Are you teaching a second language in your home?  When it comes time to learn those new vocabulary words and everyone is getting tired of handwriting them out to memorize…try this fun activity!


Supplies Needed:

  • Sharpie Marker (or any marker)
  • Post-it Notes
  • Willingness to have things get a little crazy
  • Something your kids like to do that will help quiet things down

That’s it!  Now go have some fun!




Did you give this a try?  I’d love to hear from you!

    My husband uses post-its as a check list for all the things he has to do. He will take them off the wall one by one until they are all done!

    We’ve used 3 by 5 index cards to label things in Spanish around our home, so I’ve done this same idea with success, too.

      Hi Susan,

      Post-it notes are so handy aren’t they?

      I’m happy to hear you are having success with your Spanish studies using a similar method!

    My seven year old will love this for a challenge in her Spanish studies!
