One of the hardest aspects of being a teacher is having to find and organize resources to be well-prepared for every lesson. The resources should be not only relevant to the topic and meet your school or district’s requirements but also preferably interesting and engaging for the students.
We know this everyday struggle better than you may think, and to help you save time and energy, we have prepared a huge base of authentic resources for Spanish teachers.
With such materials, preparing absorbing classes for your students will be a breeze, and you will have more free time for yourself and your family. Check what Spanish teaching supplies we have for you!

Free List of Songs to Teach Spanish
Songs are one of the most popular Spanish resources for teachers that help them to make their classes more enjoyable and engaging. Music is fun, and it can help in memorizing new words and grammatical structures.
You can include various activities associated with the song you bring to your class, such as guessing the right order of lyrics, replacing wrong words with the right ones, and finally – practicing pronunciation by singing!
As you may know, some of the best and most motivating Spanish classroom resources are songs. All you need to do to access our list of 590 authentic contemporary songs you can use is provide us with your name and email address. Once you provide your email address, you will receive a spreadsheet with not only the song titles but also, more importantly, video links, teaching topics, and useful annotations!
There are lots of songs for a particular occasion (like Cinco de Mayo, Semana Santa, or even Valentine’s Day or Halloween) suitable for lessons on a specific grammatical structure (like infinitives, pronouns or reflexive verbs).
Free Cultural Calendar
During Spanish classes, students should not only develop their language skills but also expand their knowledge of the Spanish-speaking countries’ culture. However, it can be difficult, as there are 21 countries that state their official language as Spanish, and each of them has its own culture, language, traditions, celebrations, and national holidays.
To make it easier for you to introduce various cultural topics to your students, we’ve prepared a cultural calendar as one of our free Spanish teacher supplies. Similar to other unpaid Spanish materials for teachers, you can get it just by sending us your name and email address through a form on a dedicated page.
Among our Spanish teacher resources, you can also find complete pacing and class guides for exciting lessons we will provide you with quarterly.
Of course, It is not an easy task to make sure the class is well-organized, interesting and effective. Our daily pacing guides can serve as easily referenceable tools that provide numerous activities and exercises for various age groups and language levels so that you can choose what’s best for the individual needs of your class. We even include bell-ringer activities, exit tickets and assessments.
Apart from that, thanks to such extensive Spanish teaching materials and resources, you can easily maintain a cohesive structure throughout the learning process. In this way, you can rest assured that students are more engaged and learning more efficiently.
Thanks to our lesson plans for middle school, high school students and adults, teachers are able to prepare a more structured curriculum and manage their time during the class more effectively.
Using these proven teaching resources used daily by hundreds of Spanish teachers, you can ensure there is continuity in your classes throughout the year. Each lesson is the next step after the previous one and builds upon the skills acquired previously while introducing new ones in a logical order.
With so many different activities, exercises and assessments close at hand, you can adjust your classes easily to fit the needs of your students perfectly. These resources for Spanish teachers help manage the right pace and continue with the content at an appropriate rate to meet your learning objectives throughout and by the end of the year.
We have prepared a collection of blog posts on resources for Spanish teachers and even one celebrating their hard work (you’ll even learn why we are so passionate about helping Spanish teachers!). You can find not only suggestions on how to improve your classes but also, for example, recommendations for the most useful courses.
What’s more, if you are looking for question banks to help your students prepare for their exams well, we got you covered with that too. On top of that, we also have useful tips on how to teach gender-inclusive language (we even created a mini-course for you) so that nobody feels marginalized in your classes.
Spanish Class Activities
To make your class more engaging, you should vary activities. However, they should be associated with the topic of the class and adjusted to your students’ language level and age group.
On our site, you will find Spanish resources for elementary teachers, high school teachers, and more – all well-organized and diversified so that your students can benefit from them as much as they can and enjoy your lessons.

You can adjust the choice to your needs and preferences and get either full access or just select what is best for you.
