Coloring Sheets Help Reinforce Vocabulary

Coloring sheets are an effective way to reinforce vocabulary and learn Spanish phrases. Children enjoy using crayons, which is an age-appropriate activity. The results can be assembled into a book or hung on walls, to provide lots of review.

Pictures provide yet another association to help teach children Spanish.

When you teach children Spanish, comprehending conversation and speaking are very natural and easy at a young age. We do not promote teaching young children to read Spanish. Rather, put the effort into conversation skills.

For children who are just learning to read English, it can be confusing and counterproductive to bring in another language. For example, the h in the word hola is silent however, it is pronounced in hello.

Older children (10 and up) who are solid English readers, can then quickly learn to read Spanish. So don’t use our sheets to teach young children to read Spanish, you can read the phrases and then ask your child to repeat.

Promoting Fluency

Learning Spanish phrases helps children think in Spanish, rather than translating each word. The key to fluency is to think in Spanish.

In addition to coloring, singing, dramatic play, and watching Spanish DVD’s also help teach children Spanish and encourage them to think in the language.
