Ideas for Class

Spanish Colors Lesson. Choose two colors then hold up an object saying the color; i.e., hold up blue marker and say ‘azul’. Point to you then say the word. Next, point to the students for them to repeat. Say ‘muy bien’ then continue the repetition until you are ready to move on to the second color.  Example, say ‘azul’ while holding up the color then point to the students to repeat ‘azul’. When ready choose another color like ‘anaranjado’ and ask students to repeat, using your hand motions. Switch back and forth while students practice listening and repeating the colors in Spanish. You can also hold up a color and ask ‘es azul o anaranjado’ (is this blue or orange). I generally use a children’s Spanish board book for my prop. Some of the other questions I eventually incorporate into a color lesson include ‘qué color es – what color is this’ or ‘Y este – and this’.

Shapes in Spanish. To teach shapes you can use shapes from your class to pass out to students they say to them ‘quién tiene un círculo – who has a circle’ then ask students to raise their hands if that is that shape they have. Repeat this with ‘triánglo, cuadro and rectángulo’.

Describe your toy. To practice using adjectives to describe an object you can choose something like a stuffed animal to describe using adjectives like ‘es suave – it’s soft, no es duro – it’s not hard, es mullido – it’s fluffy, es pequeño – it’s small, es mediano – it’s medium, no es grande – it’s not big, es rugoso – it’s fluffy’. Question words to use with students include ‘Cómo es – what is it like’

Simon Says Body Parts. For this activity you can use a simple Simon Says game along with students drawing a monster image.

  • toca la cabeza – touch the head
  • toca la nariz – touch the nose
  • muestra la lengua – show the tongue
  • abre la boca – open the mouth
  • cierra la boca – close the mouth
  • abre los ojos – open the eyes
  • cierra los ojos – close the eyes
  • levanta las manos – raise the hands
  • baja las manos – lower the hands
  • levántate – stand up
  • siéntate – sit down
  • agachate – bend down/over
  • levanta el pie – raise the foot
  • baja el pie – lower the foot
  • da vuelta – turn around
  • gira a la izquierda – turn to the left
  • gira a la derecha – turn to the right
  • anda un paso – take a step
  • para – stop
  • camina por la puerta – walk to the door
  • ven aquí – come here
  • corre en un círculo – run in a circle

Body Monster Image: Another activity to learn body parts is to ask students to draw a funny monster with any body part the want to use then ask the students to use vocabulary to describe.

  • tiene – he/she has
  • no tiene – he/she doesn’t have
  • un ojo – an eye
  • cinco ojos – five eyes
  • una boca – a mouth
  • dos orejas – two ears
  • un nariz – a nose
  • cinco manos – five hands

Animals. I like to use this activity with kindergarten students. After practice repeating the animal vocabulary in Spanish you can ask students what ‘what is this’ then make an animal sound.

  • vaca -cow (mu mu mu mu)
  • pavo – turkey (gluglú gluglú)
  • gallo – rooster (kikirikí)
  • burro – donkey (ii-aah)
  • oveja – sheep (bee mee)
  • pato – duck (cuac cuac)
  • perro – dog (guau guau)

You can also use plastic farm animals as props to practice saying the words in Spanish. One activity students like to do is sit in a circle with a small animal figure, passing it around behind their backs with the teacher asking ‘quién tiene/who has’ then say the animal in Spanish

  • Quién tiene la vaca – who has the cow
  • Quién tiene la gallina – who has the chicken

Around the World: Use this game to review any vocabulary. Ask students to stand up with to answer say the meaning of a word. If the students gets the word correct the student remains standing and it’s the next person’s turn. Students that miss the word must sit down. This is also a good activity to use with older students to learn the Spanish speaking countries in Alphabetical order.

FLES Spanish Activities

¡Bienvenidos! Welcome to MES Spanish!

My name is Sra Frey and I am excited to be working with you this year. Learning Spanish can be very fun, and my goal is to make this a memorable and enjoyable experience. In the class students learn how to say things in Spanish like greetings, numbers, alphabet, days of the week, months, weather, food, family, hobbies, describing people, house, around town and other topics.

Goals

Elementary Spanish is an introduction to the basic principles like letters, numbers, phonics, writing and basic conversation skills as well as cultural aspects; i.e., holidays, traditions and daily living. Our first goal is to help students learn to communicate using the Spanish language by connecting language with cultures to create a more well-rounded view of the world that is tolerant and knowledgeable of the Spanish speaking world. But most importantly, it’s our goal to have fun! Learning through dance, song and game is an excellent way to learn a language. Sharing in the fun and learning can help motivate students to become life-long learners.

 

Requirements

I only ask that students always give me their best effort and have a positive attitude in class. No one will be left out in my class. All students will be able to learn from a variety of activities and at their own pace. Students will always be uplifted and celebrated for their participation and their enthusiasm. Learning a language is very rewarding and I intend to make this a memorable time. I just ask for my students to actively participate in the class, pay attention, express themselves in Spanish and have fun.

Resources

If you have access to a phone or computer and internet you may want to frequent this site to practice your Spanish. If you have a resource to suggest please post a comment at the bottom of this blog.  I would love to hear what you have to share!
