Strike a Chord: Gift card winners & music for Spanish class

Screenshot 2018-07-31 21.57.27

I got so excited this summer when I heard To’ My Love by Bomba Estéreo. It is SO catchy and I know it will be a great song to welcome them back to the classroom… and that’s just what music does! It welcomes them back every day. It is a piece of their world that is a piece of ours as well! Who doesn’t love music?

As we prepared for the Back to School sale from TPT this week, some of my very best friends and mentors and I shared some of our favorite songs to use with students as a way to strike a chord of community in the classroom this year! We also offered a contest!


As part of the post series, we ran a giveaway! Together we are offering $200 in gift cards to Teachers Pay Teachers to help teachers get the materials they need to feel confident generating comprehensible input from songs.

To help you stay CONNECTED with these great teacher authors, you’re going to have to go on a little scavenger hunt to see if you are one of our NINE lucky winners!

The winners will be posted at random times throughout the day on Sunday and Monday, August 5-6 (there might be a slight delay because Kara is currently exploring Colombia with her hubby…#sojealous…so be patient if there is a delayed announcement!).


…and look for the posts announcing the winners!

I get the pleasure of announcing that Jana Schaffner wins one of the $50 TPT gift cards!!! Congratulations, Jana! Thank you for playing! Just contact Martina to claim!
