Spanish Valentine Reading and Speaking Activities

This is a reading and speaking activity for beginning Spanish learners. It uses hearts, so it is appropriate for Valentine’s Day, although the activity focuses on parts of the face and other common words.

The first activity involves reading simple sentences and matching them to the correct heart. The sentences give kids the vocabulary they need to describe the hearts in the second activity. They can use the same language to talk about the heart in the first column and then look for the same features in the second column. To do the matching activity, they draw lines between the two hearts that are the same. Kids can also write key words on the lines or beside the hearts.

This is the common vocabulary kids will use as they do the activities.
