¡Hola Amigos!

  • During the week of August 8, Discoveries campers will sing the chants:  “La araña pequeñita” and “El Osito” (The Itsy Bitsy Spider and Little Bear). They will also decorate their “ositos” faces (little bear faces) to use during retelling the story “Ricitos de Oro y los tres ositos” (Goldilocks and the Three Bears).
  • In addition, campers will learn the color “anaranjado” (orange) and review the other colors by playing “Pescando” (Going Fishing). They will also say and sing the numbers 1-20 in Spanish and the month “Agosto” (August)!

Semana de Diversión

  • During the week of August 1, Discoveries campers will act out the story Ricitos de Oro y los Tres Ositos (Goldilocks and the Three Bears). Then campers will play a “fishing game” with the vocabulary words they’ve learned in the both stories: Llama Llama Rojo Pijama and Ricitos de Oro y  los tres Ositios.  
  • Campers will also continue learning the Spanish children’s song A la Rueda, Rueda. While campers sing, they will take each other by the hands, forming a circle and at the end all the kids fall down (carefully) and pretend to be sleeping!
  • Additionally campers will continue learning their Spanish numbers up to 10 and learn some more colors  including azul , café, negro, rojo, y amarillo (blue, brown, black red and yellow)!
