Español in the Jungle, Unit Three

Español in the Jungle, Unit Three


And… Español in the Jungle Unit 3 is ready! This free 20-page unit builds on Units One and Two and includes flashcards, bingo, a word search, stories and comprehension worksheets, games, and more! Read more here about using these units at home or in the classroom. The Español in the Jungle series from SpanishMama uses games, crafts, songs, and TPR/TPRS storytelling methods to learn beginning Spanish. Unit Three introduces:

– Classroom objects and vocabulary

– New verbs: dice, toca, abre, escucha

– New adjectives: feliz, enojado/a, grande, pequeño

Here are some helpful links for supplementing Unit Three:

En Mi Mochila Roja (GREAT song for practicing classroom objects! Contains more objects than are covered in the unit, and uses “bolígrafo” instead of “pluma” for “pen.” Also helpful for practicing making nouns and adjectives agree.)

Real Spanish Classroom (Video of teacher introducing classroom objects and colors– may be helpful if you are not a fluent speaker.)

I am so excited to post the first unit for my Español in the Jungle series! I am in the process of putting together units for parents and teachers who may not speak Spanish fluently– or at all! I came up with this idea because I would eventually like to introduce a third language to my kids. I don’t speak French, and can’t afford classes or tutors at the moment. There are tons of free resources on the internet, but without knowing French myself, I don’t exactly know where to begin. I want a way for us to learn together, without relying solely on technology.

My units are designed especially for parents who would like to begin Spanish with their kids, but are not fluent speakers. You can begin from scratch, right along with your children! Essentially, I have done the work of breaking down beginning Spanish into a sequence that builds into games and stories, and allows you to take advantage of free internet resources in a logical manner. There are a lot of worksheets, videos, and games out there that are wonderful– but it can be difficult to know how to use them. As I find new resources, I’ll simply add them to the list of ideas for each unit.

The Español in the Jungle series is for:

– Homeschooling families who want to study Spanish together

– Families whose schools don’t offer Spanish

– Spanish teachers and tutors looking for ideas

The characters in the units live in the jungle, because that’s where learned Spanish and fell in love with it. I base my lessons on movement, games, storytelling, and songs, and include some worksheets and links to worksheets as well. I recommend going with what interests your children, and using the activities that are age-appropriate. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or suggestions!
