Parachute Time in Spanish Class

Saturday, September 22, 2012

Here are some fun activities to try in Spanish class:

• Have the children move around the room while saying marcha (march)¬ and have them stop by saying para (stop). Do the same with the other actions: salta (jump), arriba (put hands up), abajo (put hands down), adentro (go inside the circle), afuera (go outside the circle).

• Use a parachute for active play or a sheet, and have the children do the previous actions. Place an object in the middle of the parachute/fabric, preferable an object related to the themes explore before (numbers, colors, animals, etc) to link the lessons.

Use this song while playing with the parachute!

Marcha, marcha, marcha,
Marcha, marcha, marcha 1-2-3.
Arriba, abajo, arriba, abajo
Arriba, abajo 1-2-3.
Adentro, afuera, dentro, afuera,

Fun For Spanish Teachers

Celebrate "El Día Internacional de La Paz"

Thursday, September 20, 2012

September 21st is the International Day of Peace. What a great opportunity to make it a teachable moment and connect our Spanish curriculum to this important celebration. We can get our students thinking about peace and what it means by a simple project where they can also involve their new language skills.

This is a very simple craft children can personalize, take home, and share more with their families. It's a very simple necklace made of cardboard and yarn. 

Click on the picture below to download the template for your students to use to create their own necklaces.
Colombian singer, Juanes has a beautiful song called "Paz, Paz, Paz."  Put together a sing-along using this song or use it as background music while the children put their necklace activity together.

Somos la nueva semilla del futuro, de la vida,
Somos los niños que cantan por la paz y la esperanza.
Somos la nueva semilla del futuro, de la vida.
Somos los niños que cantan por la paz y la esperanza.

Dame la mano, vamos todos a soñar con la paz,
Dame la mano, vamos todos a soñar con la paz.

¡Paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz,
Paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz, paz!

Have fun celebration peace in class!

A Chant That Teaches Greetings and Introductions in Spanish

Thursday, September 13, 2012
Chants are a great way to provide space for repetition and also put sentences that sometimes could be boring to practice into a rhythm and context. Plus, chants help memory! 

I learned from Mama World that this song is called "Ambó Ató," and it  is based on a traditional song that has its origins in France and later was translated and sung in many Spanish speaking countries.

The rhythm of this song is very catchy and can easily be used to involve everyone in class.  Just create new sentences and replace the main sentences in the song and get ready to have your class singing.
This is an example of how the song can be used:

Have fun singing in Spanish!

A Song to Welcome The Fall: "Hojas, Hojas"

Thursday, September 6, 2012


Fall will be here soon! What a great opportunity to play with colors in Spanish. Here are some idea to use this song:

Imitate the sound of the wind and the freshness of the fall to introduce this activity.
Use pictures of different seasons and ask the class “¿es verano?”, “¿es primavera?”.
Give time for answers and go through every season until you get to “otoño”.
Introduce the word “hojas” and then sing the song while throwing plastic fall leaves in the circle. Have children explore different colors and help by naming them.

Have fun singing in Spanish!
