Oh what fun we had today! We learned a classic song called, "el burrito de Belén", & compared our Christmas (Navidad) to the 3 Kings Day (el día de los 3 reyes). Ask your kids about the "12 days of Christmas" we sing about, as well as the New Year's grapes (UVAS!). We made crowns to celebrate 3 Kings Day, & got a shoe "filled" for Day of the 3 Kings as well! We also had a piece of cake (typically is roscón de reyes), & one lucky student found a plastic baby inside!
Today we sang Frosty the Snowman & Silent Night in Spanish, & reviewed our winter clothing vocab. We also learned all the American Christmas vocab, and did a little listening activity to recognize them. We talked about the different names for Santa Clause in Spanish (i.e. Papa Noel), sang Feliz Navidad and learned the words, and prepped for next week's lesson. Next week will be our last week of Spanish for this semester, & kids will need to sign back up if they are interested in next semester/continuing Spanish after Christmas. Don't forget--bring a SHOE of some type next week to class. Not one that is on your feet. I promise, it will not be ruined in any way!
Great job today, niños! Today, we learned the words to "Frosty the Snowman" in Spanish, and you traced the words to the song if you want to teach them to someone at home! We also learned about the parts of a snowman, sang some songs with that vocab in them, and labeled a snowman for you to remember. We started a BINGO board with winter vocab like guantes, mitones, bufanda, etc. Please finish your BINGO board if you did not in class so that we are ready to play right away next week! (Only 2 of each vocab on the entire board!). Stay warm this week!
Today we learned Frosty The Snowman in Español! I printed out the words for you so you can sing to your family! We watched several little videos and learned vocab for everything on a snowman, as well as winter clothing vocab. We listened to a preschool video from a fluent speaker telling a story about a snowman. The kids did an AMAZING job on a listening activity, in which they identified 12 different snowman from Spanish clues. Great job today! (I forgot to get your clues to you, if you want to try them with your parents or someone at home! I will deliver them to you classroom teacher tomorrow (Wednesday)).
Today we worked on months of the year, via a worksheet and song (canción)! The kids matched up a worksheet that they can share with you, and encourage them to sing our song, using the tune, "One little two little three little [pumpkins]" (or whatever the kids have learned to substitute into this song from early years).
enero, febrero, marzo, abril...mayo, junio, julio, agosto...septiembre, octubre, noviembre, diciembre...son los meses del año (are the months of the year)!
We also played a fun game of pictionary/charades to review/reinforce our Thanksgiving vocab from last week!
Great job this week, niños!!
Today we worked on our months of the year, as well as the color "anaranjado" and "naranja". Ask your kids to tell you the difference between the two, and see if they can sing the months of the year song for you! We sang our "chocolate" song and worked on our "cho-co-la-te" handclap as well. We finished up with a fun and lively game of pictionary/charades to review and apply our Thanksgiving vocab. Your kids did an amazing job!!
We finished putting our "librito" from Day of the Dead together & introduced Thanksgiving vocab. We worked on another little book for "el día del acción de gracias", as well as a "la comida" (food) page! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving break! NO class next week!
Hoy, today, we reviewed our "librito" (little book) from Day of the Dead last week. We cut out the pages, put the book together, & read through it. I encouraged the kids to read through it (with your help, probably), this week. The pictures & cognates (words that similar or the same in English & Spanish) should help the kids & you figure out the storyline :) We also worked on a couple other songs we have been learning. Next week, we will get ready for Thanksgiving! Reminder, no Spanish the week of Thanksgiving!
Today we reviewed & practiced reading & translating our "Día de los Muertos" little book (librito). Your child can read this "librito" to you for "tarea" or homework this week. There should be enough cognates (words that are similar or the same in Spanish & English) & picture clues for you and your child to understand the storyline of the book (although we did work through the translation of it in class). We also worked on a couple songs, as well as introduced the parts of the body in Spanish (via a Halloween skeleton worksheet) :)
Happy Día de los Muertos! Boy did we celebrate today! Thanks so much for all of the great treats you brought today! We made tissue marigolds, "papel picado", had a photo booth with Day of the Dead props, and started a little Day of the Dead book (librito)! Please finish coloring your librito for next week & we'll do some more work with it!
