Back to School en Español // School Supply Flashcards in Spanish

by | Aug 19, 2013 | Fall

Does it feel like back to school time where you live?  Here the weather has been perfectly fallish, so hearing the school bus wheels squeak to a stop each morning seems about right; however, I feel like the summer FLEW by!  I know we probably say this every year, but seriously, my summer came and went in the blink of an eye.  Our family is still young enough that we do not have things like back-to-school shopping lists, or meet-the-teacher nights, but we are working on getting a little learning schedule in order and we stocked up on a few essential school supply items to get us through the year.  As I was putting all of our new school supplies away and trying to get them organized, I snapped a few pictures of them to make flashcards.  Feel free to save these images to your personal computer to print off for personal and/or classroom use.  You can use them for labeling or fun visuals for learning some new school supply words in Spanish.  I also made a printable form too that you can download  here.  I put the pronunciations and English words in the captions below.  Write those on the backs of the cards you print out for reminders on how to say the words and what they mean.  Enjoy your back to school days!  By the way, does anyone else love shopping for school and office supplies as much as I do?!  What is your favorite part of back-to-school?
