GoNoodle ’s Back to School Blogger Blitz

gonoodle español

I just love GoNoodle! My kids love it too. And it is free!

What else can you ask for?

Some of my teacher friends don’t use it because it is not in Spanish. But this it can be easily adapted.

Here you can see a screenshot I took of my computer.

My kids do not understand most of the brain breaks. They find them funny but they just don’t understand. So what I do is that I use the dance/run ones. They even catch some of the lyrics. Zumba is easy but their favorite is Koo Koo Kagaroo.

One of the things that I like about GoNoodle is Maximo or the other relaxing videos. My kids don’t understand them at all. They just can’t follow.

What can you do? Just click on the YouTube icon and add what you need. We all have our favorite Spanish songs, chants… I added some relaxing ones and the times tables songs. So worth it!

Once you have the videos that you like you just use them in the classroom.

As soon as we started GoNoodling in the classroom parents asked me about it. You can invite them to use it at home by sending a letter home.

I have created some Spanish posters. Feel free to use them :) There are some great printables on the GoNoodle blog too.

Another great thing about GoNoodle is that you can buy lots of goodies on their GoNoodle store. My kids went crazy when I gave them tattoos last year. I may get some pencil for my new firsties.

Raindrop alphabet and some lucky leprechauns

This has been a busy week. We have been preparing for Fallas and St. Patrick. I used this easy printable with my secondgraders before our tests.
I have included English-Spanish and capital letters too. Enjoy! 

They love everything crafty! :)

 I also loved our Leprechaun directed drawing. Jennifer is an artist. And this was just perfect for my Art lessons in English.

We needed three 45 minutes lessons to complete them. But the results are worth it!
We draw them with pencils and colored with watercolors. On the last day they traced them with the black markers. Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Bye bye Fall

We have been working on Proper Nouns and Common nouns. If you have been following for a while you know that I would not miss the opportunity to create a craft. So we created these Fall trees and I asked the kids to classify the nouns (Proper Nouns on the left/Common Nouns on the right). We also added the definition in the little boxes.
Get the pattern here (English & Spanish). I added some blank leaves to write their own nouns.
On the other hand I finished my Fall crafts with the first grade classrooms. I love being the Art Teacher! We created cute Fall leaves in a very short session. 
First we glued a leave in the middle of a yellow paper. Then added some colorful strips of paper as borders. 
The kids added the eyes made of punched circles and drew the arms and legs. It worked great and they were really proud of them! :)

I did not invented this craft myself I just used a cheap version of this one leaf people from Mess for Less.
