by | Sep 17, 2016

Inside: Greetings activities in preschool Spanish, through a ¿Cómo estás? and ¡Buenos días! lesson.


Lesson 1 Goals:
I can greet my teacher and friends.

Target Structuresbuenos días, ¿Cómo estás?, Muy bien, gracias, el pollito, and dice.

Click to see my outline of Preschool Spanish Lessons for Los pollitos dicen. (Most lessons provides enough material for multiple classes.)

Movement/brain breaks: Stretch with movement words: levántate, siéntate, manos arriba, and manos abajo. I just say them while modeling, and eventually the kids understand the words on their own.

 

SPANISH GREETINGS LESSON FOR PRESCHOOL

 

ACTIVITY 1

 

Teach the song Buenos días. This will be a good way to start future classes, and you can teach the whole song, or just focus on the buenos días line.

 

As you learn the song, do motions for each part (stretching in the morning, hands up, questioning, for how are you, thumbs up, and pointing to a friend for usted).

 

ACTIVITY 3

 

Now that greetings are underway, teach the first line to Los pollitos: Los pollitos dicen pío, pío, pío. Show the chick puppet (free printable) to teach el pollito, and move the mouth for pío, pío.

Circle both pollito and dice. (Provide repetitions around the phrases.) ¿El pollito dice <muu>? ¡No! ¿El elefante dice <pío>? ¡No! ¿El pollito dice <pío? ¡Sí! etc. Once the kids feel comfortable with that phrase, give them their own little chick, and practice singing the first line several times.

This will come in handy when we do ¿Cómo te llamas? next lesson!

 

ACTIVITY 2

 

Teach buenos días, buenas tardes, and buenas noches with the picture cards (included in the Unit 1 free download). The morning, afternoon, and night picture cards can be given to each student, or just used by the teacher. It could be a special student job to hold them while singing the greeting song, as well!

You could also have the students color the cards and then hold them up as you say “buenas días” or “buenas noches.”
