I love celebrating holidays in class because it is full of language and learning – not a break from it! Here are a few videos that Kara and I use in class to share culture and practice listening skills.
I love these ads from Gol Television… (There are lots of these!)
Just for fun…
What’s your favorite video for the season? Share a link below!
How do you use your videos in class?

This is more for January 6, but here are a couple of cute videos
tus padres no existen 🙂 I wasn’t expecting that! 🙂 Gracias
This is a really cute video that’s great for Spanish 1.
Mochila 🙂 love it!
Too cute! So simple question for class: What did the dad spell?
how do you use them within your classes?
I like to use them to start class. They create good conversation starters about the culture if anything else. I sometimes ask them to write down a summary or describe it. I like to ask “What was it about? Who is the audience? What details/words did you understand?” Other times I ask one specific question like “What did the Rey Mago say did not exist?”. Megan has a great listening form on TPT (http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Listening-Form-1-for-Beginning-Language-Learners-Spanish) for novice listeners.
And sometimes it is really powerful to let them watch it without sound just to get some context before they listen for something specific. I play videos several times in class until they hear it.
thanks so much for the response, and, as always, the amazing resources/ideas!
This video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KBreJd0JD-0 shows that cheesy animated holiday specials with pop stars crooning the title song aren’t limited to the United States.
Kind of a fun video from La Oreja de Van Gogh. 🙂
LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE!! Going to see if we have any “beatboxers” in class tomorrow! Mil gracias por compartir!
Great activity starters!
GREAT FOR EVERY TEACHER
I came back to this post because of the great video resources. Here is another good one I found I think is a good one…even in January because it has los Reyes Magos also:
MIL GRACIAS! I love that!
