Keeping it simple with my younger students, I read Just a Minute by Yuyi Morales to focus on numbers in Spanish. This week, the project we are working on is a counting book that includes numbers in English and Spanish and then a visual representation of those numbers. On Discovery Education, there is "The Hello Song" which is in English and Spanish and I've been playing that during class time, too.
2nd grade students will be watching a video of Yuyi Morales reading Nino Wrestles the World.
I was so excited when I found this because I really needed someone fluent in Spanish reading the story to students. What's even better?!? It's the author!!
I wonder what else my students and I will learn...
