My new school, Fremont International Academy, has 30 minutes of daily Spanish instruction which is co-taught by myself and our Spanish instructor. As we’ve been singing familiar songs in English to start out the year; we’ve been learning the same songs in Spanish. We learned the song Five Little Monkeys in Spanish called, Cinco Monitos.
We then did a cut and paste activity that guided students in matching quantities with the visual number. Students cut monkeys with numbers on them onto the correct numbers of dots. Students practiced saying the numbers both in English and in Spanish.
