Below are some ways you can use these zoo animals flashcards in Spanish.

In this section, I am going to discuss fun ways you can use and reuse these zoo animal flashcards in Spanish. 

First and foremost, print our your farm animal 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!
  • 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.

A lion poem

Lennox and I love poems, especially ones that rhyme.

Poems help expand Spanish vocabulary, and they are also fun to repeat to nail down the new words. So in this printable kit, I decided to add a lion poem that is also a coloring page!
