At home, we speak only Spanish. Using My First Puzzles Pairs has been fun and instructive. On these brightly illustrated animal puzzle pieces, the "front" half of the animal is written in English and the "back" half is written in Spanish. Pig/Cerdo, Cat/Gato, Bear/Oso, are just three of the ten puzzle pairs.Our three year old has asked to do the puzzle regularly, about 3-4 times a week and we happily oblige. Now that she knows the puzzle pairs, we use the cards as prompts to improve her vocabulary by chatting about what sounds the animals make, where they live and what they eat.
