Body parts are some of the first words that children understand and say in any language. They are fun to learn in Spanish!
los ojos – eyes
la nariz – nose
la boca – mouth
las orejas – ears
Use these words with your child during the day.
– If you have a pet, point out los ojos, la nariz, la boca, las orejas and el pelo to your child. Stuffed animals work too.
– Play with your food! Make a face out of peas, apple slices or whatever is on your plate. Describe what you are doing saying “ These are los ojos, and this is la nariz,” etc.
– Draw with your child, or play with clay. Make faces and say the parts of the face as you draw or make them.
– As you look in the mirror with your child (brushing teeth, brushing hair) point to your face and say the words. Make funny faces and do it again!
