This is a fun Halloween game for lower elementary Spanish. In preparation for the game, print the pages more than once, laminate them, and put them in a bag. Use the big flashcards to introduce or review the emotions vocabulary in this game. You can also use the cards to play “charades.” Place all the cards in a bag, including the cards that say “¡Qué horror” and “¡Es Halloween.”
Divide your class into groups, depending on the number of students you have. You can have from 2 to 4 groups. Explain the rules of the game and the meaning of each card to the children. Each group takes turns taking the cards out of the bag. If they take the “Qué horror” card, it means they have to put 1 card back into the bag. If they get the “¡Es Halloween!” card, it means they get another turn. You can decide the amount of time you want to play the game. At the end, the group that has the most wins!

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!
Halloween is an exciting time in elementary school. There is always so much vocabulary that could be explored around it: colors, shapes, likes, costumes and so on. You don’t have to go anywhere else to find great songs for your class. Below I am sharing five of my favorite ones!
It’s Halloween time, and many of our students get excited about it in school. I always see this time as an opportunity to bring new language to my classes. It’s a great time of year to teach or review colors, seasons, feelings and so on. Last year, I bought this holiday movie classic and watched it in my classes but didn’t really have the time to plan an activity to go along with it. This year I decided to create an activity set that students may use to talk in Spanish after watching the movie.
I show the movie to my students in Spanish and show English subtitles. According to your level and class meeting frequency, you might want to watch it in Spanish without subtitles. I used this activity in my third grade classes, but I am sure if can be used with various levels.
This is Halloween game that your younger students will enjoy. Putting the pumpkin together as a group is a lot of fun. You could either make sets for different groups or have one for the whole class. Call out a part of the pumpkin face and have your students find the right one and add it to the pumpkin. After completing the face, students can label the parts.
I like laminating my sets so I can reuse them later. I use this on a cookie try or on a magnetic board. You can create more parts with construction paper, maybe add crazy hair, hands or feet.
Halloween is around the corner and I know many teachers are getting their lessons ready for this special occasion. Halloween is an exciting time for many children in the United States and also a great opportunity to explore a lot of language in Spanish class: colors, numbers, feelings, shapes and so on!
To make your life easier I have put all the free and paid resources I have in my Teachers Pay Teachers store so you don’t go crazy looking for them all over the place.
