Easy Spanish reading activity based on adding details to a picture of a snowman.

Drawing can be combined with easy Spanish reading for a fun comprehension activity. In this printable activity, kids do an easy Spanish reading, a description of a snowman. Then they add the details to a snowman outline. Finally, they choose their own details to draw and write a description of a snowman.

There is evidence that drawing is a strong aid to gaining literacy. It is a natural and valuable activity for young language learners.

You do not need a printable page for this kind of easy Spanish reading practice.  There are many variations you can do by drawing and writing as you go, on cards, or on a white board. The key is to start with something simple like the snowman. Limit the details you add to easy-to-draw items.

Try some of these ideas for an easy Spanish reading activity with a drawing of a snowman:

  • If you have a group, you can do the activity in teams. Make it a relay race where teams read a sentence on a strip of paper and add details to a snowman outline on the board.
  • Make a list of vocabulary that can be added to the snowman. Let kids draw a word or phrase from a jar to draw or for a friend to draw.
  • Put the descriptions on index cards and make the same number of snowman cards. Take a card, read the description, and then add the details to the snowman card. Once you have added the details, you can do the activity in reverse – match the drawings to the correct descriptions.
  • Use the cards with the snowmen and the descriptions to play memory.
  • This makes a great listening activity and a fun pair activity. I have also used drawings as writing prompts. You can adapt easy Spanish reading practice with simple drawings to any skill and level.
