Must-Have Resources for Spanish Class
Have you ever started a new teaching position only to find that there are no resources for Spanish class? Either the teacher before you didn't leave anything behind or you're building the Spanish program from scratch. I've been there - at least 5 times in my eighteen years of teaching Spanish! Whether you're a new Spanish teacher or looking to find new resources to engage students, here are some bundles of must-have resources to save time, money, and make learning fun! (Plus lots of free Spanish resources!)
1. WORD WALL BUNDLES
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'll depend less on you and learn to use resources 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."
Word Wall Bundle 2 includes greetings, high-frequency verbs, and Sweet 16 verbs.
