Spanish Teaching Resources & Ideas
Learning Spanish as a second language in kindergarten and early elementary can be a blast for young learners. Whether you’re a homeschooling parent or an elementary teacher, here are five super fun educational strategies with hands-on examples to help kids get the hang of the basics. Many of these ideas can be adapted for middle school students as well.
Get moving with Total Physical Response (TPR):
Let’s get those bodies involved! TPR is a cool teaching method where we use actions and gestures to reinforce language learning. For instance, when teaching words like “correr” (to run) or “saltar” (to jump), have the kids act them out while saying the Spanish word. Want an extra dose of fun? Play Simon Says in Spanish, giving commands like “Levanta la mano” (Raise your hand) or “Salta en un pie” (Jump on one foot).
Jam out with songs and music:
Music is a language-learning superstar! Pick catchy Spanish songs with simple lyrics and fun tunes. Sing along together and encourage the kids to join in. You can find loads of Spanish children’s songs on YouTube or music streaming platforms. Want to start with the alphabet? This Spanish Alphabet song is super catchy!
Read Bilingual Books
Start with bilingual books that have the text in both English and Spanish. This allows students to compare and understand the meaning of words and phrases in both languages. Encourage them to read the Spanish parts aloud and gradually transition to reading more in Spanish as they become comfortable.
Dive into the culture:
Let’s take a trip to Spanish-speaking countries! Create a pretend Spanish marketplace with colorful fruits, veggies, and play money. The kids can take turns being shopkeepers and customers, using Spanish phrases like “¿Cuánto cuesta?” (How much does it cost?) and “Gracias” (Thank you). And why not celebrate Hispanic holidays? Do crafts, sing songs, and learn traditional dances to introduce the kids to the rich culture.
Game time with language games and activities:
Learning Spanish can be a total game-changer! Grab some flashcards with pictures of everyday objects and their Spanish names, and play memory or matching games. Or how about a Spanish scavenger hunt? The kids can find and label objects around the house or classroom with their Spanish names. Another cool idea is to have a “Spanish Day” where everyone speaks only Spanish for a set period. It’s a super fun way to practice the language!
Cultural Crafts: Introduce Spanish culture through arts and crafts. For example, make colorful papel picado (cut-paper banners) or create mini piñatas. Discuss the significance of these crafts in Hispanic culture while incorporating relevant Spanish vocabulary. It’s a hands-on way to learn about traditions and boost language skills.
