Day of the Dead resources

We don’t really celebrate Day of the Dead in Spain. But as I am having lots of bilingual teachers I decided to share some online resources a video and a cute craftivity I just posted in my store.
This is a great video to show to your Spanish learners. It explains the meaning of the celebration in Spanish.
It is very difficult finding educational games about the Day of the Dead. But I found these  two games:

The first one is my favorite. I’m sure my students will love creating this colorful skulls. You can have your students play on the Smartboard and say the parts of the body as they see them: Pierna derecha! o Right leg!

The second game is just an remake of one of those shooting games. It is an oldie, but it is great!

I have also created a fun craftivity to use in your classroom. It has many posibilities. Check it at my TPT store!

Five senses unit

We have been in school for 4 days now. We are still learning expectations and revising procedures but I am getting ready for my first science unit: OUR BODY.

I have created a small Fold and Learn activity about the 5 senses that you can get in my TPT store. It is quite simple but it will help my students reviewing what we learned last week.
You can do it in English or Spanish.
I have been searching some Spanish online resources to teach the 5 sense and this is what I have found. Some online games with lots of listening that you can use on your Smart Board. I have included some English  because I know that most of you teach in English language classrooms.
 Now I have detailed it a bit so you can quickly see what you’ll find in each site. Just click on the images to visit that game.

Most of these games are for K-2 students. Some of them include teacher resources and printables.

Most of them have cool sounds that and even some videos!

And these are the English resources. The second one is my favorite!
