Teaching Spanish is rewarding, but it also takes a steady investment of time and energy. I hope this list of Spanish TpT stores from top teachers will make your life easier. All these teachers have shared free printables, so try the activities with your students or children at home.
We all understand the enormous amount of quality input kids need to learn Spanish. We also know it takes time, more than we have, to create and find enough material. The answer? Collaboration! Collaboration is the genius behind Teachers Pay Teachers, a platform that allows teachers to buy and sell their lessons and materials. These Spanish TpT stores have a wide range of resources for different levels.
I make many of my own materials, but I also use Spanish TpT stores on a regular basis. Although I love creating activities, it doesn’t make sense to spend hours making something that already exists and is available for a few dollars. Of course, we all have limited funds and have to decide to how much we can invest in materials, but I try to keep in mind that my time is valuable too.
Spanish TpT stores are an excellent resource for parents raising bilingual kids, as well as for teachers. Many families contact me about how to structure Spanish learning and where to find materials. If you are a parent supporting a school program or teaching your children at home, Spanish TpT stores have activities to make it easier and more fun.
There are dozens of Spanish TpT stores with materials for every grade and topic. You can find fabulous material, but it does take time to sort through the stores. Below you will find some of my favorite Spanish TpT stores from experienced teachers. I’ve also included sellers recommended by friends. I asked them all to describe their stores, and each of these teachers has also shared a free activity.
These teachers also write about their experiences and ideas on blogs and across social media. In addition to activities and strategies, you will find inspiration and support to make teaching more fun and rewarding. So, be sure to check out their blogs and look for them on your favorite social media platforms as well as visiting their Spanish TpT stores.
