Lesson 2: Dice and Me llamo Lesson for Preschool Spanish

by | Sep 24, 2016

Inside: Activities for a ¿Cómo te llamas? and me llamo lesson for preschool Spanish classes. 

 

Lesson 2 Goals: I can say my name. I can recognize some animals by name. 

Target Structures: ¿Cómo te llamas? Me llamo…, dice

(Los animales de la granja are introduced this lesson. At this point, the goal is just to recognize their names, not necessarily name them like in Lesson 3. They’re mainly here to learn dice.)

Movement/brain breaks: Stretch with movement words: levántate, siéntate, manos arriba, and manos abajo, corre, and salte, Duck, Duck, Goose in Spanish, or ¡Salta, salta!

 

 

¿CÓMO TE LLAMAS? & ME LLAMO LESSON FOR PRESCHOOL

 

ACTIVITY 3

 

Introduce ¿Cómo te llamas? and Me llamo. Model for a bit (the pollito puppet from the last lesson works well to act this out.) For example:

Teacher: – ¡Buenos días!
Pollito: – ¡Buenos días!

Pollito: – ¿Cómo te llamas?
Teacher: – Me llamo…

Then, ask the kids their names. The video below, from Mundo de Pepita, is really helpful in seeing how to this sort of modeling and interacting with the students. 

 

ACTIVITY 3

 

Review Los pollitos dicen and sing using the pollito puppets. Circle dice again: ¿El pollito dice: <muu>? ¡No! ¿El elefante dice: <pío>? ¡No! ¿El pollito dice: <pío>? ¡Sí! etc. Introduce more farm animas with these farm-animals-printouts and circle those. ¿El caballo dice: <pío pío>? ¡No! ¿El caballo dice: <nii>? ¡Sí!

ACTIVITY 2

 

Have the students sit in a circle, and pass a ball. While passing the ball, chant, ¿Có-mo te lla-mas, có-mo te lla-mas, có-mo te lla-mas TÚ? Whoever has the ball on tú answers: Me llamo ______.  It’s okay if they only say their name right now. Usually the kids clamor for a turn, but if the ball lands on someone shy, they can pass it to a neighbor. No need to force output!

I often use this chant as a warm-up for circle time as we start class. 

 

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.
