La Nochevieja Lesson Plans in Spanish
Beginner (Level 1), Novice (Levels 1-2)
21 Pages

This lesson plan bundle is appropriate for Spanish 1 students and beyond. It contains three versions (with varying levels of detail and range of vocabulary) of a Spanish-language reading about the Spanish tradition of eating 12 grapes at midnight on December 31.

In addition to the three readings, it contains

  • a Wordoku puzzle with Nochevieja vocabulary
  • comprehension questions
  • discussion questions
  • a writing activity
  • several video-viewing activity descriptions
  • an #authres Infograph reading activity with worksheet
  • instructions for a class competition
  • projectable versions of the readings in PPT and PDF format (Slides compatible)
  • daily warm-up prompts for 4 days
  • answer keys
  • complete daily lesson plans for everything
  • Paperless/digital versions of each student worksheet


  • This resource is a great launching point to talk about superstitions and traditions, as well as leading into students making their own propósitos. Since there are multiple levels of readings, I use it with both Spanish 1 and Spanish 2.

  • My students really enjoying doing this because they learned a new tradition from a different country and it got them out from doing the normal boring stuff! :) Thank you!

  • I love using this resource in the first week after winter vacation. We use it to set goals for the year while making cultural comparisons.
