Christmas Activities for Spanish class

Spanish resources to enrich and support the teaching of Christmas traditions in Mexico.

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! I love teaching about the holidays in Spanish class, especially Las Posadas. There are so many interesting conversations that take place when students compare and contrast Christmas traditions in Mexico and in the United States. Here are three fun vocabulary building activities to keep kids engaged and learning during those last days before break!

Color By Number Color by Number activities are a low stress way to review basic Spanish colors and numbers. This Las Posadas Color by Number includes four differentiated activities with a short, simple reading filled with cognates, present tense verbs and novice level vocabulary. Color a poinsettia, pair of shoes, a Las Posadas celebration, and piñata. Students LOVE this activity. Teachers love that it's no-prep and saves time!

Word Wall - Word walls make meaningful Spanish class decor! They are such an effective way to display and reinforce vocabulary. Fill walls or bulletin boards with 24 vocabulary words related to Christmas in Mexico and visually support students on reading and writing activities. You'll love using word walls because students refer to them over and over again.

Christmas Bingo - Students LOVE playing Bingo! This is not your average bingo game. It's an engaging listening comprehension activity with clues in simple English or Spanish sentences that describe each image. Fun addition to your Las Posadas unit.
