Creative resource for using in a Spanish classroom with an interactive whiteboard: Crickweb. This is very easy to navigate and find relevant resources. The site is free which makes it all the more appealing. They have an entire section dedicated to early level Spanish, including activities for numbers, colors, fruits, veggies, transportation, and classroom objects.

AlienI liked many of the non-Spanish activities. Thinking outside the box, they can easily be applied to Spanish topics. There are three activities with an alien creature named Leaky; they can be adopted to review body parts, clothing/weather, and comparisons. For the body part review, I would give a command – telling students to add a specific body part. They would get to pick which one and where. For the clothing/weather, the prompts would just need to be translated into Spanish. The graphics are great for a younger Spanish class. The comparisons activity could be a writing prompt for the students. They would have to write comparison sentences based on what they saw.

Math teacher toolkit provides a collection of activities that could be used for Spanish number review. There is also a 12 hour and 24 hour clock for practicing time.

There is even a page of classic games created for an interactive whiteboard. Most of them would just be for fun. I could use Connect Four when practicing directions – a la izquierda/a la derecha. I would have two students on a team, one giving directions to the other student. The math squares could be number review/challenge for Spanish numbers.
