One of my favorite ways to have fun in Spanish class is to tie in something seasonally fun AND still get Spanish in! I thought it would be fun to share some ideas this October that you could use to have some spooky fun with these Halloween Activities for Spanish Class.
Halloween Activities for Spanish Class
Clothing and Colors Vocabulary
Are you teaching clothing and color vocabulary right now? PERFECT! Halloween is a great time to incorporate that vocab into your classroom! Here’s a few fun ideas for you:
¿Qué lleva el esqueleto? Students show comprehension by drawing what they understand in the target language! There’s a few options with this one – you can have students listen to the included files, you can use the script to read it out loud to your students, or you can print the reading version instead for students to read and illustrate the sentences.
Give your students a chance to be creative with this design a skeleton and describe them drawing and writing activity. Students decorate their skeleton, adding hair, eye color, and clothing. Then, students write a description of their skeleton that includes physical descriptions, personality traits, and describing the clothing they have drawn! You can let your students use their imaginations, or you could give them a list of specifics you want them to include.
You know I LOVE gallery walks to give students tons of input, and there’s tons of ways you can use them in your classroom. There are 10 short readings about how these students are going to celebrate Halloween and what they are wearing for their costumes written in comprehensible language. There’s also a guess who game for your students to play for speaking practice!
Picture talks are another one of my favorites (hear more about them here!) This set has pets in costume (PERFECT, right?) and I love using it this time of year because the kids love seeing the animals and they’re into talking about what they’re wearing!
Movie Talks for Halloween
Movie Talks are one of my activities to give my students comprehensible input! A Movie Talk is definitely fun and engaging, but the students get a TON of practice! These Halloween Themed Shorts for Movie Talks are great to include in October for a little Halloween themed fun!
This resource includes a short reading about a girl who wants to celebrate, but has to babysit written in comprehensible language. The reading includes vocabulary supports at the bottom of the page to help your students be successful.
