It’s the most wonderful time of the year–well, if you’re a teacher, that is! Teachers Pay Teachers is holding its annual Cyber Sale on Monday, November 28 and Tuesday, November 29. Because individual stores offer discounts
TpT corporate offers a discount, you are able to save more during site wide sales than you can when a store holds its own sale. So and now is the timeto snag the lesson plans and activities that you’ve been eyeing, because you can’t get them any cheaper than you will be able to this week!
This is a great time to invest in my SOMOS curriculum for
Spanish 1 or for Spanish 2, I have tons of other products that teachers can use to provide cultural, comprehensible input to their students regardless of the curriculum that they are using. Here are some products from my store that I think you, Spanish teacher, might be interested in!
I finally began bundling my Spanish 2 units! The Units 1-6 bundle is the only one available so far, but look for more bundles coming soon! My Spanish 2 curriculum systematically targets past tense constructions through comprehensible input, making it easy for teachers that are tied to textbooks to provide comprehensible input while still hitting required grammar points.
While you can purchase the almost-complete Fall subscription during the sale, it’s time now to plan for the Spring semester! Each week, I publish 5 summaries of news stories from the Spanish-speaking world, written in easy to read Spanish. The Spring subscription will be published weekly between January and May and will consist of 21 issues when complete!
For me, both this bundle and the original are must-haves for language classes (the original is available in French, too). It contains 18 reproducible activity worksheets that students can complete independently during or after reading any text–making it ideal for sub days, differentiation, and on-the-fly activity needs!
This is one of my favorite songs to teach to students, and this unit is SO FULL of content, you probably won’t be able to use it all! Readings, activities, class discussions…I spent a lot of time creating activities that would make this entire song comprehensible to my students–without using any English to do it!
Did you know that teaching culture can be really, really fun?? This game will introduce your students to 9 famous Hispanics from diverse career fields and countries, and it targets the structures nació, fue el primer/último, and su propio!
I love teaching about real people, real events, and real concepts in the target language. This product contains three readings of increasing detail and complexity about Lionel Messi, and is ideal for differentiation or to place in a class library for free reading.
I am not doing as much blogging and lesson writing these days because my responsibilities at home are…overwhelming…so I also want to share with you some products from other teachers’ TpT stores that are comprehensible and high quality:
by Kristy Placido: Teaching in Target
This resource is an interesting non-fiction look into a movement in Mexico City and around the world to legitimize and celebrate talented street artists who make their mark on the city! A great addition to an art unit or for teaching about Mexico.
Music connects your students deeply to the language. These activities provide everything you need to teach 10 of the most popular songs from Kristy’s classroom!
This product is a fun way to bring quick bursts of authentic language into class! Seasonal fun that students really enjoy.

This is a 3 week unit that includes facts about water contamination, cross-curricular connections to science and engineering, movie talk, self-selected vocabulary, a film study, and more.
