List of Spanish Words A-Z: Beginner Spanish for Kids (& FREE FLASHCARDS!)
When your kids start learning Spanish, it’s much more fun to dive right into experiencing and memorizing new beginner Spanish words. Kids have an amazing mind and they absorb things much faster than we adults do. By focusing on Spanish words, your child can practice the alphabet, grow their vocabulary, and increase their reading comprehension.
At Homeschool Spanish Academy, we love helping teachers and parents who teach their kids Spanish at home. That is why we made a list of A-Z Spanish words for kids!
To avoid becoming overwhelmed by all the new and wonderful Spanish words we can teach, I’ve decided to divide this big list into three distinct groups:
Clearly, if you’re working with a younger learner, it’s not necessary for them to know the differences between a noun, an adjective, and a verb. But the categories act as a nice tool to help you subtly introduce grammar elements without explicitly teaching them.
And it gets better—we’ve made flashcards for all of the words in our list!
When teaching vocabulary or practicing beginner Spanish words with kids, using flashcards brings the information to life. Download the list for free and print them out to make your lessons more interactive and fun!
Now, without further ado, here are the lists of Spanish words A-Z for kids!
Spanish Words for Kids: Nouns
Starting with nouns, these words are familiar concepts to children because it’s likely they’ve learned many of them in their native language. Kids love animals and toys, which is what you’ll find in this relatable list of nouns for kids.
Want a tip? Use the free flashcards we’re giving you with some of the toys your child has at home! If they have stuffed animals, or toys, or even objects around the house and the classroom, you can use them together with the flashcards to help associate the Spanish words with the object. This makes the whole process so much easier and more fun!
Spanish Words for Kids: Adjectives
Now we’re moving to adjectives. We made a list of adjectives, but there are so many more! We tried to choose some of the best ones. Your child will probably already know some of these beginner Spanish words, but it is always a good idea to keep reviewing them.

Another set of adjectives that are useful to teach are colors and numbers! Lucky for you, we have a blog post about Spanish Number, Shapes, and Colors for kids.
Just like the list of nouns, you can teach these adjectives by using objects from around your house or classroom. Use the free flashcards and have your kid identify objects that fit these adjectives! You can also try to mix and match these adjectives to help your kids remember them.
Spanish Words for Kids: Verbs
Teaching verbs is so much fun! While teaching these Spanish words, act them out. You can make a game out of it and use the flashcards to have your kid or students perform the action. For example, if the flashcard says jump, tell your kid or students to jump! By performing the actions as they say the word, it reinforces the meaning. (Take note that our list skips verbs that start with W, X, and Y because there aren’t any in Spanish that are useful for kids!)
|kilometrar||to measure (in kilometers)|

We hope you enjoy printing out the free flashcards and using them to your kids or students along with whichever games you choose to play.
Remember it can take some time for the kids to learn all of these words. We know they’re a lot of words! But don’t panic if it’s taking some time. It is important that you review them regularly and have them practice their Spanish words as much as possible.
