We played some more BINGO to practice our "Pascua" (Easter) vocab. Each child also made a piñata of their own!
We started our mini-piñata flamenco lady today! Tomás made a little mariachi band man piñata!
Today we read a little "librito" (book) full of great verbs, & vocab on the family & clothing. This is a great little book to read someone in your family, as well as to practice your Spanish fluency! We talked about Semana Santa in Spain, and then learned some Pascua vocab. We wrapped up with a game of Mosca, and finished with CASCARONES!!! Have a wonderful Pascua break!
Today, we worked on our map of Spanish-speaking countries in the world, and naming them. We learned a "chiste" (joke) as well as a new "Fun Phrase". We worked on 2 Nursery Rhymes, and our fluency with singing them. Finally, we spent a little time in the lab on DuoLingo! Great work today!
Hoy, (today), we learned all about the world of Flamenco & the instrument castanets! We watched a couple videos about the dancers--male & female--and what they use for instruments (hands, feet, boxes, guitar, voice, castanets, etc.). We made our own castanets that the kids were able to take home today! Ask your child what he/she learned about flamenco today, and ask to see their castanets! Olé!!
Today we reviewed our classroom items vocab, as well as colors. We watched a video clip on a gentleman who is a castanet craftsman in Spain, and learned all about how he makes them and the art of the castanet/the sound it makes. We created our own, very simple version of a castanet. They are very easy to play!
Today we got to learn about Peru via some great pictures from "María's" dad who just traveled to Machu Picchu! We worked to finish up our vocab cards for "El día de San Patricio" & then played Memory with them. Great work today, niños!
Today we reinforced our "Día de San Patricio" vocab by playing a memory game. Also, Cumpleaños Felíz a Juana!
Great work today on our "Día de San Patricio" stuff! (St Patty's Day vocab). We learned a lot of new vocab, practiced it, and then worked to create a memory game that we will play next week! Felíz Día de San Patricio!!!
Today we celebrated "el cumpleaños" de Beatriz! Happy Birthday!
We also worked on words for "el Día de San Patricio" (St. Patrick's Day). We completed a puzzle to learn the words and created a memory game with the vocab!
