SPANISH ACTIVITY, 4/21/20- JK, K
OBJECTIVE: This week, the goal is to include both language and culture. If this feels like too much for your family, please email me!
- CULTURE: There is a mountain/montaña in Peru near Machu Picchu that looks like a rainbow! It is called Vinicunca, which means “Rainbow Mountain”.
- Look at a few IMAGES here, or
- Skip to 1:32 in this video HERE.
- Now that you have an idea of what it looks like, check out THIS LIST and create some sort of rainbow product to represent the mountain. If you need direction, here are a few suggestions:
- Respond to the activity on Seesaw with a photo of your rainbow creation.
****If you want to know what happens next to “Evil Pato”, you can watch this video here: THE PATO SHOW, #5. If you did not like “Evil Pato”, you may skip this.
SPANISH ACTIVITY, 4/14/20- K
- Watch THE PATO SHOW, #4.
- Watch it again and this time, count how many times you hear the word, “policía” (police).
- Finally, send me some feedback by describing your favorite part of the video!
SPANISH ACTIVITY, 4/7/20- K
- Watch THE PATO SHOW, #3.
- Make a big, colorful sign that says “Fiesta” (party) and on the other side that says, “Siesta” (nap), and take a picture of what you feel like doing now.
- Finally, send me some feedback. You can:
- Record them when they watch the video.
- Send messages of what they learn from the video (e.g., FIESTA/party is not the same as SIESTA/nap!).
- Predict what is going to happen next.
- Ask your child to find something s/he knows in Spanish from the house (might be harder–production is the last step in language acquisition).
SPANISH ACTIVITY, 3/31/20- K
- Watch THE PATO SHOW, #2.
- Listen for the question, “¿Dónde está Pato?” (Where is Pato?)
- Choose ONE thing that you are always losing.
- Make a short video of yourself looking for that thing in your house and/or outside.
- Make sure you ask, “¿Dónde está……………?” at least three times in the video. You can say it in a normal voice, a loud voice, a soft voice, a silly voice, or a lot of different voices… really, any kind of voice you like! Have fun!
**You can extend this activity by playing Hide and Go Seek with someone–counting in Spanish (uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco) and then asking aloud, “¿Dónde está…………… [John, Fred, Lisa, etc.]?”
SPANISH REQUEST, 3/19/20- JK, K

SCHEDULE NOTE, 3/19/20- JK, K
Spanish classes will be held on Tuesdays during Continued Learning. Because we did not have class this week, I have written a LETTER WITH SOME IDEAS of how to continue your Spanish study. Everything is optional. Please enjoy!
OTHER NOTES, 3/19/20-JK, K
**Students in JK-2 should watch two 4-7 minute cartoons in the target language this week–preferably on separate days. HERE is a list of links, including Pocoyo, Perro y Gato, and Caillou in Spanish. Listening to SONGS in the target language counts, too. Just make sure you don’t sing the English lyrics over the Spanish if it is translated!
Note that it would be beneficial to build into your home schedule that children watch these shows at a specific day and time, for example, 2x per week, when you are preparing breakfast or dinner and need a few minutes alone. The more predictable the routine, the better.
