12 Free Interactive Websites for Spanish Class

It’s amazing how many free resources for learning and teaching languages are available at no cost. Many of these websites can be used during class with your students or as support to your program at home. I recommend, however, that you take the time to explore the sites before using them with your students or recommending them to your students’ parents. Here are the ones I have found are suitable for the elementary level.
*Please note that this site has both paid and free resources.
Enjoy!

Fun For Spanish Teachers

Fun Christmas Game to Play in Spanish Class

This game will get everyone involved in class and will allow participation at different levels. For this game we read the e-book ¡Papá Noel! ¿Quién Tiene Tu Gorro?. In this short story “Papá Noel” is missing his hat. He is worried and needs to find it before Christmas. He will ask Rudolph, the Christmas star, the candy cane, and others for the hat. To his surprise, he finds that the Christmas present had his hat. Once he has the hat on his head Papá Noel shouts happily “Ho, Ho, Ho, ¡Feliz Navidad!


In preparation for this game, you will need to print the “Papá Noel” without the hat and a few copies of the hat. Just scroll down to find the link to download them for free . Laminate them and place Velcro or adhesive tape on the back of each hat.


You will need to teach students each of the phrases in the game. A good way to do this is to chant them along with children. I encourage my students to chant as a whole group and help each other out this way. 


Next, choose a student to volunteer to be Papá Noel. Ask this student to leave the room. 


Quietly distribute the hats between the children and ask them to hide the hats.

Invite your class to call the child who left the room by saying “¡Papá Noel ven aquí!


Then, the class will ask: “¡Papá Noel! ¿Quién Tiene Tu Gorro?

The student who is Papá Noel will ask in the class “¿Tu tienes mi gorro?

The student and the class will answer: “Sí, si tengo tu gorro.” or “No, no tengo tu gorro“.

You can choose the number of turns you allow. If the student who is Papá Noel finds the hat, he can place it on the picture and say “Ho, Ho, Ho ¡Feliz Navidad!“.

This is how it goes:


Class: Papá Noel ven aquí
         ¡Papá Noel! ¿Quién tiene tu gorro?
Student (Papá Noel): ¿Tu tienes mi gorro?
Class: No, no tengo tu gorro.

         Sí, sí tengo tu gorro.
