St. Patrick’s Card Game

Let’s play a St. Patrick’s Card game to learn spanish and practice visual and memory skills.

Most children love to build, and puzzles are a great way to practice building skills. Building and composing activities promote hand-eye coordination, problem solving, memory and self-correcting skills.

One building and composing activity that is ideally for work tasks at school or during quiet time at home, is “composing by following a task card”. Children can independently learn about shapes, numbers, colors and letters.

For St. Patrick’s day, I created a game with task cards to practice color vocabulary, color sequence (in Spanish) and memory skills.

You can play two ways:

Activity 1: Children compose a clover by following the color sequence of the card.

Board game and task cards

Activity  2: Show a card for a few seconds. Children compose the clover that you show them by following the color sequence of the card.

Game cards.

The board and the cards are pretty easy to do, since all shapes are hearts (corazones).

You can always download our Día de San Patricio bundle, which includes this game as well as many other printables, activities and resources.

How cute are these Spring Spanish vocabulary cards?

Enough of the winter and let’s start to learn about ¡La Primavera! I am so happy Spring is almost here!  Enjoy this free vocabulary cards with short sentences in Spanish and English that Spanglishbaby shared with us via facebook.

In the Spring flowers bloom and we celebrate mom’s day
2. Las flores florecen en la primavera y el conejito de pascua llega.
Flowers bloom in the spring and the easter bunny arrives.

Spring thematic web in Spanish

Spring thematic webs make life easier for all teachers!

As a teacher, February is one of my favorite months. I enjoy planning, creating and designing Spring-related materials and themes! Spring is the perfect season to learn about life cycles; from animals to plants and foods, everything during the Spring begins a new cycle.

I always start the school year by creating a curriculum plan for each season. It helps me organize all the information I will be collecting throughout the school year. It is also a great way to track which information has been provided and therefore what children already know. Since I teach in a spanish immersion school, it is very important for me to created layers of vocabulary and general language knowledge. By creating thematic webs I am able to teach more efficiently each theme.

This is a map a created for a Spanish Immersion Kindergarten class last year for the Spring Season.

Writing a weekly lesson plan it is so much easier (I promise!),  if you have thematic web for each topic and the activities for the the theme already planned.
