But do not panic, here at Rockalingua we have been working on new Spanish teaching materials for kids that are perfect for the first weeks of school, so stay calm, we have you covered ;)

I want to share with you a couple of activities to review colors that my students really like.
This are basic activities for beginners but I have seen students in middle school and high school having problems recognizing colors so you can do these activities even if you are teaching upper grades. IT IS NEVER A WASTE OF TIME TO REVIEW BASIC BUT IMPORTANT VOCABULARY!
Ever since I started teaching Spanish a few years ago I always had a difficult time finding good materials to use with my students. The text books I found did not follow a coherent teaching sequence and they did not meet my students needs at all. Most materials were boring and they lacked good ideas or fun illustrations to engage my students. Spanish was not a mandatory subject at public schools so there was not a huge market for publishing companies to invest in Spanish teaching materials. So there we were, us Spanish teachers left alone....
