¡Bienvenidos al invierno!
¿Qué pasa en la clase de Español?
First and second grade students have been learning about "Body parts"
They can point their own body parts responding to:
¿Dónde esta la nariz? aquí está la nariz
¿Dónde está la boca? aquí está la boca
¿Dónde está la cabeza aquí está la cabeza
Second grade worked on a monster project describing them
El monstruo tiene........... pero no tiene...........
September - January
I can’t believe it has already been three months since we started our school year and now, with the arrival of winter, there is so much going on in Spanish class! The K-2 students have been learning vocabulary that we are incorporating in our daily routine so they can identify days of the week and describe the weather using simple structures such as:
¿Qué día es? (What day is today?)
Hoy es lunes, martes….. (Today is Monday, Tuesday….)
¿Qué tiempo hace hoy? (What is the weather like today?)
Hoy está soleado está nublado, hace frío, hace calor.... (It is sunny, cloudy, cold, hot….)
Our second graders are doing a great job with being able to say the date in Spanish, using the classroom calendar.
Little by little, we will add more and more words that students can use. When we have a snow day, we will teach the expressions: está nevando or está lloviendo (it is snowing and it is raining).
Along with learning all of the winter weather conditions, students are learning the parts of the body through an activity we created featuring a snowman lesson appropriately called, “El muñeco de nieve.
Here is a link for a song we are teaching during class. Perhaps you could click the link and ask your child to sing it to you!
Here, also are several body parts songs we have been teaching during class:
The kindergarteners are having a blast learning Spanish this year. With the help of Fritzy, a Spanish-speaking mouse, we have been learning about animals—their names, sounds they make, and what they can do. It makes me very proud to ask them in Spanish “Que es eso?” (“What is this?”) and “Que dice?” (“What does it say?”) and to have them answer back in Spanish with the correct answers without any help.
Here are some links for the songs that we have been singing in class:
1st and 2nd graders have a new friend who is called, “Pocoyo.” Pocoyo is a main character in a children’s video. By using these videos to teach Spanish during class, students are learning high frequency Spanish words such as:
Amigos - friends
Quiere - wants
No quiere - doesn’t want
Juga - plays
Vuela - flies
Tiene - has
