Jardín de Infantes


abril / mayo

We have enjoyed learning about the famous “artista español,” Pablo Picasso, and many of his very unique painting styles. Some puzzles that depicted his art-work helped us learn about his “blue” and “pink/red” periods which helped us know how he was feeling when he painted. We learned that the first word he said when he began to speak was, “el lápiz”.

We have also been acting out the story and singing about “los pollitos” which is an authentic children’s song in many Spanish-speaking countries.

Bailando como pollitos 
Coloreando los pollitos
We will soon be learning about new and different “animals,” their body parts, what they sound like in Spanish, how they move and what they feel like if you can pet them.


"El Gato Hernán"


febrero / marzo



This month we had our Valentine’s day celebration. We played different “heart” games and practiced many descriptive words. The “heart” story we read had to do with different feelings and we were able to see and count many of the hearts in maestra’s huge collection!





Next we celebrated the milestone of the 100th day of school. Can you believe it?
Cien (100) has become one of our new favorite words to say.
We also have been singing our Ciempies (centipede) song a lot to celebrate this big number.
We also have a new exercise song in which we vary our movements every ten numbers until we reach 100!


“Ay, las frutas” is our new favorite song that helps us practice all the fruits that we like (and others that we don’t like so much).

Ay, las Frutas

Bienvenidos back to school! 
I hope you had an enjoyable and relaxing winter break.

In Kindergarten, we are back in the swing of things
and are learning all about transportation.

This is one of our songs, which kids in Spanish-speaking 
countries also love to sing in Kindergarten!

(Bubba descubriendo los transportes)

On January 6th we were visited by the Reyes Magos, who left prizes in our shoes outside of the classroom! All this happened while we were enjoying a typical “Rosca de Reyes” baked with a traditional surprise inside.

Have a happy, enjoyable and relaxing time over the Holidays. See you in 2017!

This holiday season, we've been learning about all of our favorite toys.

Tin Tin



noviembre - 2016
















El plato, el bol, el tenedor, el cuchillo and la cuchara
have been part of our latest vocabulary unit.




Students especially like the song, El Payaso Plin-Plin, which we are learning. It is a children’s classic in Spanish-speaking countries.





“Don tomate y las vocales” is a favorite song in our repertoire for practicing sounds of the vowels.


Also, we are excited to practice different body parts! Ask your child what new words they know!
