Printable Spanish Interactive Learning Folder

Interactive learning folder for Kindergarten

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.

  • Colors

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.
