Learn Spanish for Kids By Being Active
To learn Spanish for Kids, try to incorporate language learning through doing into your day. When your child is getting dressed, learn the words for clothes. When it is time for breakfast, learn the silverware, plates and breakfast foods. The next time you visit the zoo, learn the names of the animals.
To learn Spanish fluently, use familiar activities but do them in Spanish. Play games that your child is familiar with, and sing familiar songs.
Try teaching verbs by doing them -- walking, standing, sitting, running, singing and jumping. You can introduce conjugations by using stuffed animals and dolls. Keep a special set of toys that "only speak" the Spanish.
Play our stuffed animal game, dance and freeze or our right left line dance from Spanish in a Basket.
Spanish in a Basket
Have your child make "Teddy Bear" sit, and then ask him or her say "I sit" in the focus language. Then make "Bunny" sit and say "he sits" in the focus language; you and your child can make Teddy and Bunny sit and say together, "we sit". Bunny can jump and your child can make Teddy say "he jumps" in the focus language.
If you have a chance to travel with your children, go for it! It is the best way to learn. My children thoroughly enjoyed traveling to Europe and they were able to appreciate why they are learning languages.
