Spanish St. Patrick's Day Activities
Fun activities for teaching St. Patrick's Day vocabulary! Find no-prep resources you'll want to use year after year to add new vocabulary into Spanish class!
St Patrick's Day Word Wall
I love using word walls in the classroom to build vocabulary and decorate bulletin boards! Students are drawn to the bright images and new words. This St. Patrick's Day Word Wall has 21 Irish themed vocabulary words to give students visual support on reading or writing activities. Instant comprehensible input.
St. Patrick's Day Bingo
Everyone loves bingo! This St. Patrick's Day Bingo game includes 16 vocabulary words (that correspond to the word wall), 40 bingo cards, a set of calling cards, and vocabulary lists. Use the calling cards to call words out in Spanish as students search for the correct image. For a challenge - describe the words on the calling card OR have students work together write the clues! Example: "Un país en Europa."
Variations: There are so many ways to play! You can go for the traditional 4 in a row, 4 corners, the 4 middle squares, an X, or all of the squares around the perimeter. Simple & easy translation game to pull out on a moment's notice or for the last few minutes of class. Fun for small groups or stations!
St Patrick's Day Word Search
Word searches are a fun & easy, low stress activity. Not only are they FUN — they improve word recognition, spelling and increase vocabulary. Students don't even realize they're learning! This St. Patrick's Day Word Search has 18 holiday words to define & find. Great activity to have on hand for warm ups, fast finishers, stations, or easy Spanish sub plans. Let them work in pairs for added fun. My students beg for word searches!
Hope you've found some great ideas to bring some Irish fun into your Spanish class!
