Santa is everywhere!

We are getting our classroom ready for the holidays. This was Santa’s week. The kids loved this directed drawing I found on pinterest:
It was super easy following the steps.

Then we cut all the drawings and glue them onto doublesided wrapping paper.

  
The kids did and amazing job!

There are many different crafts on krokotak.com

We will try more next week.

Christmas and getting ready for winter

We had lots of fun before Christmas break. I wish I had taken more photos.
We had a Grinch day with cute crafts and some writing. Then we watched the film. Can you believe none of my students had heard about The Grinch? They were super excited with the movie.

I bought 

Christmas Print and Play Number Worksheets from Melanie (From the Pond). My students loved the spinner games! It is one of my favorite purchases from TPT.

Our last craft was a big Santa paper craft! Sorry I don’t have the pattern. But it is pretty simple as you can see.

We have also created these cute snowmen to celebrate winter. I have seen this activity all over pinterest. 

Each student has drawn their own pieces for the collage- I love that they all look different.
As soon as we came from Christmas break we celebrated Los Reyes Magos. I have some resources from last year.
Kids brought their new toys. Then we talked about the cabalgata(parade) and their Roscón the Reyes (traditional cake).
They toys have been in the classroom about a week and I can say that they have been sharing them and taking care of them.
Our next goal is writing. We will be doing some writing activities. 
You’ll find this snowman writing in my TPT store: How to make a snowman craftivity

Reyes Magos week!

Happy New Year! I know most of you have already gone back to school. I don’t go back until next week. :)

The reason is because we are waiting for the Three Wise Men or Los Tres Reyes Magos.
 I know many bilingual teachers use this resources in their classrooms so I decided to post about my favorite:
Keep reading and you will find lots of online resources, videos, games and even a an online letter.
  
The first one is a video that you can personalize for your students or your own kids. This was created by a toyshop and was very popular last year. You can choose between Santa or Los Reyes Magos. Try it!

The next one is from Ibi. This is a small town in Alicante (Spain). This town is known for having lots of toys factories. You watch a small video about Ibi or visit La casa De Los Reyes Magos.

This is a simple one that I love. Your students will can create a letter by choosing options. It’s great for reading and for listening, as everything that they choose is read aloud.
This is my Reyes Magos unit. You’ll find a Reyes Magos writing craftivity, a camel facts craft and some fun worksheets. It’s English-Spanish. You can find it in my TPT store.

 And last, some games. The first one is just for fun. It is created by a toy brand. So each time they get a present it opens as a real one… But still fun.

The second one is from a great educational site: VEDOQUE. You will find many options for spanish K-6 stdents.
