Camiseta – T-Shirt

Falda – Skirt

Chaqueta – Jacket

Zapatos -Shoes

Camisa -Shirt

Listen to the audio if you are unsure about the pronunciation of any of these words. Remember some of the children can remember more words than some others. It´s difficult for the children if you say to them “how do you say in Spanish “Shoes”?” however if you say the Spanish word to the children they tend to remember it better.

Sometimes they don´t know if you could perhaps show 3 pictures. For example “socks, shoes and skirt” Now ask your child to pick up “zapatos” Perhaps this time has done it better.

Remember we always do this by doing games and playing for that reason I am trying to avoid the direct question to the child. Last thing you want to hear is “I don´t know, I am not interest it I want to play with or…” Try to motivate your child “perhaps we can buy a “sombrero” on holiday!

A bit more difficult:

In our Spanish lessons we try to teach them numbers and colours and we try to check this quite often so quickly we can build some small sentences. “Dos chaquetas rojas” “Two red jackets”

I am not interested at this point to make things perfect. This is actually impossible.  Keep reading please! Why? Just say we sing numbers “1 to 10”

Uno, dos, tres, cuatro…

We practice colours and say that your child remember that “rojo” is “red” for this example.

So, the children have been learning the numbers, the colours and the items.

So now “two red jackets”  can get to many solutions for “them”. To be really honest “they” are the children in Year 2 with some Spanish background.

What is your answer?

1. Dos rojo chaqueta

2. Dos chaqueta rojo

3. Dos chaquetas roja

4. Dos chaquetas rojo

5. Dos chaquetas rojas

I am sure you realized the correct answer is “Dos chaquetas rojas”! I am now not going to start writing about masculine and femenine. Also singular and plural.

The main point here is that if I say to them “Dos chaquetas” they know I am talking about the two jackets, some of them perhaps they only catch “dos”. The beauty now is that if I say “rojas” most of them they will know that I am talking about something red. I did not said “rojo” This is not important at all at this point in time.

If you are a Spanish teacher and you are reading my post you know we need to try to talk and to say as many things as we can in the target language – Spanish to the children. Ideally will be all the class but this is actually extremely difficult to do in just one hour for the little ones (not bilingual children).

Although remember children they have got a lot of imagination. Use your hands, your body, use easy songs, read bilingual books, play games where short Spanish instructions are given. Make them write from time to time easy words (Spanish activities) make them repeat easy things every week you are with them.

This will help the infants to progress with this great MFL (Modern foreign languages) to the Juniors. Then they will be able then to develop a bit more about the language and get a bit more involved with easy grammar.

A child is not going to speak a language immediately. We can´t force a child to learn a language. We can help a child, we can stimulate him/her and this will also help him/her to develop some other curricular subjects.

Spanish Halloween song and Free tips to celebrate Bonfire in your class

How to give a Spanish lesson on Halloween.

October is the month for celebrating Halloween. This year the 31st October falls on Thursday and depends the area where you live the schools are open.

This is great if you have got class that day so you could have a special Halloween Spanish lesson.

However do not hesitate in do some of these activities during the rest of the week. This will break the routine and makes the vocabulary they learn relevant, which helps them to remember it more easily. You can teach some new Spanish words like calabaza, escoba, sombrero, araña, bruja, etc and some others.

Prepare your activities as much as you can. You can prepare puzzles for them to make or some cross words with the new Spanish words. I have just attached a very easy Spanish activity that you can print and use at any time during your Spanish lesson.

Take with you some Spanish flash cards with the relevant vocabulary. You can make it as easy or difficult you want depending the age and abilities of your groups.

If you have got little ones I am going to post here a song you can practise with them. They love it and the perfectly know it in English. La araña pequeñita The eensyweensy spider.

La araña pequeñita

Subió, subió, subió.

Vino la lluvia

Y se la llevó.

Salió el sol

Y todo lo secó,

Y la araña pequeñita

Subió, subió, subió.

Finally you could also decide to celebrate Bonfire night with fireworks oriented activities. You can explain that in Spain we have got a similar celebration called San Juán on the 24th of June. However for the little ones don´t waste much time here and do a funny game like the one I am now going to explain to you. You could hold different coloured straws, strings or even pencils.

Choose a colour and write its name on a piece of paper. Put it in your pocket. Each child in turn will push down one of the straws, strings or pencils while naming its colour. When one of the children has pushed down the chosen colour, you open your hand wide open while shouting P a t a p o o m and dropping all the remaining colours.

Important! Try to don´t lose the control in your class as you know children are getting over excited very quickly. Check that it was the right answer on the piece of paper. The child who guessed the right colour can take your place and you can play several times. Good game to revise the colours with the little ones.
