Lista lunes: Day of the Dead 15 - Mis Clases Locas


It has been a while since I posted a lista lunes, so now that it is officially October, it is the perfect time for some of my favorite Day of the Dead resources. Here are some past resources I have used, as well as some new finds for this year. 

Coco - Movie Guide

Coco - Movie guide for Spanish class



This guide for the movie Coco could be used with every level you teach. It has character descriptions and matching, versions in Spanish and English, as well as a post viewing questions and matching, which could be used as an assessment. I can use versions of this one guide with every since level I teach, Exploratory through Spanish 4. 

Book of Life - Novice Movie Guide

Lista lunes: Day of the Dead 15 - Mis Clases Locas

This guide is based from the amazing Kara Jacob's intermediate level guide. If you teach higher level students, her guide is perfect! I bought the movie in English online and show it in Spanish (with English subtitles in level 1). 

Cultural Reading in Spanish - Mexico & Day of the Dead

I made this reading to go along with the novel Tumba. It would be a good reading to introduce a little bit about Mexico with a brief overview of the Day of the Dead.

Also, I would like to add that if you happen to teach at a Catholic school, like I used to, this is the perfect time to add in connections to All Souls' Day, and All Saints' Day, emphasizing the celebration of those who have passed away. I personally used to make a huge 3 way Venn diagram comparing and contrasting the Day of the Dead, Halloween, and the Catholic celebrations that fall during the same time frame. Just some ideas that came up from a Twitter conversation last week!

Cute board in my room made by my amazing senior assistant in just 1 class period. Have I mentioned that if there is anyway you can get a student helper in class, make it happen. She has been such a blessing so far this year!

How are you planning on teaching the Day of the Dead? Share your resources in the comments!
