Spanish word books for primary schools

Are you looking for a simple way of encouraging pupils to access the Spanish vocabulary they need (without resorting to online translation packages)?

Primary school children need to be able to access vocabulary to encourage them to speak, listen and write in Spanish. But when they are just beginning to learn Spanish, even the simplest bilingual Spanish-English dictionaries can be overwhelming. It is understandable that some students feel the temptation to go online.

If you find this is the case, we have a solution for you. We publish Mi Pequeño diccionario – mini (A6) Spanish word books containing Spanish vocabulary sheets for 33 popular primary school topics. Each page features 9-10 illustrations labelled with their Spanish names. The booklets are colourful, fun to use  and support all Spanish teaching schemes in use in primary schools.

Mi pequeño diccionario covers the following topics:

  • Los saludos (Greetings)
  • Los números (Numbers 1 to 20)
  • Los números del 20 al 100 (Numbers 20 to 100)
  • Los colores (Colours)
  • Los días de la semana (Days of the week)
  • Los meses del año (Months)
  • Las estaciones (Seasons)

  • Los animales del bosque (Woodland animals)
