Spanish Infant-Toddler Language and Early Literacy Activities

Developed by Angela Notari-Syverson, Ph.D, and Judy Challoner, M.S./
Illustrations: Don Syverson/

These free materials include twenty home and community activities for adults and children birth to three that encourage early language and literacy development. They are appropriate for children with disabilities as well as children who are developing typically.

Each of the twenty activities includes an activity description, and hints for making the activity fun and developmentally appropriate. In addition to the activities, you can download an activity checklist that helps parents and caregivers notice their children's skills, and also cues adults to examine and grow their own interactions with children.

The materials are specifically designed to address the three key skills of 1) language development, 2) sounds and rhythms, and 3) general book and print awareness.

The files are in PDF format to allow easy and secure downloading.

  • A brief introduction to the materials
  • Activities and hints for adapting them to the child's specific needs
  • Activity checklists for self-evaluation by the adult

To download materials go to www.walearning.com and click on the purple button that says "Free Parent Education Handouts" on the home page.

This service is provided free of charge by the Minnesota Department of Education. Visit us on the web at http://education.state.mn.us
