Lesson 5 Goals: I can say that I like or don’t like something.
Target Structures: me gusta, no me gusta, te gusta
(Las uvas, la zanahoria, el queso, la galleta, la lechuga, and los arándanos are also introduced. At this point, they are always presented with pictures or props. Only the target structures are meant to be acquired at this point. Having variety in the foods is fun for book, games, and songs. They can be learned naturally throughout the entire unit.)

Review: Sings the songs learned so far, ¿Cómo te llamas? ball chant, Los animales Bingo.
Activity 1: Introduce the new foods. Use props or toys if you can!
Activity 3: Play Bingo with pictures of the foods. To keep the language as “whole” as possible, I call out the terms as Me gusta el helado. Me gustan las uvas. If the words are very new, show a picture as you call out the term.
Activity 4: Play ¿Qué hay en la bolsa? again, from Lesson 3. Have bags ready with toy foods inside, or sneak foods into one bag for each turn. Sit in a circle, and the kids take turns getting a bag. They have to put their hand in the bag and guess what food is inside just by feeling it. Once they guess the food, we talk about it. ¿Te gusta el maíz? ¿El perro come el maíz? etc.
Activity 5: Do TPR with the words learned so far. Say a word or phrase, and they act it out. El gato dice miau, come la manzana, toma agua, etc. This is a perfect time to watch what everyone is doing and get a check on the pace of the lessons. Always go as slow as necessary, repeating games and activities as needed. These lessons are packed with new targets, so if anything is shaky I take extra time before moving onto the next lesson.
Movement/brain break: We stretch with our movement words: levántate, siéntate, manos arriba, and manos abajo, corre, salta, nada.
