Looking for authentic resources to teach the traditions of Nochebuena? Use this workbook which includes a culture lesson reading, coloring page, word search, crossword puzzle and cloze activity. Answers are included in this 10-page Nochebuena workbook making it useful for distance learning/ remote teaching… or for an easy end of term activity!

The culture lesson reading is ideal for older students to read on their own; or for the teacher to get a crash course on the festivities then share with younger students. There is a focus on 15 (Christmas) thematic Spanish vocabulary words (e.g. Navidad, adornos, regalos, pavo, luces, alegría and paz).

These words are used again in the word search, crossword puzzle and cloze activity for re-enforcement.

The crossword puzzle tests vocabulary and facts learned from the culture reading.

The cloze activity requires students to listen to the song Fiestas de Diciembre by La Sonora Santanera and fill in the blanks. There is also a cultural snippet on Los Villancicos and Mexican ‘Tropical’ Music. The song is moderately paced; the lyrics are clean and very clear.

Answers to the word search, crossword and cloze activity are included on the last page.

You and your students will enjoy using this colorful, integrated lesson on Nochebuena. The workbook prints clean and clear in black and white as well.
