The Night Before Navidad (A Spanglish Poem) is a fun, festive activity to do with your students during the Christmas season!
It loosely resembles the original Christmas poem, using rhyming Spanish words at the end of each line to teach fun Spanish vocabulary. Your students will have a wonderful time reading the poem aloud, identifying cognates, and using context clues to help define the vocabulary words. Once all of the Spanish vocabulary is translated, they can reread the poem entirely in English!
(Keep in mind, while it rhymes with the Spanish endings, it will not rhyme in the English translation!) Your students will love this silly variation of a classic Christmas poem.
