If you liked our last blog and you manage to do that lessons with your group during the day perhaps you will like to try this other one that it works as well as the last one.
Idiomas que hablamos / Languages we speak
- Usual greetings to the children. ¿Qué tal? (How are you?)
Main Spanish activities:
- Practise greeting in pairs.
- Listen to a song. (note:2) Children will practise greetings and they will try to identify the words. Children put the words of the song in the correct order.
- Sing a song to consolidate greetings and play a game with the song In 4 groups.
- They show the answers every time we stop the song.
- Revise ¿Qué tal? Muy bien. ¿Y tú? Introduce an alternative answer – Mal (Not well) or regular (ok)– by showing your thumbs down or drawing a sad face on the board. Invite children to give different answers to the class.
- Reinforce ¡Buenos días! (Good morning!) ¡Buenas tardes! (Good afternoon!) and ¡Buenas noches!.
- We all sang the song at the end of the class.
- At the end of the session, wave goodbye and say ¡Adiós!
There are a lot of different providers supplying Spanish songs. Select the one you like most for greetings. Cut the words in order to make a puzzle and to prepare the game. Make it big. Alternatively you could make the children to write down the words in a big paper. Then you cut the words and play. You could make as many teams as you like. Maybe as many as the tables groups. If it is the case every table group could copy the words. Now we cut the words in say five, six or seven pieces. You decided. Important Note: Maybe you prefer to have this ready to safe time. If that was the case remember the children are not aware at all about that new song. Don’t make the cuts to difficult.
In this lesson children should learn:
- To listen attentively and understand everyday classroom language.
- To respond to easy greetings and to be able to greet others as well.
The objectives of this lesson are:
- Respond to and say ¡Buenos días, Buenas tardes, buenas noches! ¡Hola! and ¡Adiós! ¿Qué tal? And ¿Cómo estás? Muy bien, muy mal…
- Listen and try to write correct sounds.
