Sexta sesion: Mas expresion corporal!



Hoy, los niños comenzaron la sesión del Círculo con un repaso del Jarabe Tapatio, la danza del folklor mexicano. Después, los niños jugaron un juego que aprendieron hace unas sesiones llamado El Lobo. A través de este juego los niños recordaron las palabras usadas para describir sus rutinas de la mañana. Después de jugar, los niños recordaron el alfabeto, especialmente las vocales.

Despues de eso, los voluntarios comenzaron una actividad sobre imaginacion.Entrando en un círculo, cada uno tuvo la posibilidad de mencionar un tipo de comida (lechuga, tomates o salchichas) que quisieran poner en sus bocadillos imaginarios. Entonces, los niños y los voluntarios participaron en la preparacion de sus bocadillos. Cuando terminaron con eso, la imaginación les llevó a bordo de un barco donde los niños y los voluntarios tuvieron que enfrentar los peligros de los tiburones y las tormentas. Por suerte, se las arreglaron para salir ilesos. Luego, los niños y voluntarios comenzaron a repasar las palabras en español para las partes del cuerpo.

Despues de la canción, los niños repasaron los distintos niveles espaciales (bajos, medianos y altos) y los distintos tipos de líneas (curvas y angulares). Después de torcer sus cuerpos en diferentes formas en diferentes niveles, los niños tuvieron la oportunidad de recordar los nombres de sus compañeros y los voluntarios hicieron una forma y gritaron sus nombres.

El domingo 20 no habra sesion por el festivo. Nos encontraremos nuevamente el 27 de abril para la sesion final.

Hasta pronto!


--------------------------

Today the kids began the Círculo session with a review of the Jarabe Tapatio, the Mexican folklore dance they have been practicing for a while. Next they had the chance to play a game they learned a few sessions ago, The Wolf. Through this game the kids were able to review the Spanish words used to describe their morning routines and run around, chasing each other. After this game the children also got a chance to review the letters of the Spanish alphabet, especially the vowels which the younger kids have been practicing.
    After these review activities, the volunteers switched to an activity focused on using the kids’ imaginations. Getting in a circle, everyone got the chance to name a type of food (i.e. lettuce, tomatoes, or sausages) that they wanted to put into their imaginary sandwiches. Then, the children and volunteers took part in eating their sandwiches. But when they were finished with that, their imagination took them aboard a boat where the kids and volunteers had to face the dangers of sharks and storms. Luckily, they managed to all make it out in one piece. Glad to have their bodies intact, the kids and volunteers then began to review the Spanish words for body parts. Many of the kids still recalled the song they learned last session and they were able to sing along this time.
    Following the song, the kids reviewed the different spatial levels (short, medium, and tall) and the different types of lines (curved and angular). After twisting their bodies into different shapes at different levels, the kids got the chance to review the names of their peers and the volunteers as they made a shape and shouted out their name. Next, the kids were taught the new concept of negative space. All of the kids and volunteers made a masterpiece attaching themselves together, using each other’s negative space. After pictures were taken to capture the moment, everyone enjoyed a snack break featuring hot dogs and cake. Following their break, the kids got the chance to spin around, holding a rainbow sheet, as one kid after another took turns running and hiding beneath it.  And during the last minutes of the session, the kids got the chance to participate in a Goodbye Dance, as they displayed the moves of their choice from one end of the room to the other.
