Raising Awareness to Protect the Spectacled Bear #PonteLosAnteojosPorLaVida

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

February 21st is International Save Bears Day. This day seeks to raise awareness to protect these beautiful animals. The National Park Service of Colombia has made this day "El día del oso de anteojos" (spectacled bear), in order to raise awareness in the country. El oso de anteojos is also known as the "oso andino." It is found in the Andean nations of Venezuela, Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador and Perú. Will you put on your glasses to join the celebration? Find out more about how to join this effort to raise awareness at "Conservemos la vida": http://conservacionosoandino.org/

Get ready to sing this song to celebrate los osos de anteojos!

Last, but not least, visit la Corporación Autónoma Regional de Cundinamarca to see this beautiful oso in action!



Don't forget to put your glasses on and join #PonteLosAnteojosPorLaVida

Fun Call-and-Response Chants in Spanish

Sunday, February 18, 2018
Yes, sometimes using our chime or clapping our hands doesn't work! I have found that call-and-responses work magic to get my students' attention while using the language. I am sharing some that I have learned from other colleagues, at conferences as well as some that have simply occurred to me. I like keeping a variety of them and start introducing them one by one so I can have a big repertoire. I use the short ones with my K-1 students and the longer ones with my 3-5 students. I put them on posters and am sharing them with you in this post. Click here to download them all. And if you have more call-and-response chants, please share them with me in the comments below. I would love to keep adding more to my repertoire!








Have fun!

Fun Valentine's Game to Play in Spanish Class

Sunday, February 11, 2018

Valentine's Day is one of those non-cultural celebrations that I love incorporating into Spanish class because it appeals to students and is easy to connect with the class content. Through "El día de San Valentín" you can teach or review colors, sizes, numbers and ever a few phrases related to friendship in Spanish. Here is a fun game I play with my students. This game is perfect for grades fourth and up!  This game is available on Teachers Pay Teachers. Divide the class in pairs. Each pair should have a die and one of the pieces that says "Jugador #1" and "Jugador #2 to keep track of their points. Each player will have a turn rolling the die. The player will have to read the sentence aloud. Every time the player gets "Feliz Día de San Valentín" sentence, he or she will score a point. Whoever gets the most points wins. The players can decided the amount of time they want to play.
The set includes the game, classroom decorations and a set of cards for your students to decorated and give to their friends.
