One of the hardest things to find is materials in Spanish for speech therapy. What’s out there is either of questionable quality or there’s just not enough of the good Spanish stuff to last over time. That’s why I created my very own Teachers Pay Teachers store where I sell speech therapy materials in Spanish.
However, sometimes I just want a simple website to click on quickly that will facilitate my students’ language and communication skills in Spanish. Until recently, I didn’t know which websites were good because I didn’t have the time to o searching. If you’ve done any searching at all, there are so many websites in both English and Spanish that are total duds. I needed quality, interactive Spanish websites that were applicable to speech therapy, which means they help me teach basic language concepts and speech sounds in Spanish.
Now that I’m working in teletherapy, interactive bilingual websites are a requirement because I’m using the computer all day with students and I need to share things with them that are interactive over the computer. So I’ve done extensive research to find the best Spanish websites that you can use with your students with communication disorders. Bookmark this blog post or pin it now — you will use these websites over and over!
- Señor Wooly — Informative videos for students learning Spanish. They are extremely silly and are meant for students learning Spanish (who are often older), but they are a hoot. Some sample videos, but $45/year
- Childtopia — I just love this website! I can log in with my paid code and find something new everyday. There is a lot to explore on just this one site, which makes me feel like I’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s available to use in speech therapy. From straight-up language games to memory and puzzles, the options are endless. (K-5) FREE and PAID $12/year
- Chillola.com — Great place for extremely basic Spanish vocabulary organized into categories. There are no games, but instead simple pictures with audio. I have used it to take baseline data about basic concepts in Spanish. (PK-1) FREE
- OnlineFreeSpanish — Another website that organizes lessons about basic Spanish vocabulary, but this website does more differentiation for ability level and there are many interactive games. I recommend exploring the site to find the best game for your students (and there are printables available as well). (PK-3) FREE
- Pocoyó — How much do kids enjoy a fun mascot or little child to follow them as they learn? Pocoyó is an adorable tiny boy that helps kids learn the absolute basics by using games and fun characters to teach kids. (PK-K) FREE
- ChinPumJuegos — I like all the wordless games on this website to use as reinforcers during articulation therapy. For example, say 10 words, move something through a maze or click on all the raindrops to find the rainbow. The website is basic, but it gets the job done as a reinforcer for little ones. (PK-2) FREE
- Cokitos — There is huge variety of Spanish language games from counting syllables to spelling to making your own story. You do have to go through the games to chose the right ones — and watch out for some of the ads that come out, which keep the site free, but can be odd. (PK-5) FREE
- Mundo Primaria — You have to do a little digging to find exactly what you need by topic and student ability, but I really like what I’ve used on this website. Lots of language games and some games with sounds as well. Watch out for YouTube ads here though. (1-6) FREE
- ElBuhoBoo.com — Super cute graphics are engaging for the little ones as they learn all about animals. The free version of the website is limited and has ads. I have not tried the paid version, but the demo is larger (full screen) and without the ads. (PK-K) FREE and PAID $12/year
- LearnaLanguage.com — Spanish vocabulary games organized by category with more advanced words to spark more conversations and language expansion with your students. (K-5) FREE
- Epic! — Interactive picture books in Spanish? Yes please. I bought a subscription to this ebook website and I love it. Their selection of ebooks in Spanish is growing and my students have enjoyed both fiction and nonfiction. The Spanish books are a little hard to find, but once you favorite them, you can find them again easily. (PK-5) PAID $5/month
- TumbleBooks — I don’t think I can say enough about this website. The interactive books just cannot be beat and their library in Spanish is great for all ages. Most school districts retain district-wide subscriptions with a district-wide login. Definitely see if your school district has access to this resource. (K-3) PAID by school district
- Mi Mundo en Palabras — I think this website could have been made by a speech path; It’s organized by functional language categories! That being said, the graphics are a little small so it does make it tough to see everything and it is a little clunky to navigate, but I definitely love how it touches on basic descriptive concepts and different settings from daily life. (PK-1) FREE
- Newsela –Thank goodness for Newsela! I love how each article can be modified for every reading level. I love using it with my 3rd through 5th graders. I’m using the free version because it really helps with my answering questions goals for older students and I think the free version is sufficient for speech paths. (2-12) FREE and PAID versions (cost varies)
- Aprendizaje de la lectoescritura — Great website for articulation practice in Spanish with students. There are games for kids and great models using kids’ voices to sound out. Only annoying part of the website is that it does play music, which I haven’t figured out how to turn off! (PK-1) FREE
- Ciudad17 — Need another website to help kids learn basic shapes, color names, and common objects? This slight website has a few games that help kids learn in Spanish. (PK-K) FREE
- Rockalingua — Many foreign language teachers swear by this website because it uses music to teach Spanish, but to be honest the free content hasn’t impressed me enough to make me spring for the full, paid version. (K-3) PAID $49/year and $99/year versions.
- Story Place — Review basic concepts through a small database of Spanish activities and books. There isn’t much here, but it’s useful for one therapy session. (PK-1) FREE
- TuDiscoveryKids — If you have students that are obsessed with cartoon characters, this website has a few memory and puzzles games that may help you reach some of those more challenging kids. I personally have not used it because it’s too branded for me. I see it more as a website that you can share with parents. (PK-1) FREE
- GoNoodle — My students just love GoNoodle videos, which I use in teletherapy after a session where the kids are desperate for movement breaks. They have a few Spanish videos! FREE and PAID versions ($10/month or $99/year for pro)
I’m relieved to finally have a blog post up all about my favorite sites — I can bookmark my own post so that I can easily click over to my favorite Spanish websites for children with communication disorders! Thanks so much for reading!
