This slideshow was actually designed as a part of my maternity leave plans to start the school year. I left this slideshow for both Exploratory Spanish and Spanish 1 to start the year. Have these slides posted as an activity for students to do as they enter class to get them focused. It keeps students busy and gives the teacher a few minutes to do attendance and start class tasks.

A Spanish class Best Seller with 75+ 5 star reviews

  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Although I teach younger students (Prek-5th), I like to get my 5th graders ready to experience Spanish as a true academic class. These are a great way to expose them to culture without breaking away from the TL too much. Thank you! - Yessenia
  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ My students love starting class with something fun and different each day. Each day's activities are well picked and engaging for my 8th-graders! - Amanda L
  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ These have been so helpful to get my first year of teaching started, a huge time saver, and great engaging videos, songs, etc. - Sra Eckman
  • ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I love everything you create! I can't wait to add this to my resources for new things I am working on for revamping my program this year. We are starting face to face and I want to energize them as much as I can so they are totally hooked on Spanish before we have to inevitably switch to learning from home this school year. Thank you for all your hard work!- Cassandra J
