Spanish Valentine's Day Lessons!! El Dia de San Valentin, El Dia de los Enamorados!

Valentine's Day is just around the corner!!

Come check out La Profesora Frida's 37 page packet of Valentine's Day activities for your Spanish classes!


https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Valentines-Day-Spanish-San-Valentin-PACKET-of-activities-for-Spanish-classes-513132
There are a bunch of fun activities in this packet that you could use all week!  Choose one or two to supplement your lessons each day leading up to Valentine's Day, or set up Dia de San Valentin stations and have students work through the activities at their own pace.

They're not only fun for you to use with your students, but are also great to have on hand for your Fast Finishers during the month of February, and are perfect emergency sub plans because they are self contained lessons.




Included in this 37 page packet are the following activities:

-Tips and Suggestions for use
-Bulletin Board elements
-Valentine's Day vocabulary handouts
-3 dictionary activities
-4 word searches (just for fun!)
-A Spanish Valentine's Day Glyph
-An activity for "anti" Valentine's Day :)
-M.A.S.H. (Mansion, Apartment, Shack, House) game in Spanish
-"Speed Dating" communicative activity for Spanish classes

What some people have to say about this packet:

"Lots of stuff here! I was able to adapt for multiple grade levels. Definitely useful for older students!" ~ Cassandra

"Me encanta la variedad de actividades en este paquete."  ~Ginger

"Profesora Frida, you rock! I love this whole packet. So much better than what I had for Valentine's day activities. I did stations and it was fun for the students and for me."  ~Susan



Don't have much time for celebrating El Dia de los Enamorados with your students?  Check out this fun communicative activity, called "Speed Dating!"

This activity is a BLAST!!  It is an awesome say to get your kids communicating 100% in Spanish in short bursts.  What you do is set up your class like you're hosting a "speed dating" session, haha!  My students often choose to take on a persona for this game-- Pretending to be someone famous! The responses they come up with are hilarious! :)

"I really LOVED the speed dating activity! My students were so invested. Some of the bachelors/bachelorettes were: Hitler, Frankenstein, Miley Cyrus, The Easter Bunny, etc. They did great!"  ~Christine

Having students take on a persona makes things more comfortable - we want our kids to have fun, right??  Well, they DO when they're pretending to be Cinderella or Bruno Mars instead of themselves! 

"Students were talking about this months after it happened. Before they knew what was going on, I had them come up with a celebrity that they wanted to be for the whole period. So, instead of dating each other, they were dating the celebrities. I think it made it easier for them to participate. Thanks for this awesome activity! So great!"  ~Perla A.

In the lesson packet there are easy to understand instructions as well as a "citas rapidas" tracking sheet for your kids.  It helps them remember questions they may want to ask.




The kids also fill out a questionnaire at the end, a good way to wrap up the activity.




So many fun choices for Valentine's Day!!  I hope you have fun with your students this week!  :D
If you do happen to use any of my lessons this week, I'd love to hear how they work for you!

~La Profesora Frida
