THANKSGIVING MOVEMENT CARDS IN SPANISH

THANKSGIVING MOVEMENT CARDS IN SPANISH

My younger students love all kinds of movement cards. We use them as quick brain brains. Movement cards are also a great opportunity to connect  language with movement. If you explore my blog you will find that I have made different ones related to different holidays or topics that are of the interest of my students. The movement cards also have a lot repetition. You will find the same action verb or object in different cards.

How do they work? Just read them to your students and have them act every card. These Thanksgiving movement cards have been a hit these days! Download yours here and let the fun begin!

HALLOWEEN MOVEMENT CARDS IN SPANISH

HALLOWEEN MOVEMENT CARDS IN SPANISH

My students really love the Movement Cards I shared on Spanish Playground. I though I will surprise them with a Halloween version! My students have been talking about Halloween since the middle of September. Halloween time is an opportunity to make connections with something students really love. You can find so many concepts to incorporate in Spanish class such as colors, shapes, sizes, feelings and so on. Here is an opportunity to teach some movement words in Spanish. I have added these cards to the brain breaks I will be using with my younger students during October. Download yours here!

Have fun teaching!

Yoga in Spanish Class

Yoga is an awesome brain break and energizer tool. I use a few Yoga poses in my classes to get my students moving and they love it. My students learn about 10 names of Yoga poses in Spanish and we use them throughout the school year. I use them as a quick way to make them move. We play “Simón dice” with them. We also play “Haz lo que digo”, for example. I say the name of a pose, but I show a different one, then whoever does the one I am doing is out of the game. They love it!   We do it fast too! I like to use cards with the picture of the pose and the picture of what it means. 

I lately tried something new! I combined Yoga with storytelling and the students love it. Here is the sample of the story I create to go along with the Yoga cards. 

Five Zumba Routines for Spanish Class

I already made it clear in my last post that you don’t have to wait until Friday to dance in class. It’s important to get your students moving to help them stay in tuned with you. The Zumba routines below are easy to follow and the songs are very catchy.

Ready, set, go!

BRAIN BREAKS FOR SPANISH CLASS

BRAIN BREAKS FOR SPANISH CLASS

I am “brain break” lover! I teach young students, but it doesn’t matter how old your students are, a little break to get them moving will help them tune into class. I use brain breaks a lot, but depending on the time of the day, I have noticed that they are more needed, especially with classes after lunch.

Here is a list of brain breaks for different levels.

Chocolate
Choco, choco, la, la
Cho, choco, te, te
Chocola, chocote,

¡Chocolate!

 

Palo bonito
Palo, palo, palo,
palo bonito,
palo eh,
eh, eh, ah
palo bonito, palo eh.
Hula en español: Five minute video that will get your students moving!
La Yenka: This could also be used as a fun choreography for your students to learn!
You can also use it as freeze dance by just chanting “izquierda, izquierda, derecha, derecha, adelante y atrás, 1, 2, 3” and then everyone freezes.
La Familia Sapo: Perfect to review family members while getting everyone moving
Todo el movimiento: Great to review parts of the body
El baile de la ensalada
Have fun moving in class!
