Each class starts with Buenos Dias by Jose Luis Orozco. Then, I ask each child their name and they respond with "Me llamo..." We also reviewed all the animals we have learned by playing a simple animal bingo game.
We reviewed the "Cabeza, Hombros, Rodillas y Pies"song. I had them repeat the middle part "Ojos, orejas, boca and nariz" by singing that part like 8 times! Each time we sang it differently. They had to jump for each body part as they pointed, close their eyes, whisper, go on tippy toes, etc.
Next, I cute out a simple flannel board monster that went with some lyrics I made up to the tune of "Soy una Pizza" by Charlotte Diamond. If you don't know the song, you can find it here. I love how the children repeat each phrase in the song. Here are the lyrics that I made to go along with monsters:
Soy un monstruo
Con 4 ojos
y una boca
y mucho pelo
Soy un monstruo
y grito "roar"
I passed out one part of the face to each student and they put it up when we sang that part.
Then, we read "Fuera de Aqui, Horroroso monstruo verde" (Go Away, Big Green Monster). This one is an easy one to translate if you know Spanish. I found a great printable here that I printed and sorted (it took a little while to put in order) for each child to take home. You don't even need the book to use the printable. The kids love saying, "Fuera de aqui....ojos"
I also found a great video that I showed to the kids. The words are all in English, so I just muted the sound and said what it should be in Spanish. The kids again enjoyed telling the different facial features to go away
and watch that part disappear.
We finished by making monsters out of play dough. I was happy that a couple of the kids remembered and said many of the parts of the face in Spanish as they were making theirs.
This is a 10 week class and I wish I could post every class here, but I have to focus on teaching my kiddos. I hope this is useful to someone!
