Back to School JUST GOT BETTER! TpT announced that they are having a BONUS Back to School sale and we can't wait to treat you with another day of up to 25% off EVERYTHING in our store - the sale runs TOMORROW ONLY–– Tuesday, August 20. This will likely be your last chance to get the lowest price available on materials that will help you start the school year in confidence!


The Comprehensible Classroom is the #1 store for world language teacher resources on Teachers Pay Teachers. Over the last 8 years, we have earned the trust of thousands of language teachers with high quality, high value resources that support teachers that are teaching for proficiency with an emphasis on comprehension based methods.

The SOMOS Curriculum (available for Level 1 or Level 2 Spanish or Level 1 French) is a comprehension-based, proficiency-oriented curriculum for beginning language classes. If you are new to CI, SOMOS will give you daily, step-by-step instructions on what to do so that you can focus on getting comfortable with the skills in this new way of teaching. If you have been at it for awhile, SOMOS will give you culture-rich materials that you can incorporate into your instruction, adding in your own unique flair. And with the new school year comes new beginnings! What better time to jump straight in than now!

Sharing current events from around the Spanish speaking world is an easy way to incorporate culture into your curriculum. EL MUNDO EN TUS MANOS is a bi-weekly publication that gives you five summaries of recent news stories in easy-to-understand Spanish. Maris Hawkins and I work together to find stories of significance and of interest to the range of students that you have in your classes.


Each issue includes the following resources:

  1. 5 news stories from the Spanish speaking world, written in Spanish and provided in 3 versions (see below)
  2. Suggested authentic resources for further exploration
  3. Activities/suggested activities for each news story
  4. a print-ready, formatted PDF version of each version of the articles
  5. a projectable, editable version of each article

Each article is provided in three versions:

  • a detailed version with glossed vocabulary
  • an advanced version without glossed vocabulary
  • a digest/summary version designed for students in their first semester of studying Spanish

Grab the Semana Santa, Cinco de mayo, Winter traditions, and Hispanic Heritage Month bundles while they're on sale August 20!


Have you recently decided to give comprehension based teaching a try, or are you trying but don't feel like you have any tools to support the transition? I put together this Comprehension based teaching starter pack to set you up for success with a range of resource types that will give you the confidence you need to succeed.

I love games because my students love games. Whether you are looking for an input-friendly way to play BINGO (school supplies, comparisons, or estar + location) or want to give your students an experience that they will love to hate with Grudgeball or the Unfair Game, I've got games galore!
