Around the House in Spanish

This idea came to me while exchanging e-mails with Shannon from TeachingTinyTots

She was asking me when did I started teaching my daughter Spanish,
but since Spanish my first language,
I taught them from birth
So is never to early to start a second language
I offer her to help
specially now that my trip is coming
and I won't be able to do so many preschool activities with my little one
So we agreed on a few lists of things to start

  1. That is great. I am teaching my toddler Spanish. It is my Mom's first language. I learned English first, then Spanish.

    I made picture books with out of photos and pictures of things around the home. I would say the name for the item in Spanish showing my son the picture. I also placed a written label for each item in spanish under the photo/picture.

  2. what great ideas- I have been trying to learn spanish since jr high.. I can speak it...okay..but would like to be more fluent.

    I started introducing it to my kids and invited a friend of mine and her family ( who are from Columbia) to come to my house once a month for a Spanish only night. We play games, read stories, have a treat- and speak only in spanish! I am so grateful they are willing (And honestly I think they enjoy it as much as we do!) But it helps make our "study" of the language more practical.

  3. oh- I followed your link from the bookworm site- nice to meet you!

    I can see why your site has been honored with so many awards!
