¡Hola! Welcome to the very first Spanish Teacher Blog Link-Up, Diálogos Domingos! I teach elementary Spanish and I am constantly looking for new and creative ideas to implement in my classes. I have found tons and tons of blog link-ups that allow teachers to collaborate and share their blog posts, ideas, and even their products on Teachers Pay Teachers. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to find any that are specifically geared towards Spanish teachers. I am sure there must be some, but since there don’t seem to be many, I decided to create my own.

Since I am crazy busy during the week between teaching and my own kids’ crazy schedules, I decided to start these on Sundays. I am hoping that this Spanish Teacher Blog Link-Up will allow all of you amazing Spanish teachers to share and find resources that will enhance your classrooms and engage your students. Even better, they may save you some valuable time!

How to Join the Spanish Teacher Blog Link-Up

It’s easy! Simply fill out your info onto the Linky form at the end of this post.

Spanish Teacher Blog Link-Up Rules

The rules are pretty simple and designed to help each other get as much exposure as possible (particularly important for those sharing original resources):

  1. Add your link (see above for instructions);
  2. After you have added your link, I am asking (honor system) for you to do your best to visit and comment (if a blog post) on AT LEAST the post before you and the post after you;
  3. Link back to this page on any social media outlets that you choose (but at least 1) so others can find your great resources and ideas! The easiest way to do this is to click on the share buttons at the end of this post;
  4. Help market and share the posts you find and the linky image above. The more we can share it, the more the linky can grow and people will seek it out for great teaching advice and resources; and
  5. Leave a comment answering the question of the week (you can find this below).

These will change periodically. Please respond to one or more that you have not already answered!

Thanksgiving is a special time of the year when families come together to express gratitude and celebrate the blessings in their lives. It’s also a wonderful opportunity to engage children in fun and educational activities that will not only keep them entertained but also teach them important lessons about the holiday. In this ultimate guide to Thanksgiving activities for kids, we have explored various ways to make this Thanksgiving season memorable for students and children.

We began by highlighting the importance of Thanksgiving activities for kids. These activities offer a chance for children to learn about the history and significance of Thanksgiving, as well as develop important skills such as creativity, critical thinking, and teamwork. With a wide range of crafts, games, and educational resources, you can keep your children engaged and entertained throughout the holiday season.

We then delved into the fun and educational Thanksgiving crafts for kids. From creating handmade Thanksgiving cards to making adorable turkey decorations, these crafts not only provide an opportunity for kids to showcase their creativity but also serve as a wonderful way to bond with classmates and family members. The festive Thanksgiving games for kids were another highlight, offering exciting ways to keep children active and entertained during this festive time.

Additionally, we explored educational Thanksgiving activities for kids, which included lessons and digital teaching resources. These resources are designed to enrich children’s understanding of Thanksgiving by incorporating educational elements into their activities. We also provided Thanksgiving teaching ideas, such as printables and storytelling recommendations, to help you create a dynamic and engaging learning environment for your students and children.

Lastly, we discussed Spanish Thanksgiving teaching ideas, allowing children to explore the holiday from a multicultural perspective. By incorporating Spanish vocabulary and cultural elements into their activities, children can broaden their horizons and develop an appreciation for diversity. If you are interested in more Spanish activities, a great place to start is this post introducing Spanish colors with lots of info and freebies!

As you can see, there are countless ways to make Thanksgiving a memorable and educational experience for children. Check out the various lessons and Thanksgiving activities for kids now, and create lasting memories this Thanksgiving season!

    Yes! We are using Coco as a resource to practice family vocabulary by describing and discussing Miguel’s family while we watch the movie 🙂

      I love Coco! Using it with my 4th graders this week and can’t wait!

    This will be week THREE on Día de los Muertos for me and my high school students 🙂 We watched Coco and completed worksheets where students described the characters and used Google Slides to create a family tree of all 21 characters. I like to add in Frida Kahlo and Alebrijes when teaching Day of the Dead, so we’ve completed a Frida Unit by Llearning Llama and a Frida Escape room by Manzana Para La Maestra. We’ve worked through Martina Bex readings for Day of the Dead and completed Sudoku De Los Muertos (my resource). For Alebrijes, we read the history of Alebrijes (from Spanish Resource Shop). SRS also had a ser/estar activity with Alebrijes that was perfect! Spanish 1 students completed my “Roll & Draw Your Own Alebrije” last week and described their animals in Spanish. I haven’t finished my blog post about this (it’s on the to-do list) but it was a LOT of fun! SO much fun with SO many different resources from my TpT Spanish tribe! OH! I almost forgot! We also made cempasuchiles for our altars 🙂

    For Day of the Dead, I love showing the video from Teacher’s Discovery (Moo!) that is filmed in Oaxaca and narrated by students. (See my blog post “Instant Field Trip” for more details) My middle school students always connect with it! Then we practice vocabulary by drawing and labeling an altar, completing a word search or crossword and playing bingo!

      That reminds me of when I had access to the Quack! videos from Teacher’s Discovery! I loved those videos! I didn’t have nearly as many Moo! videos.

    1/20/19 I teach high school Spanish in rural southern Ohio. I also adjunct part-time at the local university.
