Día del amor y la amistad: A Spanish Round-Up

Inside: Día del amor y la amistad: Spanish ideas and activities for the home and classroom.

 

Looking for ideas and activities for Valentine’s Day? I’ve collected some amazing resources perfect for tying the celebration into your classroom. There’s enough here to fill a week, if you want to! 

(AND – I just teamed up with some of my favorite TpT teacher-authors to give away TWO TpT gift cards– $40 each, to say how much we love our readers. Scroll to the bottom to see the giveaway and enter!)

Valentine’s day in Spanish goes by several names– El día de los enamorados, Día del amor y la amistad, or Día de San Valentín— and it’s not always celebrated on Feb. 14th. But either way, it’s fun to celebrate friendship and love, and the theme lends itself well to relevant, engaging activities.

Some of the links are divided into high school and elementary, and middle school classes could probably use some from both categories. Please share if you have fun ideas for Valentine’s Day in Spanish, as well!
