I'm a little sad to see the summer go, but so appreciative of the cooler temperatures and beautiful days. My electric bill appreciates them, too, since I don't run the AC or heat as much. This change in seasons makes this month's Spanish-learning freebie from our sponsor Spanish for You! very timely!
The Seasons Bilingual Minibook is a fun activity that helps your child learn seasonal vocabulary. As with all of Spanish for You!'s excellent materials, this one comes with an audio download to help you with pronunciation.
If this is your first time here, you can find other free samples from Spanish for You! here. There are some great downloads of games and activities for you and your family to enjoy.
To supplement this activity, here are some great bilingual and Spanish-language books centered around the seasons. (These are affiliate links.) Rather than informational books just on seasons, I've chosen poems by author and poet Francisco X. Alarcon.
- Laughing Tomatoes: And Other Spring Poems / Jitomates Risuenos: Y Otros Poemas de Primavera
- From the Bellybutton of the Moon: And Other Summer Poems / Del Ombligo de la Luna: Y Otros Poemas de Verano
- Angels Ride Bikes: And Other Fall Poems / Los Angeles Andan en Bicicleta: Y Otros Poemas de Otoño
- Iguanas in the Snow: And Other Winter Poems / Iguanas en la Nieve: Y Otros Poemas de Invierno
