Hi, everyone! Señora Eckert here with some ideas for keeping up with your Spanish vocabulary!
1. I have some worksheets for you! They are attached. If you have a printer at home, try them. You can make and color flash cards to teach your family members some Spanish, learn fun facts about our southern neighbor, Mexico, count 100 things around your house in Spanish with a little worksheet help, and take a review quiz of words that you have learned.
2. How about some fun websites for learning Spanish?
