Spanish for Kids

Hi!  It’s Saturday, January 29, 2011 and time for Foreign Language at ClickSchooling!

Recommended Website:
Spanishtown: Spanish for Kids

Age Range: 6-10  (Grades 1 – 4, with parental assistance and supervision)

This Google ad-supported website provides interactive exercises that teach young children Spanish vocabulary from basic to intermediate level. As you do the activities you can listen to the correct pronunciation of the words by a native Spanish speaker.

When you get to the site you’ll see a preview menu by grade level from 1-4. Click on any one and a new page opens with a broader menu of choices that includes activities for learning:
*Vocabulary – Learn to say colors, numbers, shapes, parts of the body, animals, methods of transportation, words for family members, weather, clothing, food, holidays, and basic conversational sentences.

*Counting – Learn to say numbers from 1-100 along with some basic math terminology.

*Grammar – Learn to say some verbs in present and past tense. 

To compliment and reinforce the vocabulary you will also find a selection of wordfind puzzles, crosswords and matching activities.

This is not a comprehensive language course. It’s a simple way to introduce learning the Spanish language, or to practice skills that you’ve already acquired. Parents that don’t speak Spanish can learn right alongside their children. 

The site offers downloads to tests, lesson plans and learning sheets for classroom teachers that can be tweaked for use at home. 

NOTE: “Spanish for Kids” is part of a larger website. I did NOT review other parts of the site. The kids’ section requires adult assistance to navigate.  The site has random ads and Google advertisements that if clicked on, will lead to outside websites so PARENTS, AS ALWAYS, SHOULD PREVIEW THE SITE AND SUPERVISE USE.
