SPANISH CHRISTMAS PRESENTATION + 5 ACTIVITIES

SPANISH CHRISTMAS PRESENTATION + 5 ACTIVITIES

This is a presentation on Christmas traditions in Spain which includes full details on key events and celebrations such as: - Sorteo de la Lotería de Navidad (22 de diciembre) - Día de Nochebuena (24 de diciembre) - Día de Navidad (25 de diciembre) - Día de los Santos Inocentes (28 de diciembre) - Día de Nochevieja (31 de diciembre) - Día de Año Nuevo (1 de enero) - Día de la cabalgata de Reyes (5 de enero) - Día de Reyes (6 de enero) - Other Christmas traditions: el aguinaldo y la cesta de Navidad This cultural-topic based resource also includes 5 activities to practice conversation and identify key events and vocabulary in Spanish Christmas tradition. The fifth activity is final test with 22 questions on the whole presentation, which I usually carry out in groups as a Christmas competition game. Bare in mind that this resource is 24 pages long and is intended for pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate levels. Depending on the students' level, teachers may have to pre-teach or explain some new vocabulary. I also recommend showing students short videos of 'el sorteo de la lotería de navidad', 'el discurso del Rey Felipe VI', 'la gala Inocente Inocente', 'las 12 campanadas en la Puerta del Sol', 'villancicos españoles' and/or 'el desfile de Reyes'. You will find lots of videos available on Youtube to exemplify these traditions and celebrations. The day I use this presentation in class, I usually bring with me several Spanish Christmas carols to sing along with my students and some 'carbón dulce', 'turrón' or 'roscón de Reyes' for students to try some Spanish traditional Christmas desserts and sweets. So far it has always been a great success and students really got into Spanish Christmas mode! Please, leave a comment after downloading! Thank you!

It is ideal to help students increase their vocabulary in Spanish in a visual way. How can you use this template?

In addition, you can ask your students to create a sentence so that they are forced to use the new word or even find examples of the word in context and bring them to class. I have included the same template in different colours, since my students use a colours for differientating parts of speech.
