La ropa – The Clothes

In some of our Spanish clubs this term with children from Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 we have been learning some vocabulary related with clothes.

Vestido – Dress

Jersey – Jumper

Pantalón – Trousers

Pijama – Pijama

Sombrero – Hat

Bolso – Bag

Camiseta – T-Shirt

Falda – Skirt

Chaqueta – Jacket

Zapatos -Shoes

Camisa -Shirt

Calcetines -Socks

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.

The train game – Come and Play with Pipo

You can now read the learning objectives and how to play to this great game “the train game” available at Come and Play with Pipo.

Learning objectives: identify the letter of the alphabet on the keyboard from words associated with an image. The children will start to use the keyboard.

How to play? :

It is a fantastic game, the little ones will learn new Spanish words however at the same they are practising and learning to type words using the keyword.

A word appears on the screen and Pipo ask you to write its letters, pressing on the keyboard (recommended) or in the screen.  It is not necessary to press them in the correct order, although it is recommended.

To help in recognizing and associating the image with the word, a drawing appears in the top left-hand corner of the screen.
