Bilingual Wednesdays- November words for the litte ones

November teachable moments come with new words to celebrate Thanksgiving Day also in Spanish.

My goals for this lesson:
To introduce and practice new words related to Thanksgiving.
To relate words and pictures

To introduce new words I collected some pictures and made flashcards. I wrote the English word in one side and the Spanish in the other side. I put the flashcards in an envelope and let kids “peep” through a hole there. I asked them to identify the pictures and name them.
After playing with the cards I introduced the new words in Spanish. We are used to do many things with new words like clapping, stomping, shouting, whispering, dancing, miming and singing the words.

To practice and consolidate the new words I made these matching cards. 

or you can use the cards as a concentration game
