Lista lunes: Day of the Dead 16

Lista lunes - Day of the Dead

Now that it is officially October, here are some of my favorite resources from around the web to celebrate the Day of the Dead in Spanish class. This is one of my favorite holidays to teach about, since the students love the interesting culture. I always allow a full week to delve into the holiday all in Spanish. Everyone keeps posting all of their decorative finds in all kinds of stores, and I have to hold myself back and remember that I bought out the Target clearance section last fall after the holiday for 90% off!! (See below) Please add more great resources and ideas in the comments.

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. 
Update: I now have a new guide for Coco for French class too

Para Empezar - Day of the Dead

Due to the popularity of my Para Empezar for Hispanic Heritage Month, I decided to make one to go with the Day of the Dead. It would be perfect to start right after HHM ends, and continue for 3 weeks though Day of the Dead week. They could be used as one activity each day, or combined for a couple days worth of content. The daily activities are as follows:
Monday - Ad/Infographic
Tuesday - Video
Wednesday - Music 
Thursday - Joke
Friday - Dance

Cultural Reading in Spanish - Mexico & Day of the Dead

I made this novice level 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. 

Book of Life - Novice Movie Guide

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).

All Posts for the novel Tumba by Mira Canion 

(Tumba is a perfect way to have students learn about the holiday. I plan to start the novel with Spanish 1 once I return from maternity leave)
