Fiesta de los animales

While the mom's away, the pets will play?



One day last week I told the boys to bring their stuffed animals to the classroom when they started schoolwork because we needed extra "students" for that day's Spanish lesson.  The boys did more than that.  I took pictures of what I found when they told me they were ready to begin.












I have a couple of posts scheduled for later this week.  There will be more on the layers of the atmosphere, radiant heat, and a school days wrap up.  Hopefully more.  Our very real pet has been messing with my schedule.

    1. Mi favorito no es el real. Los animales falsos son tranquilos. Los ninios tinian un monton de diversion.

    2. Oh, and there was a bear behind the African mask and one duck. I could NOT find the duck picture yesterday and when I uploaded photos today, there it was. It got stuck on the memory card.

  3. What a fun way to start your day! I can't remember if you've talked about your Spanish program before; I'd love to know what you use and how you like it. People frequently ask me for recommendations, but we didn't need a program for second language learners since my children have always spoken it. So I'm always looking for ideas to share with those who ask me!

    1. I really DO need to post about it. I haven't been motivated to post about it because it isn't something everyone can buy and use. I used to teach Spanish at a K-8 school and I am using the same program with my kids I picked myself to use in the school. It is called "Viva el Espanol" and comes in "Learning Systems." Each learning system has audio CD's, a puppet, blackline masters, story books, posters, etc., I picked it to use in the school because it was the most "Montessori" of my options. It rely's on three-period lessons and TPR commands. It is an "immersion" program, so the kids learn to speak Spanish in Spanish. The problem is that each learning system is $1000 if you buy it from the publisher. I've never called to ask if they have "homeschool" price or anything, but should because I only have learning system A and B picked up off of Ebay. I've only found learning system C for $300 which is still too expensive for our purposes. https://www.mheonline.com/program/view/1/15/486/0076020096/
