As a parent and educator, I try to think of real world experiences for my children. I try to make experiences relatable and fun. My son L- is learning Spanish. I teach him through play and authentic conversation. He is at the age now where he can do things on his own. He is very independent and loves showing us all the new things he can do. I decided to push that independence by labeling important areas of his room. This is a great activity for all children. I took pictures of specific areas around my son’s room. Then I printed them out, wrote the Spanish label on it (with the article) laminated them, and he helped me put them around the room. He had a lot of fun doing it. The best part is that, I labeled his drawers. So now he can choose his own clothes and dress himself. So make every literacy experience a fun one! Enjoy the pics.
