This week we are learning about the letter "Ll" and we're learning about "Llevar" (To wear- clothing). The pronunciation of the letter "Ll" in Spanish can be confusing- it is not just an extra long "L" sound. It is pronounced as "Eh-yay." So those animals we see at the zoo sometimes? Not "llamas"- they are called "yamas." We are also learning about Puerta Vallarta, México and Isabel Allende. As we learn about clothing, we can also review colors, numbers, body parts, and family members as we answer the question, "¿Qué llevas?" (What are you wearing?). We can also review places in the community by talking about places where we can buy clothes. Every day your student can talk about the clothes he/ she is wearing, what colors they are, and the body parts they are being worn on. We can make sentences like, "Llevo pantalones negros en las piernas" (I'm wearing black pants on my legs.) Also ask about Puerta Vallarta and Isabel Allende. Why do people go to Puerta Vallarta? Where is Isabel Allende from?
On the website, students can watch the letter "Ll" video and play the "Ropa" game. It would also be great to go back and review the numbers, colors, prepositions, body parts, and places in the community vocabulary.
Coming up next week... M for "Mapa" (Map).
