Spanish lesson: Learning Spanish classroom objects

In this Spanish lesson series, you will learn the basic terms for common classroom objects. When you look around the classroom, there are ordinary items that you might see every day. So, let’s find out how we can name these classroom objects around your classroom – whether it be a homeschool room or a school classroom.

Getting around the classroom is an easy task. Although you know the basic terms, let’s see if you can start to name them in Spanish. At a later lesson, we will learn how to use these basic Spanish classroom vocabulary terms in sentence structure and reading.

Introduction and Prior Knowledge

This Spanish lesson uses 17 common classroom objects that you might encounter often. However, there could more usual objects that you might see in your classroom that is not covered here in this Spanish lesson. If you have a particular classroom object that you would like to add into this Spanish lesson, please let me know and I can include the English and Spanish classroom vocabulary term.

In this Spanish lesson, we will also discuss about the many Spanish variations you might find. For instance, if you were learning Spanish in Central America, you might learn pen as bolígrafo or plumb instead of lapicera. However, living in Latin America, you might learn pen as lapicera as opposed to bolígrafo, which indicates more of a fountain pen, quill, or a dip pen. If you have any questions about Spanish vocabulary terms, please let me know.
