Topic: My Family ~ Mi familia (Day 5)
Vamos a jugar – Let’s Play
Game/Activity: Go online to PBSKids Dragon Tales. The character Quetzal reads a cute storybook called, Search for Mami. As the friends travel through Dragon Land to places like the playground and Rainbow River, there are many pictures and Spanish words for your child to click on to hear the Spanish pronunciation.
Es la hora de decir adiós (It’s time to say goodbye)
Song: “We are Little Friends” – Track #2 We are Little Amigos cd
Praise and Encouragement in Spanish: Try to use 3 Spanish words or phrases of praise and encouragement today and throughout the week. Fill in the third one. (You’ll find the list in Bonus #2*)
1. Déjame ver – Let me see.
2. ¡Qué bonito/a! – How beautiful!
Throughout the day and week, in addition to Spanish Time! above:
- Review all activities while in the car, bathtub, or whenever teachable moments arise.
- Put on Spanish kid shows, let your Spanish music cd play as background music while your child is eating or playing.
- Read the English version of your Spanish-English book to your child a few times to get her familiar with the vocabulary and story. At other times, read it in Spanish. You could also turn your bilingual books in audio books by asking a Spanish-speaking friend to record herself reading in Spanish.
