Product Description
An interesting and fun Cinco de Mayo Bundle!

Are you tired of asking your class what Cinco de Mayo is and hearing a choral response of “It’s Mexico’s Independence Day!” One year I was told that it’s “Spain’s Independence Day.” ¡Ay, Caramba! I know the struggle, but here’s the great part—this resource makes learning the factual history of Cinco de Mayo fun and interesting! It’s also presented totally in Spanish! The reading and activities are comprehensible for novice to intermediate Spanish students.

The reading is written in the past tense. Don’t be shy if you haven’t exposed your students to the past tenses yet in Spanish. As they read, students will be able to “match” and/or “create connections” between the past tense verbs to their present tense equivalent. Additionally, all vocabulary is used within context, which further supports student comprehension and acquisition via comprehensible input.

This Cinco de Mayo bundle includes:

-A teacher guide with a suggested lesson outline
-A comprehensive and comprehensible 2-page reading about Cinco de Mayo
-Comprehension questions (answer key provided)
-A 12-slide presentation with multimedia links (accompanies reading) one with the vocabulary defined, and one without definitions (In PDF and PPT formats)
-Pre- and post-lesson slides for practice, discussion, and/or as quick assessments (4 slides total)
-A 24-clue crossword puzzle completely in Spanish (answer key provided)
-A 30-clue word search, students are asked to find the Spanish counterparts of the vocabulary (answer key provided)
-“Resumen del Cinco de Mayo:” students provide a summary and/or reaction about Cinco de Mayo
-KABOOM! A fun game that provides more comprehensible input in a novel way.
-A listening comprehension assessment (teacher script and answer key provided)

This bundle can last you at least 3 days. However, it depends on your pace of instruction and how you decide to use these resources.
