Songs, printables activities, poems, stories and outdoor games are all Spanish spring activities that engage children with new vocabulary.

Spanish Spring Vocabulary List

Use these Spanish spring activities and vocabulary list with children learning a second language.

Spring words in Spanish overlap with many themes. However, the printable Spanish spring vocabulary list below has general words that I have taught in spring units over and over.

There is also specific vocabulary that also fits into a spring theme. For example, you may want to teach words for the butterfly life cycle, the life cycle of a plant, the life cycle of a chicken, the water cycle or animal homes.  I often teach those themes at this time of year, and the vocabulary reinforces more general Spanish spring words.
