Spanish Winter Books and The Mitten FREEBIE

I love the book, El mitón . It's about a little boy who goes out to play in the snow and loses his mitten. While the mitten sits on the snow, a few fury friends find it and use it as shelter to stay warm on a cold and snowy day. I made a FREE emergent booklet back in 2013. I hope that you are able to use it with your young learners.

The Mitten Printables

Here's a sample of Spanish The Mitten printables from the packet. This reader can be used for sequencing and retelling the familiar story of The Mitten. Also available in English on my Kinder Alphabet blog.

How to use:

*The students will name each animal as they do a picture walk of this booklet.
*The students will read the sentence.
*The students will write the missing word.
*The students will read the completed sentence.
*After every page is done, students will read the completed booklet.

FREE Halloween Hat/Crown

I like to make learning fun. Kindergarten teachers put a lot of things on crowns, but I wanted to find a UNIQUE way to use them. I have been creating phonics crowns which incorporate reading, writing, math and other concepts. Well, I still have many ideas for crowns on my To Do list. You can go HERE to see what I have so far. You will find many in English and in Spanish. For now, here's a fun and free crown for this time of year.

The Five W's

Today I want to share a fun way to teach the five W's (who, what, when, where, why).  It is so much fun and easy!


Sing the following lines to the tune of I Have the Whole World in My Hands.

Tengo todo el cuento en mis manos,

Tengo todo el cuento en mis manos,

Tengo todo el cuento en mis manos,

Yo sé
Hizo qué
En donde y
Por qué

Yo sé
Hizo qué
En donde  y
Por qué


Sing the same song along with the hand motions.

1.  Use the pointer finger from one hand to make a circle in the middle of the palm of your other hand. Do this for the first three lines of the song (tengo todo el cuento en mis manos).

2.  Using ONE hand, raise one finger at a time as you mention one of the five W's (quien, hizo qué, cuando, en donde y por qué).

3. Here's a little visual that may be able to help your students.


After you finish the song and the corresponding motions, raise one finger at a time as you answer one of the Five W's. This will help students recall information from a story.

That's it! It's an easy way for students to remember and answer questions about a story that they just heard or read about.

Chica Chica Bum Bum

I love the story of Chica Chica Bum Bum. It has great rhythm and students love to read along. Here is an alphabet activity to go along with this story. Just place it in one of your centers and let students have fun while learning their ABC's.
