Winter Classes – Clothing

Monday, January 21st, 2013

We have explored winter words during the past three weeks and clothing is a very difficult topic to explore since there is so much involved. We started by talking about what they were wearing in our Spanish and Portuguese Classes in South Jersey! We cut and glued some pieces into our small dolls!

We also placed clothing on frosty, I made an oversized one and they had to built it part by part, saying the name of body parts and clothing.

Second class, we did a show and tell with clothes and shoes they brought from home and winter toys! So much fun!

We used this video, they loved it! Please remember this is a video about a girl talking about her aunt and they both cow girls, so the aunt carries a gun besides describing the vocabulary, I passed that part of the video to my students!

I think bringing it close to the students, what they wear, makes a lot easier to teach such a hard subject with such a large vocabulary!

Please share how you teach your students and children about ropas, roupas, clothing!

Ropas- What to wear!

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

This week some of our classes had the theme Ropas we started by learning basic vocabulary: 

Vestido – dress                                                                                                                                           Pantalones – pants

                                                                   Shortes/bermudas – shorts

Falda – skirt

                                                                                                                  Camisa – shirt

                             Blusa – blouse

                                                                                                                                            Zapatos – shoes

                   Sandalias – sandals 

We then worked on drawing clothes for our ninos y ninas:

The results were amazing and they took home versions which could be altered to review other clothing vocabulary.

Some of the samples below were done by 3/4 year olds!

We played a hide and seek game with clothing items where they won a point if they shouted the name of the item. Encontre la camisa!

We looked at two pictures of a boy and a girl at the beach and talked about what they were wearing. Me gusta el sombrero, no me gustan las sandalias…..

We watched el negro cirilo pro Guia Infantil:

We ended the class looking at what we were wearing and talking about it!

Hope you enjoyed our class! Please let us know! if you wish to download a free coloring page, please click here!
