Ways to use these family words in Spanish flashcards

Teachers, are you looking for fun ways to introduce family words in Spanish in your classroom?

If so, below I will offer a variety of ways you can use these flashcards to engage with your students in the classroom (or at home) and learn a little more about every student’s unique family.

  • Pull out a flashcards and repeat the family word in Spanish. Have your students repeat back after you. Then, ask your students to share something about that family member in Spanish. Make sure they repeat the vocabulary word, for example, mi madre se llama Elena. Or, mi madre tiene pelo rubio. Etc.
    Here are some conversation starters. You could talk about the names of family members, people’s ages, family member’s physical appearance, etc. Here are some example sentences. Mi abuelo tiene 60 años. Mi hermana tiene pelo largo. Mi tío es muy alto.

When you subscribe to receive these free family words in Spanish, you will also have access to free coloring pages for mamá, papá, abuelo y abuelita!

  • Practice the different grammar rules when learning these words. Talk about masculine nouns and feminine nouns and how adjectives will agree with the gender of each word. So, if you are talking about prima, an adjective will change at the end of the word. Mi prima es bonita. Make sure to go into singular form as well as the plural form. Asking about sibilings is a good way to work the plural form, ¿cuántos hermanos tienes? Yo tengo dos hermanos y una hermana.
  • Also mention possessive adjectives, mi padre, mis padres, mi prima, mis primos. You could ask a student a question, for example, ¿Cuántos años tiene tu hermana? Mi hermana tiene 7 años. Then have the rest of the students repeat back the answer using the proper posessive adjective. Su hermana tiene siete años.
  • You could read the book Un puñado de botones, a book about family diversity, and use the flashcards to talk about the different families in the book.
  • Show your students how to make a family tree with these flashcards. Then, encourage your students to draw their own family tree.

  • Have your students bring in a family picture. Then, draw a card from a pile and have your student point to their picture if that family member is featured in the picture.
  • For a fun project, your students can make a collage with different family members and share their collage with the class. speaking only in Spanish, of course.

  • Print out multiple sets of these family words in Spanish and work on sequences and patterns with your preschoolers!
  • The best way to memorize words is to print off two sets and use them as a memory matching game. This activity is perfect for younger children to practice language development and memorization skills to connect the spoken word to the image. Make sure every time you flip over a card, you say the name of what’s on it!
  • You could also play a fun game by having your child stand on the opposite side of the room as you, or even better outside. First, shuffle the flashcards. Then, lift a flashcard and show your child. Lastly, if they guess it right, they can take a step or hop forward! If they mess up, a step backward! Will they make it to where you are?
  • You could play a bilingual game and say the version in English. Have your child repeat it in Spanish and vice versa.
  • You could place the flashcards face up on a table and see how fast your child can recognize the Spanish family vocabulary.
  • Another fun way is to play Slapjack by placing all of the flashcards face down on a table. Say a word on the list and have your child flip the cards over until they find the correct family word.
  • For reading practice, you could cut the cards in half and use them as puzzles by having your child use their little fingers to match the new words and images with their correct halves.
