Review: ¿Cómo te llamas? ball chant, songs, and Bingo.
Activity 1: 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. Practice saying each a few times, and circle them a bit (¿Es una manzana? ¡No! ¿Es agua? ¡Sí!)
Have cutouts of la manzana, la leche, el pan, and el agua ready for everyone. Pass them out, and practice following directions using the props. Say, come el pan; they search for the the right picture, and pretend to eat it.
2nd Activity: Tell the story El caballo que tiene hambre, available below. 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.
Activity 3: Vote on favorite foods and make a graph. I prepared little cards with names ahead of time, since we’ll repeat this activity, but post-its would work as well. This is a fun way to get in lots of repetition of the food names as you ask and point to the pictures.
Movement/brain break: Stretch with our movement words: levántate, siéntate, 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!
