Interactive Spanish Notebook

I love interactive notebooks as much as the next teacher. I think they give students a lot of great information to reflect on when studying for a test, as well as when they look back on what they learned for the year. It’s also great to show parents and administors as well. But, more importantly, interactive notebooks are great for keeping students involved in the lessons!

I was looking for a good interactive spanish notebook for my friend for her daughter that she homeschools, but I couldn’t find any. I decided to make one myself. Growing up in Texas, we always spoke Spanish. My mother was fluent in Spanish and made sure we all knew how to speak it. She felt, like I do, that learning new languages is really important, as well as fulfilling.

Here are a few of the pages from my new Interactive Spanish Notebook:

Thanksgiving Color by Numbers in Spanish

Thanksgiving in Spanish Thanksgiving is coming up this month in the United States! A while back we posted a Thanksgiving Color by Numbers in French; for today’s post, here is a Spanish language version, with numbers and colors in Spanish.

To use this free worksheet, students should look at the picture of the Thanksgiving turkey and take note of the numbers on each piece of the Thanksgiving turkey to be colored in. They should then find the name of the number in Spanish in the color key, and then translate the Spanish color name for the associated number in order to figure out which color that they need to use to color that piece of the picture. By using this activity students can practice both numbers and color names in Spanish.

Spanish numbers

The numbers in Spanish from one to ten are:

  • One: Uno
  • Two: Dos
  • Three: Tres
  • Four: Cuatro
  • Five: Cinco
  • Six: Seis
  • Seven: Siete
  • Eight: Ocho
  • Nine: Neuve
  • Ten: Deis

And the number zero is: Cero.

Spanish colors

The colors in Spanish used in this activity are:

  • Red: Rojo
  • Black: Negro
  • Brown: Marrón
  • Blue: Azul
  • Grey: Gris

Using the Color by Numbers pages

When using the Spanish color by numbers worksheet, it is good practice to have your children or students repeat the Spanish names of the words they are coloring while they are working on the activity worksheet. This helps to reinforce the translations, and to get the names of the colors “into their heads” while they are looking at the actual colors on the worksheets.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your class!

Using the Color by Numbers pages

When teaching a foreign language using copywork pages, it is a good idea to have your children or students repeat the words they are copying while they are completing the activity pages. Reciting the numbers in their heads is fine, but for best results students should speak (or whisper) the words aloud. This may not be possible in a classroom setting, but perhaps it can be accomplished while studying at home after school or in a homeschool environment.
