How to make word strips to learn Spanish words with ch

Learning Spanish vocabulary for kids doesn’t have to be a boring task. By using simple homemade supplies, you’ll be able to construct a vocabulary that is easy to make. Words in Spanish have a special significance.

Spanish words can easily be pronounced when using syllables. Words like chocolate or elefante have cho-co-la-te and e-le-fan-te. When you don’t know a new word in Spanish, all you have to do is separate the syllables to figure out the pronunciation.

In this lesson, you’ll be able to:

  • Learn how Spanish syllables form
  • Learn new Spanish words
  • Assimilate English and Spanish words

Embellished heart with word strip in Spanish


In this lesson, you’ll learn to use the heart and word strip to learn new Spanish words. By switching word strips, you’ll be able to see the different ways to make words with ch-. The letters ch- is part of many Spanish words, the same as learning words with gi-, ga-, gu-, and go-.

If you have flash cards with pictures, then it would be great to use them along the heart and word strips. It is easy to visualize the words with a picture to supplement this learning activity.
