderful sound of students speaking in the target language! Must have resource for novice learners.
