Supplies Needed:

A few paper plates

Lesson Specifics:

Give each student his own paper plate.  Ask questions like, “Qué es esto?”, What is this?  “Porqué lo usas?” Why do you use it? “Qué color es?” What color is it? Etc.

Then ask the children, what are your favorite foods?  Give them the Spanish words for each food and use it in a sentence.

Example: “What’s your favorite food?”  Qué es tu comida favorita?”

–Apples!

“Manzanas! Me encantan las manzanas!”  Apples!  I love apples! “Qué color es la manzana?” What color is an apple?

–Red

“Roja! Sí, la manzana es roja!” Dibuja una manzana en el plato.  Draw an apple on your plate.

I love lessons like this because you are teaching so much more than one concept! If you want to add to it, also incorporate shapes!
