Spanish Resources for Kids

2 Comments

 

Thanks to technology and the worldwide web we have at our fingertips tons of resources on raising a bilingual child.  For instance, in my case I am raising my child to be bilingual in Spanish.  When I started our language learning adventure I scoured the web for resources, and many of the links listed here are blogs that I follow and admire.  With that being said,  I’m truly excited to share with you my favorite links on Spanish resources for kids.

I’ve broken down this post in various sections: Songs in Spanish, vowels, preschool, early elementary and elementary for easy access. Read More…

Spanish Easter Scavenger Hunt {Free Printable}

No Comments

Looking for a non-traditional Easter scavenger hunt in Spanish? Look no further!

As in year’s past, little one will have an Easter basket by his bed when he wakes up.   He will also be getting a special letter from the Easter bunny himself but in Español!

It’s an Easter scavenger hunt with a twist! He has to solve some riddles in Spanish, and when he does he needs to look for his answer, and so on.  Since he loves animals the Spanish riddles are about animals.

The animals will be by each egg, and inside the egg he will have a small toy (we’re cutting back on the sweets); or you can cut out the riddles and place them in the egg.

This is such a fun activity to do with your bilingual kids in Spanish!

Sopa de Hortalizas (Coleccion Dos Lenguas) Reading Fair Project

No Comments
I am constantly looking for Spanish or Bilingual children’s book for my little man so I was delighted to find Sopa de Hortalizas (Coleccion Dos Lenguas) (Spanish Edition) (affiliate link) by Puerto Rican author Angeles Molina Iturrondo.

Animal books are my son’s favorite, and I love that this book is a two in one. Presented in both English and Spanish with discussion questions for parents. 

This book is a favorite in our home. It’s the story of  Mrs. Rabbit’s trip to the orchard to get some carrots to make some soup. On her way to the orchard she comes across her forest friends who give her advice on what other vegetables to add.  In the end, she makes a yummy vegetable soup to feed her bunnies, and forest friends. 

For this year’s reading fair project my son actually picked this book.  He was so excited, and knows the story by heart. 

When looking for activity ideas for this book I found one geared towards kindergarten age students. I’m sure it can be adapted for 1st graders, too.
