Are you teaching your kids in Spanish? Or do you work with native Spanish speaking children? This activity is a fun and simple idea for teaching colors in Spanish to kids.
Last year I published a winter printable called Color the Snowman Buttons. It is a simple, snowman-themed printable to help kids work on color recognition. A reader who teaches Spanish to preschoolers recently wrote to ask if I would be willing to offer a Spanish version of the printable that she could use with her students. Although I’m fluent in Spanish, I’m not a native speaker. So I took her up on her offer to translate the document. And today I’m pleased to make Colorea los botones del muñeco de nieve available to my readers in Spanish!
Teaching colors in Spanish is a fun way to introduce the language to non-native Spanish speakers. And for people who work with native Spanish speaking children, this activity provides an avenue for helping preschoolers with their colors. So I am hopeful that this will be a resource to those of you who are teaching native Spanish speakers as well as those of you teaching non-native speakers who are learning Spanish.
Because the correct Spanish word for some colors varies from region to region, I included a third page with additional brown and purple snowmen using alternative Spanish words for those colors. Below is a sneak peak at the pages included in this download:
For ideas on how to use this printable, please see my post documenting when my kids completed the English version of Color the Snowman Buttons.
