This is the Powerpoint I use to introduce students to Quijote and Cervantes before we read the Teacher's Discovery graphic novel. This multimedia powerpoint is almost entirely in Spanish but with vocabulary helps to make it comprehensible for Spanish 3's.

Los Reyes Magos - Three Kings Day Presentation

(0)
Teach your students about how Spanish speaking countries celebrate Epiphany (Día de los Reyes Magos) with this authentic resource. Contains a powerpoint presentation of Nicaraguan Poet, Rubén Darío's poem "Los Reyes Magos," with background information on the author and holiday, and a listening guide (in .doc and .pdf format) with directions for students to write their own letter to the Reyes at the end. WARNING: Because of the holiday, the poem has Christian elements in it. I recommend that you read the poem before buying. Just Google "Rubén Darío Los Reyes Magos."

Carta a los Reyes Magos - Letter to the Wise Men

(0)
This authentic resource guides your students through an interactive website from Spain that allows children to write a letter to the Wise Men for the Día de los Reyes Magos. The download contains a .pdf and .doc that can be edited. I first work with students to figure out keywords that they will encounter. I then have them look up the words they didn't get in small groups. After that, they must individually go to the site and successfully create a letter to one of the Wise Men and answer the questions on the Preguntas page which includes a Venn Diagram for comparing and contrasting Christmas in the US with Los Reyes in Spain. After they have written the letter, they are given the option of printing. Would be a great way to decorate your classroom.
Imperfect Subjunctive Powerpoint
SpanishNobilitySpanishNobility

Imperfect Subjunctive Powerpoint

(0)
This is the Powerpoint I use to teach my students the Imperfect Subjunctive. This Powerpoint assumes that they have already learned the Present Subjunctive. I use WEDDING for my Subjunctive triggers. Since this is a Powerpoint file it could be easily modified for the WEIRDOs out there. (a little Spanish teacher joke) :) There are 14 slides with 3 interactive ¡Practiquemos! slides to allow students to check their comprehension.

"Si El Norte Fuera El Sur," Immigration, Imperfect Subjunctive
SpanishNobilitySpanishNobility

"Si El Norte Fuera El Sur," Immigration, Imperfect Subjunctive

(0)
This is an activity that I developed for my Spanish 4 students. In our Unit on Immigration, we also work with the Imperfect Subjunctive. I teach that first, then introduce this. Later students will use the Imperfect Subjunctive to put themselves in the shoes of immigrants. This Word Doc has key vocabulary and terms front loaded. There are also questions that promote higher order thinking. Also included are the song lyrics, a link to a Youtube version, and discussion questions at the end. *Warning. The lyrics reference drugs, alcohol, topless bars, Lorena Bobbitt, and has the word "ramera." I recommend you look at the lyrics online before buying. I avoid the first verse and most of the chorus (where all of these are contained) and focus on the second verse. Also, the official video has a child urinating in a bucket and you can see his exposed buttocks. The video link I have included shows the album cover throughout the song.

This has become a fun tradition in my Spanish classes. The day before Thanksgiving break we always play "Lotería" with Thanksgiving vocab. Included is the 24 space board (1 space "gratis") and a vocabulary list of 42 words. I am including a Word and PDF of the list in case you would like to modify it. I have also included a detailed instruction sheet with some tips that I have learned over the years to help the game go better.
