One of the first signs of winter are snowflakes and snowmen. They seem to suddenly appear everywhere you look – decorating yards and porches and storefronts, too. If you are looking for some great way to bring some fun winter activities for Spanish in your middle school or high school classroom, I have some wonderful ideas for you!
You all know I love a good movie talk! This one is perfect for the winter season. It’s about a snowman is just dreaming of warmer weather – talk about relatable! It also has a pretty sweet ending. Click here to check it out!
Let your students practice new verbs or review old ones with Verbos Nievos! Students write an infinitive in the middle of a snowflake, then conjugate the verb on the snowflake. You can also have your students decorate the snowflakes for added color! This can also turn into a fun display in your classroom, hallway, or as a door decoration!
Countdown to Winter Break
This time of year it’s hard not to be antsy and look forward to our longer break! I love this classroom display that’s simple and fun to celebrate how many days you have left until descanso!
(Mid)Winter Break Writing Activity
This resource makes up a big part of my first day back from winter break plans! Students write and (in some classes) draw about what they did over break. I also have a version that I use with my Spanish Is to write about what they are going to do before they leave for break!
Snowman Listen, Write, Draw
This is one of my favorite winter activities for Spanish class! In this snowman listening activity, students show comprehension by drawing what they understand in the target language! I love a listen, write, draw for a simple day full of student learning that gives me a break. Students illustrate the meaning of each sentence they hear, including colors!
