Spanish Instagram

If you’ve haven’t read how to use instagram in your class, first read this post. Once you’ve set up a class account, we recommend the following accounts below. Once you are following, you can project your feed on the board and let students see the pictures. You can even select one student to use an app such as “Repost” to repost an image to the class account. Encourage students and parents to follow the class account. You can post questions and have students respond on IG or use it to spark a discussion in class.

One teacher, created a Instagram account for a character in one of her TPRS stories, called Vicky_La_Vaca, and posts pictures of this stuffed animal in various places, with the captions, of course, in Spanish.

Encourage students to find their more accounts or hashtags of their own interests. If they like movies, have them find an account about películas. Do they like comics? Have them find an account that posts about los superheroes! Do they like fashion, check out #moda! Use it yourself to check out hashtags for the current topic you are studying in class (#comida #casa #familia, etc.) The possibilities are endless.  If you’re students find a post they want to share, have them tag the class account in a comment.

Oh, and one last time. Don’t forget to give us a follow on IG as well, @SpanishPlans and check out these other Spanish Teachers of Instagram.
