Spanish Home Lessons: Sight Words (Yo, Veo)
Teaching little one to read in Spanish is definitely one of my priorities. I was thrilled to find My First Bilingual Little Readers: Level A: 25 Reproducible Mini-Books in English and Spanish That Give Kids a Great Start in Reading (Teaching Resources)
. I love that this book has pull-out pages that you can actually make copies of, and make them into mini-books you can color. The words used in the mini-books are simple, and high frequency words in both English and Spanish. A big plus for me, since little man prefers I read to him first in English then in Spanish. The wording in the mini-books also has rhyming, repetition, and helpful illustrations on themes such as, friendship, seasons, birthday, school, and pets.
Since we have already started working on our vowels
. We are now working on “sight words.” Although, I have to say that in Spanish, I guess we really don’t have “sight words” like in the English language. But I did find common or frequent used words that I can incorporate into little one’s daily Spanish learning routine. I found this great website with printables
they have the “teacher’s” version, and a “student’s” version where you can print two (booklets) on a sheet, and make two “sight word” booklets.
For little one’s Spanish lesson we read together the sentences in both Spanish and English from the mini-book. Making sure we emphasized the words “yo & veo.” As we were reading he wanted to color, and circle what he was actually “viendo” (veo).
As we were reading, I asked him in Spanish, “Cuántos lápices ves?” in Spanish, and I was sweetly surprised (again) on his response in Spanish “Cinco lápices.” Of course, I gave him a high-five! This was a short and simple Spanish lesson that we will practice again.
Do you have any resources that you use to teach your child another language? I would love to hear from you! Please comment, like, share or pin!
