Spanish Resources Roundup
I know firsthand how hard it is to find quality Spanish resources for teachers for your classroom. To make sure you can focus on teaching, I now work full time to make Spanish curriculum for your proficiency centered Spanish class – let’s dive in to these 7 great free teaching resources so you can start planning!
Spanish 1 Lessons – First Day
Need ideas for first weekSpanish 1 lessons? I’ve got you covered. Check out my post here that outlines my entire first day of Spanish 1 with comprehensible input – I used it for years and I know it will help you out!
Spanish Digital Resources
This digital interactive notebook is my favoriteSpanish resource for teachers busy during back to school time. It’s completely digital, self-paced, review-based, and perfect for students inSpanish 2 who might be coming from all different types of situations with the crazy difficult pandemic school year. This allowsSpanish teachers to focus in on high frequency verbs and differentiation without compromising your time planning.
I used this next resource during the immediate needs of quarantine teaching for mySpanish 2 class. We were doing a quick verb bootcamp to prepare them for their next teacher (who may or may not teach with comprehensible input – you never know, right?)
Spanish Resource Library 2021
The Spanish TPT authors are really excited to bring you another free Spanish resource library just in time for back to school! It includes over 20 digital resources for Spanish teachers including ready-made Spanish 1 lessons. Head on over to download it and start planning!
Spanish Resources for Proficiency
It’s especially hard to findSpanish resources for proficiency-oriented instruction. Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Here’s my favorite freebie for back to school to get started with special person interviews – a set of posters, activity and quiz set so that nothing is holding you back from this groundbreaking community builder!

I grabbed your free Special Person Interview Posters from TPT. They are so pretty – and helpful in the classroom!
Our digital arts teacher has offered to print them out in color but he does it through a Mac and he’s being asked to enter a code to enable him to upload it to an i app (he may have said iMovie?).
Any way, I was wondering if you have a code that you would share?
If not, he said he can probably figure out a work around to print them in color for me.

Hi Lisa! You shouldn’t need a code, it’s just a PDF document from the free download– mine print out on a mac just fine. I don’t have a code to give you but if you send me an email maybe we can troubleshoot further and figure out what’s going on with it?? Send me your email at email@example.com if it’s still not printing for you. Thanks!
