¡Bienvenidos! Welcome!

¡Muchas gracias! for visiting this website! I am an Elementary Spanish and English Teacher working full time. This website is the result of my passion of creating educational materials and games for children , so what you see in this website is the result of almost 30 years of teaching both languages and creating resources for my students! The name Alphabet Space comes from my thought of creating a ‘Space’ for alphabets of different languages.

The name of this website is also Space because of the alien creatures that enlighten many of my worksheets and games. I call them “My Space Friends” and they are my personal response as to what extraterrestrials may look like. I started drawing them since I was 12 years old.

I have created and continue to enhance a Spanish Curriculum for children from Kindergarten to Sixth Grade. I am starting to create an English Curriculum as of April of 2022. There are also two additional sections I will add to as I have time: Resources to Teach Remotely and Cultures. And… check out the new section Be Green Magazine for Kids! as I will be incorporating some “green” content into this website.

Below you can see the latest content by date as I add it.

Today, I created a page for Yerba Mate. In it, you will find a great worksheet for Free to use with your first and second grade students. I had my students try the cold version of Yerba Mate called ‘Terere’. You can find tea bags that make it very easy to prepare. Their faces were priceless and some loved it and some not. You can read about Yerba Mate HERE and find the worksheet there too. There is also a great video about how they process the plant to get the Yerba Mate. ¡Que lo disfruten! Enjoy!

Learning Spanish as a Second Language can be fun and simple with the resources available here at Alphabet Space. Though this site’s focus in on children and how to help them learn Spanish, many of the graphics, activities, videos and resources can be helpful to anyone learning the language.

Search the menu (on the top) for your area of interest.  Scroll down quick access to the three sections: Spanish Curriculum, Featured which highlights a particular resource and Our YouTube channel. I am in the process of building a Spanish Curriculum that will contain pages dedicated to every aspect: vocabulary, grammar, oral practice and reading. 

¡Mucha salud y bienestar!
