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!

****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.

  1. LANGUAGE: Watch the THE PATO SHOW, #6. It is about bread and butter and more low-key than other episodes. If it is adventure you seek, watch Episode #5 above!
  2. This video has more instructions, with my smiling face. 🙂
  3. CULTURE: There is a mountain/montaña in Peru near Machu Picchu that looks like a rainbow! It is called Vinicunca, which means “Rainbow Mountain”.
  4. Respond to the activity on Seesaw with a photo of your rainbow creation.

Spanish Activity, 4/14/20- K

  1. Watch the new Pato video below.
  2. Watch it again and this time, count how many times you hear the word, “policía” (police).
  3. Finally, send me some feedback by describing your favorite part of the video!

Spanish Activity, 4/14/20- JK

  1. Watch the new Pato video below.**
  2. Send me some feedback after your child watches the video. You can do any of the following:
    • Describe their favorite part of the show.
    • Send messages of what they learn from the video.
    • 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–especially because this has to be something different than last week!).

**NOTE: If your child did not see the optional video posted on the journal feed last week (Pato Show #3), s/he might want to do that first (but you don’t have to!). #4 includes a recap of part of #3 anyway, so it is not a big deal–just thought I’d offer for the sake of plot continuity.


Spanish Activity, 4/7/20- K

  1. Watch the new Pato video below.
  2. 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.
  3. 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, 4/7/20- JK

  1. Watch the video on Seesaw and encourage your child to sing along with the songs. Note that Seesaw cut me off at the end. I recorded it several times but could not manage to get through our daily routine AND the story in five minutes. Ah well… c’est la vie.
  2. In other news, look for another Pato iMovie coming soon! I’m going to echo Mandarin class here to help make things more consistent on your end, and ask you to send some feedback this week after your child watches the video. You can do any of the following:
    • Record them when they watch the video.
    • Send messages of what they learn from the video.*
    • 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).

*If they are not sure what to say, here is a guide: Was it raining during the story? What word means, “rain” in Spanish (la lluvia/”you-bee-ah”)? Did Pato take a BARCO (boat) or COCHE (car) to the ISLA (island)?, etc. Do you think there is a TESORO (“tay-SORE-oh”/treasure) on the ISLA? Or a TIBURÓN (“tea-bore-R(OWN)”/shark)? What is your favorite song in Spanish class? Can you sing part of it?

**At the end of the video, Pato is describing something that happened on the isla (island/”eese-lah”). PREDICTION: What/who do you think was chasing him and his friends (amigos)?


Spanish Activity, 3/31/20- K

  1. Watch the Pato video below.
  2. Listen for the question, “¿Dónde está Pato?” (Where is Pato?)
  3. Choose ONE thing that you are always losing.
  4. Make a short video of yourself looking for that thing in your house and/or outside.
  5. 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 Activity, 3/31/20- JK

  1. Watch the Pato video below.
  2. Answer these two questions in a short video:
    1. In the end, we learn that Pato took a boat to an “isla”/ island (“eese-lah”). What does “isla” mean in Spanish?
    2. What do you think will happen with Pato next?

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.
