Los colores – colors lesson!

Los Colores

Learning the colors represents an important step towards enhancing Spanish language skills. “Los Colores” is a lesson that aims to help children learn all colors and enjoy a number of activities that will definitely help them understand everything in a better way while having fun. There are ten available activities to enjoy – to access them, children only have to click on one of the icons located in the main interface of the lesson.

coloract1The first activity, “Colors”, should be the first they access, as it teaches children the colors. Each color comes with a matching pen and its Spanish name written on the pen. The colors are presented gradually, and children will be able to properly pronounce them due to the fact that each color comes with an audio pronunciation. After all colors are presented, children will have to choose the correct color of the object that will be presented on the right side by clicking on the pen with the respective color.

coloract2Color Game” – “colorea las figuras” is an engaging activity that will allow children to deepen their knowledge about the colors. The activity requires them to color each object according to the name of the color presented below each one. To color them, children have to select the matching pen on the right side, then click on the object that needs to be colored in that particular shade.

coloract3Color Pages” – “páginas para colorear” is the following activity – as its name says, this activity involves ten coloring pages that present children each color, along with three objects that can be successfully colored using it and four texts: the Spanish name of the color, its syllables, its letters and, at the very bottom of each page, the English name of the color.

coloract4Word Search Puzzle”- “sopa de letras”- involves finding the Spanish name of each color in a difficult, yet extremely enjoyable word puzzle. Once children find a color, they have to click on the first letter, then advance to the last one. The color will be automatically marked as found.

coloract5Beenny’s Game” – “el juego de beenny” is the next activity; children have to guide bee Beenny through a labyrinth. To progress, they have to guide Beenny to each frog, then solve the puzzle they will be presented. The puzzle will present them with a color, and children have to select the correct letter to form its Spanish name. Once they do, Beenny will be able to advance towards the beehive.

coloract6Memory Game” – “juego de memoria” involves finding each matching pair by clicking on the cards. If children manage to find two matching pairs, the cards in question will disappear; if, on the contrary, they do not manage, the cards they have selected will turn upside down. The game will continue until they will find all pairs.

coloract7Music”- “canción de los colores” is probably the most engaging activity since children will be able to listen to a song that presents them all colors, along with various other objects that are colored with it. The song consists of both English and Spanish words, so that children will be able to sing along and have a lot of fun while learning Spanish.

coloract8Click-n-Match Pages”- “seleccione y empareje – actividad para imprimir” is an activity that permits children to match an object with its color in both Spanish and English. The pages can be printed several times by clicking on the print icon located on the right side. When printing, children can select whether to have fixed columns, included solution and a solved line by clicking on each button. To get a new printable, they only have to click on “New Printable.”

coloract9Dunk-a-pingu” – “el juego de pingu” requires children to first select a difficulty level, then write the Spanish name of each color according to the hints. To get a hint, children have to roll the mouse over the whale and they will see the color whose name they have to write. Once they know the color, they have to click on the letters that form the name of that color until the entire word is formed. They can advance to the next one by clicking “Next Word.”

coloract10Click-n-Match” – “seleccione y empareje” is the last game from the “Los Colores” lesson. To play the game, children have to match the English name of the colors with their Spanish one; first, they have to click on the Spanish name, and second, on the English one until all colors are matched.

 

 

Because we know the importance of this lesson, we created a new free coloring pages, you can print and laminate the number 1, so you can have this model for your class! And print the number 2 for the kids, so they can practice the colors and have fun, while they color the pencils!

Día del Padre – Spanish Father’s Day Cards

Father’s day is almost here! In a few days in, June 17th.  What a great idea to make a card for “el día del padre”. It’s good to say thanks and express your affection for your dad with a simple card made by you!

Moms, teachers, and children can select different messages such as “Thanks for being a great Dad” (gracias por ser un gran papá). Another is  “We love you Dad” (te amamos papá).

When you have more than 5 children in your classroom, you can personalize each card with their initials to print to avoid mixing the cards.

In this activity, the children learn Spanish because they practice the Spanish vocabulary, they can listen to the message in English and Spanish, they can color the cards, and they can have a fun time while building a beautiful card for Dad.

In addition, they can change the border, the graphic, the message in the card, and print in color or black and white and color them.

Lectura y dibujo con los minilibros!

Audio – mi mamá y yo

Los minilibros son un gran recurso para motivar al niño a practicar la lectura, ellos se divierten al colorear cada una de sus páginas y adicionalmente son un recurso muy bueno, para aprender un nuevo idioma.

Hicimos la prueba al imprimir uno de los minilibros “Mi mamá y yo”, lo grapamos y lo dejamos sobre la mesa. En la hora de la comida, los niños se sientan a comer cereal con leche. Hoy vieron algo diferente sobre la mesa! que es esto dijo Carlos? un minilibro, yo quiero colorearlo! dijo Esteban, y tomo los colores, cuando se disponía a colorear dijo pero que dice en cada página? Yo no sé leer todavía – Carlos dijo: si quieres te lo leo, si por favor, contesto Esteban. Carlos comenzó a leer en español y cuál fue nuestra sorpresa! leyó casi perfecto en español y Esteban entendió todo con los dibujos y la traducción en ingles que le leía su hermano. Al final de la lectura el pequeño Esteban coloreo el minilibro y lo único que dijo fue: “Mañana puedes imprimir otro?”.

Aprender divirtiéndose es muy buen método, lo invitamos a desarrollar esta actividad en su clase o en su casa con sus hijos. Sería interesante saber cómo los niños respondieron y participaron de esta actividad!

Gracias,

Mini books are a great new tool for kids to practice reading. With the mini books the kids would have so much fun while painting each of the pages of this book. Additionally is a good resource to learn a new language.

We made a test with our kids, the name of the mini book was “my mother and me“ in Spanish “mi mamá y yo”. We print, fold and put it on the table and sat the kids to dinner, and they were really surprise when they found something different on the table a BOOK!  My older kid Carlos asked right away: is this a mini book? WOW I want to color it now, said Esteban the little one, who was so happy; he joins us with colors and crayons. When he was ready to start he saw the letters of the story, and say sad “I don’t know how to read”. Carlos was so happy to be able to assist his brother and proudly say I can help you, I know how to read. We were amazed to find out that Carlos had no difficulty at all reading in Spanish, and relating to the translation in English. They finished the book with just one question: Can you print another mini book tomorrow please?

Learning while enjoying is a great educational tool. Onlinefreespanish invite you to use this activity in your home, class, or library with your children. Please feel more than welcome to share you’re your experiences with your children practicing this activity.
