“Some things are taught and many other ones are learned from experience”.
Is very important to review constantly the vocabulary that has been taught. The same effort that we put in teaching new vocabulary is the one we need to have in keeping the vocabulary they have acquired fresh in their memory. Words will then start to come out naturally with little effort.
Ultimately what we look for is to add complexity to their knowledge. We instruct by putting together vocabulary like a puzzle, incorporating words that allow them to start describing and talking about themselves, as well as their family, animals, and surroundings.
Flow of the Day
- Use the “Hola” song to start the day and initiate a greeting conversation. (This is a great opportunity to review feelings)
- Spend a few minutes reviewing some vocabulary:
- Sing the songs and do the motions, use “Mi Libro de Español” to review vocabulary playing games (go to worksheets icon to find out more) or play simple “Question and Answer” games.
3. New vocabulary: In the page FAQ under How to teach with this program, you will find instructions on how to teach new vocabulary.
