Root & Star: The Forest Issue 20

We are pleased to share our recent publication in Root & Star!  We’ve been checking our mailbox regularly, eagerly awaiting the arrival of the Forest issue. Una búsqueda de tesoros en el bosque (treasure hunt in the woods) is an interactive Spanish language activity for children - inspired by outdoor adventures we’ve enjoyed with our own children and their friends.

We imagine families going outside and exploring their own backyards in any season. No matter if you live in an urban or rural area, this type of activity is easily customized. It is intended for language learners at any level, beginner to advanced.

To compliment our recent publication, we are sharing examples of illustrated vocabulary cards you can use to introduce new words alongside an illustrated “checklist” that can be used to keep track of which treasures are found outside.

We hope this Spanish language treasure hunt is useful, and gives you a starting point from which you can add more Spanish language to your days.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out this beautiful, ad-free magazine for children (ages 3-8), you can find it at Barnes & Noble, Whole Food supermarkets, and other bookstores.
