Easter Resources {Spanish for Kids}

{Affiliate links used.}

Easter comes early this year at the end of March. So here is a look at resources that are available if you teach Spanish to kids.

First of all, I have a post filled with books related to spring. You can find it here.  Look through the list of books to find ones that might work around Easter time.

Here are some books that are more specific to Easter.

LA Sorpresa De Mama Coneja- This sweet book is about some little bunnies who decide to surprise their mom with eggs from different birds.

The Legend of the Cascaron- A bilingual book on how the tradition of "cascarones" came to be.

Easter is a great time to review emotions and to use eggs as the base for "emotional faces". My absolute favorite book about emotions is Así me siento yo . In the fall, we read this book and do pumpkin faces. During Easter, you can do the same thing but with eggs. {See this free printable.} We read the story and then each student gets an faceless egg page. I call out things like, "El huevo contento" or "El huevo triste", and my students draw the faces. Because this printable has color to it you can make it more difficult by saying, for example, El huevo anaranjado está nervioso.

Here are some fun eggs that can be used in your lesson on emotions. Read this post for teaching ideas.
