I created memes to go with each day, and it increases in difficulty to complete each day, building up their vocabulary and written Spanish skills.

I converted to microsoft word so you can edit it, so you might need to add one space to make it spilt exactly on two pages if you're not using pages - otherwise I've left it a pretty open template so that you don't need to change anything (kids fill in the date etc!)
