Here is this week's Fabulous Friday Freebies post...a special super-sized Saturday edition.
September 15-October 15 is Spanish Heritage Month. Have you run out of ideas for what to do to cap it off on Monday? Forgot all about it? Looking to extend it? Personally, I am a believer in teaching students about different cultures regardless of the time of year. And, as a Spanish teacher, I know I will be putting these resources to good use throughout the calendar year.
Here are ten of the top sources on the web featuring free images, videos, lesson plans, games, printables and more.
Número Uno: Over 50 free plans, activities, printables, etc.
Número Dos: Information/activities on famous entertainers to use in language arts, and economics to use in math.
