Spanish Phrase of the Week
En la clase hay lápices amarillos y rojos. ¿De cúales otros colores son los lápices?
In the classroom there are yellow and red pencils. What other colors are the pencils?
It's quite a mouthful, but our Claxton language leaders are up to it! We've spent the past several weeks practicing different ways to talk about the pencils we find in our classrooms: in the singular or plural, in different colors, and in statements and questions.
We're loving this short rap about the classroom. Keep watching -- los lápices están allí!
And if you've got 10 minutes, try this video that reinforces the Spanish words for different colors and applies them to all sorts of objects, giving kids a great chance for some mini-immersion.
