Editable resources that are great for a second language

As I have mentioned before we have a bilingual home and we try to include both languages in our home learning.  There are a number of different ways to find the resources for home learning in english but I have found that when you start looking for another language it is not so easy.

So one of the things that we have been doing is using the editable resources that are available on the Twinkl website.  I have been translating them into Afrikaans for our use but you could translate them into any other language.

These are my favourite editable resources with the links attached.  I hope you find them as useful as I have.

Editable train (Free)  – I love these.  We have used it lots in our home.  It would be great for doing months of the year of even days of the week.  We have also used our train with rhyming words.

Editable colour splats (free).  Great for a display of the colour words or print them 4 to a page and multiple copies and play a game of snap.

I also like the editable colour crayons (free).  Great for colour words.  We have ours up on a board in the kids room.

We often use word mats so here are a few editable ones that we have found useful.

My emotions word mat (free).

Under the sea word mat (free)

My clothes word mat (gold)

African animal word mat (free)

We have also often used the editable labels (we like the animal ones).  My daughter likes using these to practice writing the animal names in Afrikaans.  Here are our four favourite ones.

Also for those of you who like using loop cards you could use the editable version.  I think these are a great way of doing 2 languages.

And lastly these great editable autumn leaves.  I love autumn.  Last year we made an autumn tree and we wrote words on the leaves.  You could use these leaves for a bunch of different autumn activities.

I hope these links help provide a little bit of extra colour and cheer to your 2nd language learning, whatever it may be.  I know both my kids have been enjoying them.

  2. These are great! We have been studying Spanish the last few years so I’m always on the lookout for ways to incorporate the language in our everyday lessons. Love these! Thanks so much!
