Una canción

patio

el patio de mi casa

el patio de mi casa es particular,
cuando llueve, se moja como los demás

H I J K L LL M A

que si tú no me quieres,
otro niño me querrá

H I J K L LL M A

que si tú no me quieres,
otro niño me querrá

chocolate, molido

Corre, corre que te pío

a chupé, a chupé

sentadito me querré

“Gota a gota, …

“Gota a gota, la mar se agota.”
Drop by drop, the sea dries up

This praises the virtue of constancy: “slow and steady” takes us a long way.

Some inspiration for the day!

el amor

Iced Strawberry Hearts

¡Feliz Día de los Enamorados! o (Día de San Valentín) o (Día de los Novios)!

With love on the brain today I thought I would share some new vocabulary!

el amor- love

los chocolates- chocolates

los dulces- sweets

el corazón- heart

el novio- boyfriend

la novia- girlfriend

las rosas- roses

las flores- flowers

las joyas- jewels

el anillo- ring

el collar- necklace

¡Qué tengas un buen día!

For those situations when you just need to know…

wordsI don’t know if some Spanish textbooks are including new vocabulary in their lessons, or if I just don’t remember but lately I have expanded (or reinforced) some of my more ‘technical’ or detailed Spanish vocabulary.

Some examples from current lessons:

el ocelote- ocelot (a wild cat that I don’t remember learning about in English)
el despacho- home office
el abrelatas- can opener (another lovely compound word…I love these because they make sense!)
Socorro- Help! (in an urgent situation–why do I not remember this one??)
el loro- parrot
el mono araña- spider monkey

Comment by a student: “I know that all this vocab is about animals and camping, but it really throws me off when they go from ‘iguana’ to ‘pillow’.”
–Had to share, made me laugh!
