Ideas for language learning at home
- Teach someone in your family the songs and phrases you know.
- Make dominoes and pairs games to practise vocabulary.
- Make models and pictures to practise vocabulary.
- Make up conversations between your toys, Lego figures etc.
- Record yourself speaking, singing and dancing.
- If your grownups are good with technology, you could visit bookcreator.com to make your own free ebook online or download Chatterpix kids from the app store to animate pictures or objects and make them talk aloud. Then you can teach me how to do it!
Also keep using the other amazing resources we have:
Espresso – https://central.espresso.co.uk - then the username and password provided by the school. Click on Key Stage 2 button and find Languages. There are two Spanish modules – ¡Vamos! and ¡Vamos a continuar! There is also the Spanish Resource box.
Make sure you check out the talking dictionary and watch videos to help you with your listening and speaking.
RockaLingua – both with your login and the free site, as well as YouTube songs.
Great games and rhymes.
Simple, well- structured units of work.
This is my favourite site, as it has great ideas for parents and teachers.
There are also lots of lovely videos on YouTube
This Easter you could listen to the song Los pollitos and download the book to go with it: www.spanishplayground.net/los-pollitos-dicen-lyrics-printable-coloring-book/
Check out their other free books: www.spanishplayground.net/free-printable-spanish-books/
This site is amazing!
You can use it as a dictionary by changing the search button to Spanish in the Search Pictograms box. Put in a word and it will give you some symbols and sound buttons that you can download if you want to.
You can also make your own dominoes and games or download resources from teachers.
In school we use YouTube all the time. Some reliable channels are:
Super Simple Español

Felices Pascuas – Happy Easter
- Make yourself some white bunny ears and an orange carrot (zanahoria).
Have fun jumping around to this song:

- Make 8 Easter eggs (huevos de Pascua) out of card. Practise counting them with the bunny (conejo), then hide them behind (detrás) things and get your family to look for them.
