Word Walls for Spanish Literacy


How to choose the right word wall...

Letras mayúsculas y minúsculas

Palabras frecuentes

This could be used as a guide for introducing high frequency words in Spanish. Some of the suggested activities come from Cunningham and Allington (2009). Consider, however, differences between English and Spanish. It is recommended early Spanish readers begin with segmenting phonemes to form syllables. Examples:

/m/ /a/ = ma

/s/ /a/ = sa

Then, stretch learning by segmenting words. Example:

/p/ /a/ /p/ /a/ = papa
