Teaching Spanish Week 3: Focus words for the week.

Each week I run my oldest daughters (age 6) Spanish lesson alongside my youngest daughters (age 2) letter of the week theme. Week 3 we focused on words that started with the letter C. Therefore I made my oldest daughter a poster that focused on the name of each animal and food item in Spanish. I also made a simple matching activity that goes along with the poster. I placed both within my daughters Spanish binder to reuse and review throughout our Spanish unit.

Teaching the color grey in Spanish.

To teach my children (ages 2 and 6) Spanish I have been using a week by week method. Each week I introduce a new focus color. For the color grey I made a Spanish/English grey color poster and a matching worksheet to go along with it. I placed the sheets within my daughters Spanish Binder to be used as a review throughout our Spanish unit. By placing it within a binder sheet my daughter is able redo the matching activity as often as she likes.

Teaching Spanish Week three: The number is 3 and the shape is an oval.

I made a coloring page and a shape tracing activity written both in Spanish and English to help teach my daughters the words for three and oval in Spanish. Since I myself am not fluent in Spanish I write sentences out in English as well for a quick reference. That way I can easily tell my daughters what it says in English.

My youngest (age 2) enjoyed coloring the page.
Placed with my oldest daughters Spanish binder.

Spanish Week 2: The shape is a circle and the number is two.

Teaching Spanish to young kids week 2 the shape was a circle and the number was two. I made a coloring page in which I wrote a simple sentence both in Spanish and English that way it would be a simple teaching tool to use for someone such as myself that isn’t fluent in Spanish. I also made a simple circle tracing page that also is written both in Spanish and English. I placed the pages within my daughters Spanish binder to use as review.

My oldest daughter practiced writing letters on the coloring page.
Placed within a pocket protector to reuse throughout the week and later for review.

Teaching Spanish Week 2: Focus words for the week.

To introduce my oldest daughter (age 6) to Spanish I created a lesson plan that corresponds with my youngest daughters (age 2) preschool lessons. The letter of the week for week 2 was Bb. Therefore I made a Spanish/English poster of words that started with the letter Bb in English. The Spanish/English poster has each word written in both Spanish and English beneath the picture. At my daughters age I don’t expect them to remember all the words in Spanish. I tend to pick one word from the poster as the word of the week. Week 2 the word was oso (bear) in Spanish. I also made a matching worksheet to go along with the poster. Both sheets I placed within my daughter’s Spanish binder.

Spanish for young learners Week 1

In order to teach my oldest daughter (age 6) Spanish I paired it to go along with my youngest daughter’s (age 2) preschool lesson plans. Week 1 consisted of Letter Aa, the number one, the color red, and the shape of a heart. That way it wouldn’t be an entirely separate lesson in which we’d need to chisel out more time in our day for. Since I paired it along with my youngest daughter’s lessons I used all the Aa words we practiced in English for week one as our main focus words to being to recognize in Spanish. Essentially our word of the week was apple since I don’t expect my oldest to remember every word we’ve talked about in Spanish. Since I myself am not fluent in Spanish and am learning as we go I make sure to place a translation in English that way I don’t have to stress myself out if I forget what a word is.

Teaching Spanish Week 1: Focus words for the week.

My oldest daughter has been wanting to learn Spanish recently I decided to start a more structured approach to practicing Spanish that pairs alongside my youngest daughters preschool lessons. Therefore for week one I made a simple poster and matching picture to the correct word activity that represented words that started with Aa in English. My goal is to expose my daughter age 6 to several words a week, although I don’t expect her to remember them all therefore the word of the week for week one was apple.

Placed in a pocket sheet within my daughters Spanish/English binder.

Teaching the color red in Spanish.

My daughters are currently ages two and six. With my youngest I have been working on a more structured learning process in which we focus on a different color each week among other subjects. My oldest I’ve been trying to expose her to the language of Spanish therefore I decided it felt fitting to work their learning units together.

For the color red I made a color poster in Spanish and English for my oldest. That way I could introduce her to several words in the Spanish language in order to gradually expand her Spanish vocabulary. I also made a simple worksheet for her to match the picture to the correct word.

I placed the sheets of paper within dry erase pockets that go inside a binder that way as we move through our Spanish learning series my daughter can go back and review everything she has learned, and also re-use each activity as often as she wants.

The color is red poster in Spanish and Engligh.
Match the picture to the correct word worksheet in Spanish.
