Today we learned about El Tiempo. We sang the song Oigo El Trueno (I Hear Thunder). But repetition really helps when learning a 2nd (or 3rd) language. Here is a great method for learning Spanish while encouraging recognition of mathematical patterns. It works with any vocabulary too!
You spot the pattern and work out which word or symbol goes at the end. The repetition of language worked really well: we read it together as a group; then I went around the table and helped them read it individually; then finally we all read it out aloud.
Finally we made a cloud mobile, inspired by this link. Sometimes I suggest a craft and it's leapt upon; other times my suggestion is a jumping off point for different craft ideas. Maybe the craft resources suggest themselves in different ways. So today we ended up with 3 cloud mobiles, one fairy and one flower. It's all good as you can encourage lots of vocab by being flexible!
