Make Your Own Vocabulary Adventskalender for the Holiday Season

by Corey · 2 comments

Multilingual Living reader Kate sent in the following language learning activity which she just posted on her blog.

This is a wonderful way to count down the days until Christmas (or make it for 31 days and use it to count down until the New Year) all while learning new vocabulary!

Thank you Kate for letting us know about this wonderful activity!

Here are Kate’s main instructions but I highly recommend that you go to Kate’s blog, German in the Afternoon, to see photos of the Adventskalender as well as other details (and check out the rest of her blog while there!):

“The kids make a chain with strips of paper (6″ x 1.25″) and tear off one paper link each day. The chain hangs from the main page (cut along the dotted lines at the bottom to attach the first link).

I set it up so that there are vocab words on the back of each link, and kids fill in the word that goes with the picture on the main page. To print the words, use 12×12 scrapbooking paper cut in half (to make it 6×12), then cut into 1.25″ strips.”

After a couple days of doing our own advent calendar, which involves reading a clue to find our advent ornament and a small treat or coupon for a family activity….I realized I should be writing the clues in Spanish! It is fun to see the kids trying their best to read the clue, understand it, and find their treasures! It’s a great use of prepositions like under/on top of/behind and vocabulary around the house!
