The egg hunt is over, the candy has been eaten, and you are left with dozens of plastic eggs. Now what?? Use those plastic eggs in Spanish class, of course! (P.s. if you don’t have any, stop reading this and immediately proceed to your nearest Target or similar store because they should have some 75% off or more since it is just after Easter! Grab some discounted chocolate while you are there, too. Go ahead, you deserve it.😀) Here are FIVE ways I love using those leftover plastic eggs in Spanish class.
1. EGG HUNT WITH TASK CARDS
2. TELLING TIME
Is your Spanish class not loud enough? Make maracas! Check out this blog post from A Thrifty Mom for step by step instructions on how to construct these fun little music-makers (hint: it’s really easy). I love how students can put their own creative spin on them when they decorate. Ties in a little culture, too!
I love your idea to differentiate and color code the eggs for group work. Thanks for the great tips, Dianna.
You are most welcome! I am glad you found this post useful!
I love all of these ideas! Thanks for sharing them! Can you give me an idea of a task that you had students do in the first activity? I have mostly Spanish I classes and am at a loss as to what to have them do (:
¡Hola! I am so glad you like these ideas! You can put anything you want on task cards which is what makes them such a great learning tool. I like to use a variety of tasks so students get a well-rounded review. Here are a couple task card freebies I have in my TpT store so you can get an idea of what I mean:
I hope that helps!
Yes, thank you!
