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.

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.
