Printable Spanish Interactive Learning Folder

July 20, 2018 2 Comments

We are introducing Spanish this year to our kids. Though my husband and I took Spanish in high school, we are planning to learn right alongside them. 

I’ve been asking around about how to teach a foreign language to children. From what I’ve read, submersion is always best, but basic vocabulary and phrase-learning is a great place to start.

Charlotte mason’s approach to teaching foreign language was primarily oral lessons of phrases. A phrase would be introduced than repeated while associating it with a motion.  I found a program that follows her method and purchased it for our Spanish year 1.  (Cherrydale Press)

It covers quite a bit of ground and comes with listening files for correct pronunciation. However, I noticed that it doesn’t introduce a lot of the basic vocabulary or common-use phrasing. (It feels a bit antiquated to me.)

Therefore, I decided to make a Spanish Interactive Learning Folder to supplement our foreign language studies along with a book of Spanish songs I picked up at a local thrift store and these Spanish Alphabet Cards.

 

 

Spanish Interactive Learning Folder

 

My kids love hands-on, colorful learning so I started there.  The Learning folder is 27 pages of interactive, vocabulary-building exercises with pronunciation included for each page.

 

 

Age Appropriateness

 

We will be using for our kids ages six and under. Although, I think it would work great as resource to supplement any introductory Spanish course for the elementary grades.

 

 

 

Topics Covered

The folder includes:

  • Colors
  • Numbers 1-10
  • Counting
  • Counting by 10s
  • Spanish Alphabet
  • Seasons
  • Days of the week
  • Months of the year
  • Pets
  • Farm animals
  • Fruits and Vegetables
  • Common greetings and good manners
  • Body parts
  • Clothes
  • Common household/bedroom/kitchen items
  • Modes of transportation
  • Continents
  • Common action verbs
  • Songs

 

NOTE: You can view a video of the entire contents of this folder HERE.

 

Assembly

 

Once again, I tried to make this durable to withstand at least a year-full of use from my young children. Therefore, I laminated each page and used clear velcro to attach the movable pieces. Then I purchased a heavy-duty notebook to put the pages in.

It’s a little more work upfront, but it is well worth it in the long run. ALSO, I made use of a small paper cutter this time around, which saved me a TON of cutting time.

 

Assembly materials used:

 

NOTE: If you wanted to use this for a group of kids or a classroom setting, a three-ring, easel binder would be another great presentation option.

    Both me and my SO took different languages, Spanish, French, but so many years later and not practicing them, it seems like we didn’t retain much of it (bummer)>
