Lista lunes - Día de San Valentín 16

Lista lunes - Día de San Valentín 16

Here are some ideas from around the web to get your wheels spinning for the celebration of love. Remember holidays in language class can be so much more than a free day to "make a card in Spanish" while we eat food. (Which is what we always did while I was in high school and I did my first year teaching). The cultural connections and possibilities are endless with any celebration!



El Día de San Valentín Infografía Activity


Last year I made this simple reading comprehension activity over a Valentine's infograph. It is perfect for a novice level class for basic reading comprehension and to get the discussion started.

Full Valentines Unit from Profe Cochran

Profe Cochran shared an awesome full free packet on Valentine's day last year. Last year I used her helpful speed dating sheet to do a little speed dating in Spanish II. I even got out the prop box so students could date as their alter ego, which is way more entertaining than speed dating with just your normal classmates ;)


Martina's Dating Unit

It works out great that Spanish I will be using Martina Bex's Dating Unit (which is unit 12 in the Spanish I curriculum). We will be taking a break from her curriculum reading Brandon Brown Quiere un Perro this month, but will jump back to this fun unit after we finish. Last year I used an awesome authentic video that is a part of this unit in upper level classes as well. It is about dating and students thought it was hilarious. 

Tengo tu Love


This catchy song by Sie7e is perfect for this time of year. It has wonderful repetitions of "tengo" and is usually one of students favorite songs of the year. I like using Zachary Jones wonderful clozeline activity that can be found in the clozeline 2012 packet. 

Flirting in Spanish Poster

Mi clase es su clase has a cute idea for a flirting poster or bulletin board. These are the kind of phrases students want to learn and will remember!

Es dia de san valentin - Charlie Brown


This full video of Charlie Brown's Valentines Day in Spanish could be used in parts for a movie talk or the entire thing for an upper level class.
