Spanish Back to School Activities & Lessons

Hispanic Country Cultural Note

Spanish speaking countries have big-box stores that sell school supplies, but there still remains the small office supply or school supply store, la papelería.  Many people head there to get the following:

  • unos lápices= some pencils
  • unos bolígrafos= some pens
  • un bloc de papel= a packet of paper
  • unas carpetas= some binders
  • unos cuadernos= some workbooks
  • unas gomas= some erasers
  • unos marcadores= some markers

Los Tres Reyes Magos- The Three Wisemen- Today!

Check out the gorgeous Tres Reys Magos parade from Madrid last year.  Today or today is the time for spectacular parades and fiestas all over the Hispanic world to celebrate the official end of the Christmas holidays with the visit of the Three Wise Men. Children write letters to the Reyes attesting to their good behavior and deeds so that they will receive candy and treats from the Reyes left in their empty shoes.  So much fun for all!

A simple Spanish reading and lesson on the visit of Los Tres Reyes Magos brings some celebration to learners.

A paper shoe template put out for the Reyes is also handy.
