2nd and 3rd graders from SAL Beginners have been lately studying the names of the parts of the body. To do so, they have been using their workbook, they have danced using/touching the part of the body that was mentioned and also they have created their own “avatar” to label the names of the parts of their bodies (see the picture above).
As a second part for this topic, students have been introduced to la descripción física (the description).
They have learned some specific vocabulary related to the physical features that human beings have such as:
– HAIR COLOR: rubio, castaño, moreno, pelirrojo.
– SHAPE: liso, ondulado, rizado, grueso, delgado.
– SIZES and/or LENGTH: grande, pequeño, mediano, largo, corto.
As well, students have been introduced to some new grammatical structures using the verbs SER (to be), TENER (to have) and LLEVAR (to wear). This has helped them very much when doing their own description and, even so at the beginning it was a little confusing, we are now more confident when using these verbs.
We encourage you to play “Guess who?” with them so they can practice the new things they have learned! We did so in our classroom and we had a lot of fun while reviewing and going deeper through the new contents.
