¡Frio, tibio, CALIENTE! Don't be surprised if you hear your pre-k student using these words around the house, as they have been integral in recent playtime in the pre-k Spanish classroom. Pre-k students are continuing to practice talking about the weather, the seasons, colors, numbers, body parts, movement words, and animals. Recently they have been hiding animals and giving clues in Spanish to their classmates to help them find the hidden friends. They have also been learning a cute song about what happens to a "muñeco de nieve" (snowman) when the sun comes out, and getting to dress each other up in fun "muñeco de nieve" outfits, helping them to learn the names of clothing items and to reinforce color and body part vocabulary. Singing and games involving songs and chants are a big part of how the pre-k class is learning Spanish, so don't hesitate to try some of the songs at home to see how much your pre-k student has learned.
