R is for... "Restaurante"

March 27, 2017



This week we are learning about the letter "R" and we're learning about "El Restaurante" (Restaurant- Learning about food).    The letter "R" is pronounced "Eh-ray."  It is one of the most difficult letters to pronounce in the Spanish alphabet.  In English, we pronounce the letter "R" in the back of the throat and make the guttural pirate "ARRRR" sound.  In Spanish, the letter "R" is pronounced using the tip of the tongue in the very front of the mouth- more like an English "D."  It is hard for Americans to get used to this change.  We are also learning about Puerto Rico and Antonio Ramiro Romo.  We are learning all about food words for the next two weeks.  We're practicing reading menus in Spanish and next week we will practice ordering and taking orders.  Soon, the 4th graders will run their own restaurant and they will be showing off all the skills they are learning this week.  Try going to a Mexican or other Latin American restaurant and see if your student can find words on the menu that are familiar.  Try speaking Spanish to the servers!  We're also reviewing colors and numbers as we practice the food words.  Also ask about Puerto Rico and Antonio Ramiro Romo.  How is Puerto Rico connected to the United States?  What is Antonio Ramiro Romo better known as and what sport does he play?


On the website, students can watch the letter "R" video and play the "Restaurante" game.  It would also be great to go back and review the colors and numbers.


Coming up next week... More "Restaurante".
