Say “Hello!”

Say “Hello!” to classmates, parents, and friends  with this original hello song from Super Simple Songs.

Saúda aos teus compañeiros, aos teus pais e amigos con esta orixinal canción .

This super simple goodbye song is great for ending any class or play session. It’s very easy to sing along with and learn through gestures, and it ends with 45 seconds of instrumental music to play as children leave the classroom.

Esta canción é fenomenal para rematar calquera sesión pois é moi doada de prender gracias aos xestos que acompañan a letra.

Check out how these children enjoy it!

Mingle game is a fun way to practise the question “How old are you?” with little kids.

Children have to mingle together and when the chant finishes everybody asks a kid How old are you? . The child responds and everybody has to get into groups of that number and sit down.Take a look at this video.

The First Day of Winter

índiceLast Friday, we could see the first snowflakes falling down. It was an amazing and freezing day!!! So, I decided to take the opportunity to present  a new book called “The first day of winter” by Denise Fleming to my kindergarteners which helps us review numbers and colours and introduce some winter clothings.

O venres pasado, puidemos ver as primeiras folerpas de neve. Foi un día incrible e xeado!! Asi que , decidín aproveitar a oportunidade para presentar aos nenos de infantil un novo conto titulado “O primeiro día do inverno”, da autora Denise Fleming, o cal nos permita repasar os números a as cores e presentar algunhas palabras relacionadas coa roupa do inverno.
