Somehow 3 months of blogging have gotten away from me! Given that this was my first year of teaching a Spanish Immersion preschool, I have been thrilled with how much Spanish the kids have learned and the success of an immersion program.
There is too much to catch up on in one post but one of the kids new favorite songs/games is "Jugaremos en el bosque" (We will play in the forest). The kids taunt a wolf as they sing, "We will play in the forest while the wolf isn't around because when he appears he will eat us all. Wolf, are you there?" The wolf responds that he is brushing his teeth, or bathing, or putting on his pants or his shirt until finally he comes out to eat all the children. We'd only sung it for a week, when I overheard my son and another of my students playing on their own outside of class. They were incorporating all the pieces of clothing we'd learned. "I'm putting on my shirt. I'm putting on my socks." Always makes me smile when they speak Spanish impromptu :)
Here is a link to the song... Juguemos en el bosque
***Starting June 4th I'm going to do a summer class for children with their parents, I still have room for a few more students. If you'd like more information, click on the "summer classes" link on the right and feel free to contact me with any questions.
