spanish printables winter

I made two printables to use with a listening activity I do with pictures of snowmen. These activities involve matching words to pictures and ordering syllables to form the same words. The same vocabulary is used in the listening activity, where kids find the snowman that is being described.  See and download the printable snowman listening activity and the script. The script can also be adapted as a reading activity.

This is the vocabulary in the matching and syllable activities:
el muñeco de nieve – snowman
la nieve – snow
el sombrero – hat
la bufanda – scarf
la escoba – broom
la zanahoria – carrot
los botones – buttons
rojo – red
verde – green
negro – black
anaranjado – orange

los ojos – eyes
la boca – mouth
los brazos – arms
los lentes de sol – sunglasses
