Many Montessori schools and homeschools introduce Spanish as well as English activities. Great times to place an extra emphasis on learning the Spanish language and introduction information about Mexico are Cinco de Mayo (May 5) and Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15).
Although many of the Spanish-speaking Montessori bloggers are from countries other than Mexico, their activities have much to offer in the area of Montessori-inspired Spanish activities appropriate for Cinco de Mayo or any time during the year. Most Montessori activities can be taught in Spanish or whatever language you’re studying.
Here are some ideas specifically for Spanish activities from Montessori bloggers:
Montessori-Inspired Spanish Activities
2 Pequeños Traviesos gives examples for Spanish versions of continents work as shown in the photo. Here the Spanish continent and ocean labels are used with the Montessori globe of the continents, but Spanish continent and ocean labels would also work well with the continent map work. Be sure to check out the other Spanish ideas at 2 Pequeños Traviesos, including work with prefixes and suffixes for elementary-age children.
Montessori en el Hogar has free downloads for elementary-age children with many of the printables in Spanish.
There are Spanish materials (a number of free printables) available from Montessori Materials.
Ayúdame a que lo haga solo has Montessori activities in Spanish.
I have a post at Living Montessori Now with Free Spanish Printables and Montessori-Inspired Spanish Activities. It links to my post at PreK + K Sharing with information about preparing the activities.
I always enjoyed introducing Spanish activities – both for the children and for the clear introduction to Spanish for myself! Have fun learning and teaching Spanish! 🙂
