Here is a Spanish Valentine’s Day poem:
Nunca digas nunca
Tampoco digas siempre
Pero dime que me amas
Como nunca y para siempre.
(Never say never, Never say forever, But tell me you love me, For forever.)
The American custom of Valentine’s Day has been adopted in Spain, as in many other countries. On Valentine’s Day, husbands give their wives flowers (usually roses) and unmarried couples exchange gifts.
Why not make a ‘chatterbox’ finger game to practise vocabulary and speaking to each other in Spanish? Here are some suggestions for things that can be written inside the ‘chatterbox’:
Te quiero. (I love/like you.)
No te quiero. (I don’t love/like you.)
¿Quieres salir conmigo? (Will you go out with me?)
¿Quieres casarte conmigo? (Will you marry me?)
¿Cómo te llamas? (What is your name?)
Pupils could use any Spanish vocabulary they have learned for the words on the outside flaps, eg colours, numbers etc.
More ideas for Valentine’s Day and other festivals throughout the year can be found in Spanish Festivals and Traditions for KS2.
