Do you need a quick and fun filler activity right before holiday (Christmas) vacation? I have the activity (or project - you can go as far as you want with this!) just for you! Feel free to use this with ALL levels of Spanish (I use it with Spanish 1 and my Spanish 4 classes) and modify it as needed. It's easy, fun, and simple to grade. Best part is that the kiddos just LOVE it!
This holiday card activity is perfect for middle or high school students, as they LOVE making a card in Spanish and giving it to a staff member in the building as a gift from the heart! Students are asked to design a lovely seasons greetings card for a teacher, counselor, principal, coach or support staff member in the building! They get to choose who this goes to!
If you need this project to last a duration of two or three days, have them start with a rough draft, revise it, peer edit, and then create the final product with construction paper, crayons, markers, glitter, stickers, etc.!
Once finished, students deliver these holiday cards to staff members either by dropping it in their staff mailboxes, or a personal delivery! (If they do it in person, I make them read it in Spanish and translate it to English!)
I've incorporated this activity into my lessons every year and it is still one of the students' favorites! My world language colleagues always ask to "steal it" from me, as it gives them a nice (educational) break from the ongoing curriculum, and all students are engaged!
