Spanish learning activity: Seasons

In this Spanish learning activity, you’ll learn to make a bilingual mobile of the seasons. By using simple homemade products, you’ll be able to recycle and teach children about the seasons.

The Spanish learning activity consists of making a mobile from a wire hanger and displaying the seasons on paper plates and cutouts. Children will be cutting pieces of common things of seasons.

They will later paste these findings in their circles of seasons. Children will attach them to the wire hanger and display.

You can add to the mobile as the year goes by. You can also add something special to the last day of school.

Each child can personalize his or her mobile by adding birthdays or special occasions. What do you think?
