Now We're Cooking


In the webisode "Not Milk?," Abuela asks Noah to buy milk ("la leche") at the store. In the course of the story, Noah learns the Spanish word for "milk" and viewers have the opportunity to learn the Spanish words for an assortment of foods and farm animals. In this activity, children will have the opportunity to practice their Spanish vocabulary by following a recipe to make guacamole, salsa, and/or rice pudding. Vocabulary will include:

  • the goat (la cabra)
  • the chicken (el pollo)
  • the horse (el caballo)
  • the bull (el toro)
  • the sheep (la oveja)
  • the duck (el pato)



Print out the Oh Noah! Memory Cards for "Not Milk?" and cut out individual cards. Please note that the Memory Card Game should be printed on heavy paper if possible. Print out the Oh Noah! Recipe Cards.


In the video, Noah makes a mistake and thinks a bull is a cow. How are a bull and a cow alike? How are they different? After watching "Not Milk?," tell your child that you are going play a fun Memory Game and then do a cooking activity to make a snack and review some Spanish words.

To play the Noah Memory Card Game
Shuffle the Memory Cards for "Not Milk?," which include the Spanish words for the foods and farm animals explored during the Match It challenges for the webisode. Cut out the individual cards, shuffle them, and lay them on a table, face down. During each turn, a player turns over two cards (one at a time). If the cards are a match, the player keeps those cards and it becomes the next player's turn. When a player turns over two cards that do not match, those cards are turned face down again. The goal of the game is to collect the most number of matches. Tip: Encourage your child to say each word out loud in English and Spanish when they make a match to reinforce the vocabulary.

Snack Time!

Select a recipe from the Oh Noah! Recipe Cards and review the Spanish words for a variety of foods.

Take It Further:

  • Encourage your child to translate additional words using a Spanish/English dictionary or online at
  • You can reinforce your child's knowledge of Spanish words each time you open the refrigerator. When preparing meals with your child, identify each item in Spanish.
  • Next family game night play charades to practice the names of farm animal you and your child learned during the "Not Milk?" roll over. Vocabulary may include:
    • the goat (la cabra)
    • the chicken (el pollo)
    • the horse (el caballo)
    • the bull (el toro)
    • the sheep (la oveja)
    • the duck (el pato)
