¡Es invierno! Spanish teachers, are you looking for creative ways to review previously learned vocabulary while adding something new? Check out these winter activities in Spanish to keep students engaged and learning 'til spring!

Winter Word Wall

Post a Winter Word Wall on your bulletin board for meaningful Spanish classroom décor! Word walls support students with visual input that builds vocabulary quickly. Students are instantly drawn to the bright, colorful images and new words.


"Large font and pictures are super helpful!

So many students began using "new" words once the wall went up."

Fun bilingual listening activity! This is not your average bingo game. Read clues to describe winter vocabulary words in short Spanish sentences, not word for word translation. Students listen to the clue and search for the image being described. The hard work has been done for you. Winter Bingo is an excellent listening activity for novice learners.


"Your comprehensible approach to BINGO makes playing it in class so worth it!"


Sample clues:

"cuando los copos de nieve caen del cielo" (Nieva / Está nevando)

"when snowflakes fall from the sky" (It's snowing)


"una estación del año - comienza en diciembre y termina en marzo" (el invierno)

"a season of the year - it begins in December and ends in March" (winter)
