Spanish Words for Kids Videos with Picture Cards

Children learn Spanish words for fruit with this video.

The Spanish Words videos use short patterned sentences, repetition and beautiful images of Mexico to teach important verbs and high-frequency vocabulary. These videos for novice learners are a perfect way to learn first words in Spanish.

Each of the videos has a question-answer segment in the second half to encourage students to produce the language.

The YouTube Spanish Words playlist has 6 videos.  We have printable picture cards for all the videos that students can color, use to play games and practice vocabulary.

We also have culture and language notes and activity suggestions for each video. I’ve linked to each of the resources below.

Means of Transportation

See cars, trucks motorcycles and other means of transportation in a colorful video from Guanajuato, Mexico. The video targets the verb ser, specifically the verb form es, as well as lots of words for transportation. Find the video and support materials here: Spanish Words Transportation Video

Vegetables

This video uses the verb hay and beautiful images of a Mexican market to teach Spanish words for vegetables. Together with the printable cards, it’s an excellent learning tool: Vegetables in Spanish: Video and Picture Cards.

Clothes

La ropa introduces kids to common words for clothes in Spanish and to the verb llevar. In addition to printable picture cards, there is a complete-the-vowel printable page using the vocabulary. Again, you can find the video and printables here: La ropa: Spanish Words Kids Love Video

Tener

Tener is one of the “super seven verbs.” In other words, it is one of a set of verbs we use in a high percentage of interactions. So, this video targets the verb form tiene and supports the language with colorful images of Mexico. Find the video and support materials here: ¿Qué tiene?: Spanish Words Kids Love Video

The Market

See the animal figures, sweets and traditional toys of a Mexican market in the beautiful video. In addition, the video targets the verb form veo with a rhyming voice over narration.

Find the video, picture cards and a flip book here: Los juguetes del mercado: Spanish Words Kids Love.

Fruit

Take a peek into a Mexican market to learn Spanish words for fruit and colors. The video repeats the verb hay and has lots of cultural content too. Find the video, printable picture cards, a flip book and lots of activity suggestions here: Las Frutas: Spanish Words Kids Love.

It’s a difficult time for teachers, students and families. We hope our videos and the materials that accompany them are helpful. If you questions or need support for the videos, please reach out to us!
