Today we had to cancel little one's Spanish immersion class due to bad weather. It was raining heavily, it was foggy, and the drive to the center is quite a ways. So I preferred not to drive in that type of weather, so we stayed home. Of course, we had our at-home Spanish lessons with Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? We don't have the Spanish book so I translated for little one. You can find the Spanish one here: Oso pardo, oso pardo, ¿qué ves ahí?
We used Spanish color flash cards so little one can match them to the colors of the animals, and then he matched them to the coloring pages. (That I found here.) As he matched the colors with the animals, he would also say out loud the colors and animal names. The repetition of the colors and animals, and the rhythm makes it easy for little one to remember, and develop his Spanish literacy.
Afterwards, he got serious, and was very busy coloring his pages. He then asked if he can cut them out to make puppets! I was happy to oblige, because it just comes to show how creative he can be! It never even crossed my mind to make puppets! Ha! :)
I taped popsicle sticks to each animal, the teacher and the children cut-outs so he can play with them. He and his Daddy even did a puppet show for me! :)
Story time in Spanish, learning new colors and animals, and making puppet shows kept him busy for a few hours. This boy keeps me on my toes, and now I'm thinking and working on our next "At-home Spanish lessons" :)
¡Hasta la próxima!
