9. Cognate Word Wall
Last January we wrote about our Spanish cognate word wall that we post as our classroom bulletin board. When reading, students can add a new word to the wall by using a sentence strip post-it.
And speaking of facebook, have you checked out our new “Me Gusta” Stamp?

5. Hand Cut out
Students love to make graphic organizers and our favorite is the Hand Verb, which is a great visual for conjugations. Click the image below to see our post with even more graphic organizers for Spanish.
4. Modern Family, Family Tree
One of the most search terms leading to our site is “spanish family tree” “Modern Family family tree” and “The Simpsons family tree in Spanish”. We made a post where you can download these images, and be sure it is also a top ranked post!
3. Star Wars “papa” Comic
“El ataque de la gramática
Lucas, Yo soy tu papá
Lucas, yo soy tu papa
Lucas, mijo, yo soy el Papa”
Purchase one for your bulletin board.
2. Teaching Spanish Emotions
