147 Spanish Questions for Kids - Spanish Playground
There are 8 sets of questions on Spanish Playground that I refer to with my students as Una preguntita. They cover a range of levels, so you can choose the ones that fit your needs. I have had several requests for a printable with the questions, so I complied them in a PDF to download and print. Download 147 Questions for Kids Learning Spanish. Una preguntita encourages kids to draw on information they know to understand Spanish. Although some words in the questions may be new, kids use their knowledge as context to understand. I use these questions for all kinds of games and activities, and kids love them. They are perfect for quiz games, to fill a few minutes at the end of class or for family car trips. With these questions, kids practice – identifying words they know in different contexts – recognizing word families – recognizing cognates – deriving meaning from context – global listening or reading skills. In other words, they practice listening or reading for the main idea, rather than trying to understand every word. The questions are based on information children learn from preschool through early elementary school. Of course, which material your child has mastered will depend on her age, and to some extent, her life experiences and interests. A more complete explanation of using knowledge to provide comprehensible input One of the biggest challenges for Spanish teachers and parents teaching Spanish to their children is providing sufficient input at the appropriate level. Exposing a child to Spanish is not difficult, but exposing a child to Spanish at the right level and in a way that promotes learning is time consuming and takes effort. Working with familiar information is one way to make the process easier. Children acquire language when there is comprehensible input at a slightly higher level than what they understand. Language teachers refer to this as i + 1, meaning comprehensible input + 1. In other words, when the learner hears or reads language that is supported in ways that make meaning clear and that language is slightly more difficult what she understands, she will acquire new language. If the language is at a much higher level, children do not learn. Likewise, if the language is not supported in a way that gives it meaning, children do not learn. We use visual support such as actions, gestures, or pictures to clarify the meaning of new language and create comprehensible input. However, once you move beyond concrete nouns and common actions and begin to deal with more abstract language, it can become difficult to provide visual support for new language in a systematic way. Using a child’s prior knowledge is another way to provide comprehensible input. If a child is familiar with certain information, she can draw on what she already knows to understand Spanish. She will understand relationships between words and be able to predict what she will hear. Using a child’s knowledge of a subject also allows teachers and parents to move beyond what can be easily represented visually. One way to tap into a child’s knowledge base as a tool for learning Spanish is to link language learning to material that you know your child has mastered. Children understand the key vocabulary and concepts associated with many subjects. This information, combined with cognates and basic Spanish they have learned, enables them to understand new words in context. A few suggestions – Begin with questions that you think will be easy for your class or child. This gives children an opportunity to get used to the wording of the questions and will give them confidence. - If possible, have children work in pairs or small groups. This way, their knowledge base is expanded. They also model different strategies for understanding the questions. - If you are asking the questions orally and your class or child does not understand, show the written question. Often seeing cognates will help children make connections they do not make listening. - Depending on your situation, if you are playing a game you may want to give credit or partial credit for understanding the question. This could mean accepting a partial answer or letting kids answer in English. You may also be interested in these activities: Learn Spanish with Pictures

Disney's Las Posadas, Spanish Christmas Activity
Las Posadas was the story of a group of Mexican children who celebrated Christmas by re-enacting the journey of Mary, the mother of Jesus and Saint Joseph searching for room at the inn. "Posada" means "inn", and they are told "no posada" at each house until they come to one where they are offered shelter in a stable. This leads to festivities including the breaking of the piñata.

Desde hacía semanas, el sol ya no calentaba como en los calurosos días de verano. Además, la brisa del viento se paseaba agitando las copas de los árboles y la música de las hojas chocando unas con otras se dejaba escuchar por cada rincón. Ya no se veían flores nuevas y las que aún quedaban, empezaban a marchitar... Cuento de Eva Alonso basado en el tercer movimiento de "El Otoño" de Vivaldi. http://www.musicaeduca.es/
