What's in a Bundle?

Inside: Mis Clases Locas Bundles of Resources

You may have noticed that this summer I have added quite a few bundles to my TPT. I have found that when buying items myself, I would much rather be able to get everything all together at once, especially when doing a school purchase order. (Have you asked your school if you can use your classroom or curriculum money on TPT? If not Do It!) 
A perk on a bundle is that are usually marked at about discount! Since I want to make sure you are clear on what is in each bundle, I figured I would break it down.

You can find all of my money saving bundles here. Always click on the resource to see what is included, especially those that are growing. 


Música miércoles GROWING BUNDLE!




For the Música miércoles music loving classes, this will get you enough music for life! This bundle has the added perk that each time I add a Música miércoles resource, the bundle will be updated, and you can download it again at no additional cost. It currently includes the following 5 slideshows. 





All the music resources from me you could ever want!

Para Empezar: 1 year of Spanish Bell Ringers Bundle


1 year of Spanish Para Empezar Bell ringers or brain breaks


If your class does free reading on Tuesday and Thursday every week, then maybe you just want to purchase the Música miércoles Bundle & baile viernes Bundle above. If you are looking for an activity to start class, or as a brain break ever single day of the year, then the 1 year of Para Empezar is the right choice. I recommend completing them in the following order, using the holiday sets during their respective months. As always, the editable Google Slideshows let you adapt everything to meet the needs of your specific classes. It includes the following 8 resources.


Para Empezar for the Novice Spanish
Hispanic Heritage Month: Song of the day - 1 from each country!
Para Empezar - Day of the Dead.
 •6 Weeks of Exploratory Spanish Para Empezar
Para Empezar - Valentine's Day.
 •7 Weeks of Para Empezar
Music Bracket for Spanish Class.
 •6 Weeks of Intermediate Spanish Para Empezar.


A year of Para Empezar with a theme for each day. 

The newest year of Para Empezar has a mix of 22 weeks with a theme for each day, with breaks for HHM, Afro-latino & Music Madness. 


Middle School BUNDLE - Música miércoles & baile viernes for a year

Middle School Music Bell ringers or brain breaks for a year!


If you teach younger students, or just in a more conservative environment, this is the bundle for you. It has enough Música miércoles & baile viernes for a whole year with 36 of each. It includes the most appropriate songs from many other resources, especially from those 4 below.

1st Day of Spanish 2 & 3 Plans (without a syllabus)

Inside: Plans for the 1st day of Spanish 2, Spanish 3 or Spanish 4 that get your students up and moving!


1st Day of Spanish 2 & Spanish 3 Plans - without syllabus day

I have realized that there are so many back to school or 1st day of Spanish class resources that focus on level 1. I think this is because it is easy to start at the beginning. When everyone is starting from ground zero, you can start with anything. Starting with higher levels is messier. Students are possibly coming from a variety of teachers and schools and have a wide range of prior Spanish knowledge. You can read here why I don't start with a review unit and what I do instead. At the same time you need to get some kind of baseline of where your students are at, as well as get to know them. 

I have a unique situation as a #deptof1 that I will have previously taught all of my incoming Spanish 2 and above students. This means that day one I can skip the introduction of myself, the expectations, and the name games and get right to communicating in Spanish. Our first day is a short one and I wanted to start with a big weekend talk to hear about the students' summer (and sneakily use past tense). I do not know about your school, but I know that the first day my students can not wait to talk to each other and move around. They are bored stiff from syllabus day in every other class and just want to catch up. Instead of fighting  the chatter and trying to spend the whole class discussing and circling, I decided to create a "find someone who" people search to get them up and moving.
**Update** I now have the same resource available in FRENCH too!
**Update again** if you need something to mix it up, I now have a similar activity, but now with differentiated question cards for the first day of Spanish 2+!

Planning for El capibara con botas

I mentioned in my curriculum plan for this year that I was going to add the novel El capibara con botas by Mira Canion for the first time.  The book came out after I had already done my big curriculum purchase last Spring, but I knew it would be a perfect culture filled first novel. I even wrote about ideas for the novel last summer here - libro lunes - El capibara con botas. So this year, I asked if I could use my yearly "classroom supply" allowance to instead by a class set of novels. It was approved and I would much rather have books than supplies. (I can buy those cheap myself at back to school sales:) Here you can purchase the El capibara con botas & the teacher's guide

This year my freshman Spanish 1's previous Spanish knowledge includes two seperate quarter long exploratory Spanish classes over the last two years, where they have done the first few SOMOS units, special person interviews, some Sr. Wooly songs, and other various cultural units. I plan to use this novel towards the end of the first quarter of Spanish 1, as well as during y 8th grade exploratory Spanish second semester.
