Below are some ways you can use these bug flashcards in Spanish.
In this section, I am going to discuss fun ways you can use and reuse these bug flashcards in Spanish.
First and foremost, print our your flashcards.
Next, cut them out and laminate them.
Then, you can use them in some fun ways, like the ways I will list below!
- Create a print rich envoirnment by placing these around the house. Add adhesive magnets to the back of the laminated flashcards and hang them on your fridge or washer.
- Print out multiple sets and work on sequences and patterns with your preschoolers!
- One of my favorite activities is to print off two sets and use them as a memory 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!
- Another fun activity is sorting. For instance, you could sort these spring flashcards by animals/insects, weather, and clothing objects/ accessories.
- 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 word.
- 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 card.
- Lastly, you could cut the cards in half and use them as puzzles by having your child match the words and images with their correct halves.
- Page 4 and 5- Cuenta y Marca math pages.
Have your child count each of the bugs in each box and mark the correct number of bugs. This activity will not only help with counting skills, but also with number recognition AND fine motor skills as your child colors in the circles.
Make sure after counting each bug, you have your child repeat the name of the bug as well. Repetition is GREAT for language learning.
- Page 6: El escape fine motor scissor or tracing practice.
With scissors, or if the page is laminated, a dry-erase marker, have your child color cut/trace the lines to help the bees escape from the garden.
Page 7: Deletreemos spelling and tracing.
Help your child hold a pencil correctly and have them trace the dashed letters to form the word of a bug. Once traced, sound out the letters and syllables of the words in Spanish.

- Page 8: Cacemos insectos
Go on a nature scavenger hunt and see if your child can identify any of the bugs on the list.
Talk with your child out loud about all that you see in Spanish.
If you child spots any of the insects on the scavenger hunt, have them mark the box of that insect and identify the name.
- Lastly, page 8: Mi diario visual
Talk about the insects you and your child found on the scavenger hunt. Let them be creative and draw some of the bugs they identified in the boxes of their visual diary.
Once they have drawn their images, ask them to talk about the images with you and see if they can use their new bug vocabulary in Spanish!
