Spanish Reading Comprehension – Descriptions
In the Spanish reading comprehension activity, Lectura y comprensión de frases sobre las partes de la cara. Castellano kids read sentences that describe a face. They click Descubre esta cara to start. Players read phrases like mucho cabello negro, ojos verdes, nariz triangular, etc. On the picture, they click through the options for each part of the face until it matches the description. They can click Descubre esta cara at any point to get a new description.
Spanish Reading Comprehension – Objects in a Scene
Another Spanish reading comprehension activity involves changing objects in a scene to make them match a sentence. In the list of activities it is titled Lectura y comprensión de frases. Ver. castellano/catalán.
The sentences are short and use common Spanish vocabulary. The different scenes have several elements that change, but not too many.
On the menu there are six games, each with a different scene. Juego 1 has one object that you change by clicking on it until it matches the sentence. For examples, Hay un león con los ojos cerrados. The other levels have scenes with two, three or four objects to change. For any of the games, click Más at the bottom to get new sentences.
