Plaza Famila

New Resource for Learning to Read in Spanish

Los Sonidos de Pepe Pato
Written by Monica



There are very few resources out there available for Spanish-speaking families who are trying to teach their children to read…in Spanish. I’ve listed a few before here on Plaza Familia. But as far as an actual program, it’s hard to find one that is affordable, or still in print!

So I’m really pleased to share with you the creators of Los sonidos de Pepe Pato. PreK bilingual teachers, Kim Jungman Fails and Debby Patterson, have banded together to create printables that help teach Spanish-speaking children beginning Spanish sounds. With over 30 years of experience teaching ESL students, Kim and Debby are sharing materials they’ve used to help their own students.

Their online shop sells a variety of teaching materials. To see a sample of their work, you can download a free copy of their Spanish alphabet charts, or you can visit my own site to download a sample pack of their program, Los sonidos de Pepe Pato.

They are continually adding new products, so you don’t have to worry about running out of material for your children. Most recently they’ve added spelling cards, letter mini-books, and vocabulary-building activities.

And on their blog, Teaching Spanish Beginning Sounds, they share some really creative activities and printables that you can download or purchase.

So if you’re looking for ways to help your Spanish-speaking child learn to read, take a moment to explore Kim and Debby’s store, Doodles and Kreations.
