Traditions, special days, and celebrations across the Spanish-speaking world: here you can find all sorts of resources for learning and teaching about them.
As a new teacher, I didn’t know what to do with holidays. I introduced random vocabulary in order to to some fun, light activities, because what students pays attention the day before winter break?
Once I got my head wrapped around comprehensible input, I realized that I could use ANY topic in class. If all the kids were thinking about Thanksgiving or Valentine’s Day, we could just use a song or tell a story based on that holiday. If videos or books were too advanced, I could just narrate or rewrite using comprehensible language.
Sometimes a fun craft or crossword is okay, but I no longer feel like that’s my only option. Take advantage of my collections here to make Spanish holidays meaningful AND comprehensible.
