A book with 108 activities to help keep practice the Spanish alphabet and Spanish words

Why do you want your child to learn Spanish?

Do you want to give them an edge by helping them become bilingual/multilingual?

Do you just want to give them the ability to communicate with the 461 million native Spanish speakers?

Do you want them to gain/keep your own parents’ native language?

We all have our own reasons, but we have the same goal, for our children to learn Spanish.

Let’s Learn the Spanish Alphabet is the perfect introduction to the Spanish language. This is what this book will do for your child:

  1. Teach them the direction in which each letter is written. 

This book comes with jumbo letters meant for our younger learners. They will be able to trace each letter with their fingers since their handwriting skills might not be developed. The older kids can practice tracing these letters with their writing utensil of choice.

*You can find the pronunciation of each letter in the video below.*

       2. Provide additional tracing practice for each letter. 

The second page offered for each letter, is additional writing practice, and/or coloring for our young learners. As your child works on this page, ask them to name the letter in Spanish.

*You can find the pronunciation of each letter in the video below.*

      3. Learn Spanish words that begin with each of the letters of the Alphabet. 

The third page provides five easy to remember words written with their proper definite articles, or gender (la/el) with pictures for each of the letters of the alphabet. The purpose of this page is to have your child associate each of the Spanish letter sounds with the initial sounds in each of the provided words.

*You can find the pronunciation of each of the words in the video below.*

      4. Recognize and differentiate a target letter from the rest. 

In these pages, children are asked to find a specific letter and color it. When working on these pages, ask your child to find the letter by using its Spanish pronunciation.

5. The parent freebies: 

Besides the 108 coloring and learning activities that your child receives in this book, we provided:

  1. A tracking page for you to shade in each letter that your child is able to recognize and sound out.
  2. A linking chart used to help your child link a letter to the initial sound in a word. For example, in English you would say something like: a-a-apple, b-b-bear, c-c-car.

6. The child freebie:

Digraphs, or two letters that make a single sound are a big part of the Spanish language. Some of these were even the alphabet until 2010. As a thank you for your purchase, we will send you the “Let’s Learn the Spanish Digraphs!” digital download.

7. The pronunciation video:

This video follows the book, and guides your child through the pronunciation of each of the letters and words they will be working with.

6 Questions to ask your child’s teacher at the beginning of the school year

Little Passports
A new school year means new teacher, new rules, routines, and possibly a new school.

The best way to assist your child in this new adventure is to be informed. 

Some teachers are great at providing this information on their own, but in case you do not get it, here are some questions you can ask your child’s teacher to be best informed about your child’s day to day.

1. What is your classroom management plan?

This will let you know the rewards and consequences your child will receive at each stage of their behavior. You’re looking for a teacher who has a plan in place, but at the same time will allow students to regulate their own behavior, for example, kids choosing their own consequence, writing a reflection, and giving them the opportunity for redemption.

2. What is your homework policy? 

You want to ensure your child is finishing school assignments. Ask what days you should expect homework from school and the type of homework your child will be receiving. Will these be in the form of handouts, projects, or both? What is your policy for late/not turned in homework?

3. How can I contact you?

E-mail is possibly the best way to communicate considering that they are busy with their class during work hours. 


Ask for their conference period. What time is it? This is the time allotted for things such as parent conferences. Some teachers prefer to meet a parent during this time versus after school when they want to go home. 

Lastly, ask if your child’s classroom has a direct line. This will be best used in case you want to leave voice messages. In some schools, calls to classrooms go directly to voicemail during class hours.

4. Are water bottles and snacks allowed?

If the answer is yes, do they prefer a certain type of water bottle and a certain type of snack? Is there a specific snack time, or can they eat as “needed?”

5. How will school supplies be distributed?

Teachers have different policies for school supplies. Some gather things like scissors, glue, pencils and even markers to be for communal use. In other instances, kids get to keep all of them. This one is really a personal preference whether you prefer your child to keep them or turn them in to their teacher, but at least you ought to know what happened to your money.

6. How can I help?

Does your teacher have a project in mind that he or she needs supplies for? Is there a need in the classroom such as flexible seating? Offer to volunteer. Provide your availability or the ways you can help. The teacher you’re asking these questions to has more than likely spent money out of their own pocket to make your child’s classroom look welcoming. In the end, your kids will receive the benefit too.
