Free Elementary Spanish Curriculum

Need a few ideas for teaching elementary Spanish?

You are going to want to take a look at the Technology Enhanced Elementary Spanish Program (TEESP).  This is a program developed by high school Spanish teachers to improve teaching strategies in language education.  "The project was designed to assist small schools with limited budgets with a way to integrate Spanish language learning into elementary classrooms." Using the TPRS method the program includes songs, rhymes, chants and games. The program is available on iTunesU free of charge. All lessons and podcasts are available for download into iTunes for use in the classroom.  You'll need the free quick time player in order to play the videos.

Each lesson has a downloadable PDF lesson plan which includes student sheets, and a teaching video.  The picture below is a screenshot of what you would see on level 1 lesson 3 ¿Cómo se llama?

Enjoy!  Leave a comment if you have used this in your classroom or just let me know what you think.

Check out some of the other free Spanish teaching resources that TEESP offers on their website. These include songs, chants, and printable posters.
