Here's a brief update from the last two weeks.
As you know, we have been working in two groups separately. This was a positive change not only because of the difference in each level but also because of the age group difference. For the past two weeks we worked in a variety of topics: shapes, colors, numbers, routines, parts of the house, and parts of the body. We had lots of fun, learned new vocabulary, played twister, talked about our houses and routines; in addition, the members of this group are getting to know each other better.
We are also reading one short book per week as well as learning new songs and games in Spanish. Theses books come from the public library, so if you're interested to know what we are reading, don't hesitate to email me, and I'll be glad to send you the titles and authors, so you can check them out at the library too.
Here are some pictures of some activities from this week about our discussion about parts of the house & samples of the mini-book the kids created showing their daily routines in order 1st (primero), 2nd (segundo), 3rd (tercero), and Last (ultimo).:
|First: wake up|
|Second: get dress|
|Ultimo: eating breakfast|
|One of the kids included in his routine our Spanish classes. I was glad to see he drew smiles on the faces of the students. It counts as an indicator that they are enjoying the classes!|
|We discussed how many rooms and other elements are in each child's house.|
