Welcome to week four of our preschool Spanish class! Click here to see the week-by-week listing, and to access my still-in-process unit plans. You can also download my Unit 1– I’m offering it as a freebie so teachers can get a feel for my work. (If you like to create your own materials, it might help you get ideas for how to create activities from this series.)
Lesson 4 Goals: I can recognize the names of several familiar foods.
Target Structures: tiene hambre, come, toma, la manzana, la leche, el maíz, el pan, el agua
We are on the second line of Los pollitos: “cuando tienen hambre.”
Opener/1st Activity: We do our ¿Cómo te llamas? ball chant, and sing Buenos días.
I introduce la manzana, la leche, el pan, and el agua. It’s best to use real objects or toys if possible, when introducing new words. We practice saying each a few times, and I circle them a bit (¿Es una manzana? ¡No! ¿Es agua? ¡Sí!)
I have brought cutouts of la manzana, la leche, el pan, and el agua. I pass them out to everyone and we practice following directions using the props. I say, come el pan; they search for the the right picture, and pretend to eat it.
Movement/brain break: We stretch with our movement words: levántense, siéntense, manos arriba, and manos abajo, corre and salta.
(Another option would be Duck, Duck, Goose in Spanish. My kiddos can’t get enough of it!)
2nd Activity: We vote on favorite foods and make a graph. I’ve prepared little cards with names ahead of time since we’ll repeat this activity, but post-its would work as well.
Closing: I tell the story El caballo que tiene hambre, available below. Sorry about the different horses as the graphics- I had trouble finding pictures of horsing eating and running that all looked the same! The term uvas is included, and will show up later throughout the unit. You shouldn’t need to define, however, as the students will understand the word from the pictures.
