Fun Call-and-Response Chants in Spanish

Sunday, February 18, 2018
Yes, sometimes using our chime or clapping our hands doesn't work! I have found that call-and-responses work magic to get my students' attention while using the language. I am sharing some that I have learned from other colleagues, at conferences as well as some that have simply occurred to me. I like keeping a variety of them and start introducing them one by one so I can have a big repertoire. I use the short ones with my K-1 students and the longer ones with my 3-5 students. I put them on posters and am sharing them with you in this post. Click here to download them all. And if you have more call-and-response chants, please share them with me in the comments below. I would love to keep adding more to my repertoire!

Have fun!

Fun Valentine's Game to Play in Spanish Class

Sunday, February 11, 2018

Valentine's Day is one of those non-cultural celebrations that I love incorporating into Spanish class because it appeals to students and is easy to connect with the class content. Through "El día de San Valentín" you can teach or review colors, sizes, numbers and ever a few phrases related to friendship in Spanish. Here is a fun game I play with my students. This game is perfect for grades fourth and up!  This game is available on Teachers Pay Teachers. Divide the class in pairs. Each pair should have a die and one of the pieces that says "Jugador #1" and "Jugador #2 to keep track of their points. Each player will have a turn rolling the die. The player will have to read the sentence aloud. Every time the player gets "Feliz Día de San Valentín" sentence, he or she will score a point. Whoever gets the most points wins. The players can decided the amount of time they want to play.
The set includes the game, classroom decorations and a set of cards for your students to decorated and give to their friends.

Magic Words in Spanish

These words come in handy in every class! Use fun reminders and encourage children to use them in their daily interactions. Print the flash cards and laminate them for durability.  Introduce them in a bag. Take each word out and read it aloud. Pretend to do magic tricks using the paper wand included in the cards. Create movements or gestures for each word. You can also use Google to learn the signs from American Sign Language that goes along with each word. Use them when singing the song and invite everyone to sign and sing with you.

Celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. in Spanish Class

Saturday, January 13, 2018

It's important that as language teachers we always look for ways to connect with other subjects and explore more beyond our own subject matter. In many elementary classrooms across the United States, students are reading about Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy for this country. What a great opportunity to take an interdisciplinary approach.

It occurred to me that much like the Hispanic Heritage Month project  I previously posted about in this blog, students can create an interview for Martin Luther King Jr. or create a simple bio poster to display around the school. Please click here to see the post.

If you are an Interactive Notebook lover, this template is perfect for you! Make sure you have multicultural crayons or markers available in your classroom. This is a great opportunity to talk about diversity in our country. After coloring the template, students should write information about Martin Luther King Jr. in the inner part of the template. I have also included a color version for teachers to use to make their sample for the class.  Please see pictures below. Download your template here!

Last, but not least, this is also a great opportunity to talk about paz in our country and the world. Here you can download two color-by-number pages that will help your students learn a few colors and/or reinforce previous lessons about colors in Spanish.

Have a happy and meaningful celebration!
