Froggy Se Viste: Clothing Materials in Spanish

During the winter months, I introduce vocabulary related to clothing. It is a meaningful and practical way to teach not only clothing vocabulary but to also to talk about the weather and the seasons.

Froggy Se Viste

To introduce new vocabulary, I always use a children’s book or song to connect grammar and context to the theme. One of my favorite books is Froggy Se Viste by Jonathan London. The story is engaging and repetitive making the perfect combination to learn Spanish in context. That said, I modify the story emphasizing the sentence structures I want my students to learn.

 

 

Here is a compilation of clothing materials in Spanish I created as well as other fun materials and lessons I found online.

4 Ideas for a Preschool Farm Theme

One of my favorite themes to teach during the Spring season is the farm. Most children know some of the animals that live on a farm, but do they know why they live on a farm, who takes care of them and the benefits the farm provides us with. Here are some ideas for a preschool farm theme to teach children in Spanish (or English).

The concepts are endless and valuable to learn. Here are 4 farm concept ideas to share with your preschoolers. Keep in mind that I teach Spanish immersion so all of my ideas start from the assumption that must of my students are English native speakers.

Four Farm Concepts to Explore in Class

blog farmanimals 225x300 4 Ideas for a Preschool Farm Theme

Farm theme ideas for preschool in Spanish

  1. Farm vocabulary (practice the articles with the nouns; la vaca, la oveja, los pollitos).
  2. Farm animal products (practice with a complete sentence; la vaca nos da leche, la oveja nos da lana, la gallina nos da huevos, ¿qué nos da el cerdo?).
  3. Food in the farm. Farm animals eat plants, fruits, vegetables, hay, corn, and oats ( this can be a taught in a different lesson about seeds, plants & flowers).
  4. Transportation and vehicles in the farm. Horses are farm animals that can be used as transportation (math concepts can be used to teach about distance and traveling time; lejos, cerca, largo, corto, rápido, lento).

 

 

All of these concepts can be practiced through a variety of learning centers and activities at school or at home. From songs, rhymes and storybook, to math activities, crafts, and even cooking activities.

Use an activity map (un mapa temático) to plan the class activities and to record your ideas!

Free President’s Day Bingo in Spanish

I love to play bingo with my young students. It is an easy way to have fun while learning new vocabulary. I encourage children to use full sentences when playing bingo.

This is how I play:

Maestra: ¿Quién tiene la cabaña de tronco?

Niño(s) con la cabaña de tronco: Yo tengo la cabaña de tronco.

Niño(s) sin la cabaña de troncos: Yo no tengo la cabaña de tronco.

When my students use full sentences, I can see how proud they feel of their verbal Spanish skills. It also helps them practice simple sentence structure.

Ready to play? Just print, laminate! You can also print twice each board and cut out the cards to play a memory game.

Materials Needed:

– Print boards (there are three different boards).

– Print the call out cards.

– Laminate the boards and the cards or simply use a sheet protector.

– You need six tokens or pennies per player.
