Don’t know Spanish? No worries! I have a video with the listening activity, so you can either listen to it to hear the correct pronunciation or have your kids watch it to complete the activity.

How I Taught My Kids This Basic List of Body Parts in Spanish

I should say how I taught Aidan this list of body parts in Spanish. Thanks to a busy work schedule this past week and Alex starting baseball, I was only able to do this lesson on the day Alex was gone again. I鈥檓 still trying to figure out how to schedule more than one lesson a week. My goal was five times a week, but I鈥檓 thinking three times will be more realistic with our schedule. Especially since I鈥檓 scrambling just to get one in.

Total Physical Response

Anyhoo, Aidan and I started the lesson with TPR. I totally forgot to review the numbers before we started. Oops. I had been reviewing them during the week, and he remembered them so it probably wasn鈥檛 necessary to do it again before jumping into the body parts lesson.

For TPR, I pointed to my body part and said it in Spanish several times. He seems to like to repeat me even though his pronunciation is terrible. I know he likes to mangle the pronunciation on purpose sometimes, but other times I wish he would stop trying to say the words and just listen. It鈥檚. So. Bad. 聽Hopefully my face doesn鈥檛 show it, but I鈥檓 cringing so hard inside.

Simon Says – Sim贸n Dice

After a few minutes of TPR, I said we were going to play Sim贸n Dice (Simon Says). He just about had a meltdown and was quite passionate about how much he hates that game. I heard quite an earful about it before he gave me a chance to tell him we didn鈥檛 have to play it. Jeez. I鈥檝e never seen someone hate Simon Says so much. I told him I would find or make a Kahoot to play instead after the listening and reading activity.

Your kids can play Sim贸n Dice with this video.

Draw a Monster

So we skipped to the drawing a monster activity. I read the sentences slowly to him repeating them a few times so he could process what I was saying. He really got into it when I told him he could make it look like whatever he wanted. He just had to include what I was saying. And I ended up changing a couple of things for him because he insisted on three noses instead of one and more hands. He also added necks which was fine with me if it kept him happy.

I cut out the sentences for him, and he read them and then glued them next to the body parts on his illustration. I鈥檓 going to have him read it and translate it to my husband as a quick review activity.

Kahoot – An Online Quiz Game

I looked for a Kahoot with this list of body parts in Spanish and remembered what I learned last time which was to look at all of the questions and answers before playing. Good thing too! I almost didn鈥檛. I wanted a quiz that only had the basic body parts, and each one I looked at had errors. I ended up making one very quickly with just the body part in English for the question and four choices of body parts in Spanish for the answer.

Aidan was not impressed with it and told me with a bit of sarcasm in his voice, 鈥淲hat great questions! They鈥檙e so interesting!鈥 I told him he had to get a hundred percent, or we鈥檇 continue the lesson. That shut him up. 馃槀

Aside from learning that Aidan hates Simon Says, the lesson went pretty much as planned. I鈥檓 going to keep saying body parts in Spanish to him during the week and have him either tell me the English translation or point to the body part.

Quizlet – Online Flashcards

This quizlet set only has 13 terms in it so it matches the list of body parts in Spanish vocabulary that I have in my lesson pretty closely. But, it doesn鈥檛 have pictures. This quizlet set has more body parts but has pictures too.

These activities include a list of body parts in Spanish that will help your kids learn the most common body parts and are easy to use. Start with the very first video to introduce your kids to the words and then do the other activities in any order your kids want!
