Important words to know…

I made a Spanish/English vocabulary sheet for my kids to take on our trip to the Dominican Republic. In it, I incorporated phrases for my child who is old enough to have reading skills plus cartoons for my pre-reader.

This sheet probably also makes them think they know more Spanish than Dora the Explorer!
