Have you seen the new Netflix series Waffles and Mochi? I LOVE it! As does my son! It is like a street food show– but for kids! We are both hooked. There are also a ton of connections to the Spanish-speaking world especially in the episodes about tomatoes, potatoes and salt. They also visit PeruContinue reading “Waffles and Mochi”
Recently, I found myself down a YouTube wormhole with a few purposes. I want to start to find some more videos for my Spanish 1 and Spanish 5 classes next year. I have also found a ton of female vloggers (including one of my favorites). I want to find some more videos with males, soContinue reading “YouTube videos to use in Spanish class”

Hope these help with your airplane unit!
When I was teaching elementary school, I loved using these videos when I was teaching weather. They are from Sesame Street- Hace calor and Hace frío. They are in Spanglish, but I still use them with my middle schoolers. They are catchy and have some funny lines. I enjoy watching them as a teacher. 🙂 Continue reading “Favorite weather videos”
I have mentioned before that I love using commercials and other authentic resources. I have tried to compile some of the resources that I use with each unit. I love the following clips for sports.
