A Spanish vocabulary practice activity based on adding details to a drawing.

Drawing can be used for all kinds of Spanish vocabulary practice. In this printable activity, kids read short descriptions and then add the details to the houses. Finally, they choose their own details to draw in and write a description of the house.

Drawing Activities for Vocabulary Practice

You don’t need a printable for Spanish vocabulary practice with simple drawings like the house. There are many variations you can do by drawing as you go, on cards, or on a white board. The key is to start with something simple like the house and to limit the details you add to items that are easy to draw.

Drawing with House Vocabulary

  • If you have a group, you can do the activity in teams. Make it a relay race where teams add details to a house outline on the board.
  • Make a list of objects and weather conditions and let kids choose one item from each list to draw or have a friend draw.
  • Introduce an element of chance. Put the weather conditions and items into two piles and draw one of each, or make a double spinner and draw the different combinations of details.
  • Put the descriptions on index cards and make the same number of house cards. Take a card, read the description, and then add the details to the house card. Once you have added the details, you can do the activity in reverse –  match the drawings to the correct descriptions.
  • Use the cards with the houses and the descriptions to play memory.
  • This makes a great listening activity and a fun pair activity. I have also used drawings as writing prompts. You can adapt Spanish vocabulary practice with simple drawings to any skill and level.
