So, I am standing outside my booth at the Florida Homeschooling Convention at Rosen Shingle Creek (FPEA is the correct acronym!!!) and some children who are part of a lovely family I met a couple of years ago at the H.E.R.I Convention come up to me to visit. One of the boys has a little play gun that lights up at one end and then he tells me the trigger also ‘works.’ What I did not know (but found out very quickly!) was that meant it ZAPPED me with an almost electric shock! WOW!!!
I got so motivated to share more than just this free preschool lesson (but I am a Christian woman and won’t share now what I wanted to share back then after being ZAPPED and laughed at!!!). Enjoy this bilingual lesson fun straight from my Boca Beth Educator’s Club and watch this free YouTube Lesson we posted from our Boca Beth Program simply by clicking here.
Making it fun & making it a challenge is what learning is all about, and teaching how to tell time is no different! Using our Boca Beth song makes telling time come to life with Spanish and English words, fun movements, cool visual aides, and if you need Boca Beth stickers to turn your $3.99 Target White Wall Clock into a contemporary teaching aide just call me (1.877.825.2622) or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org) . I will send you stickers of BOCA for FREE!!!

Suggested Classroom Activities to use with this song:
What Time Is It? (Off My More Boca Beth CD – click here to see the CD) This is an echo song. I ask the children if they remember what an echo is. I praise the correct answer person and ask them to be my echo in this fun song about telling time in Spanish and English. I use a white wall clock from Target that costs $3.99 as my BOCA clock after putting four BOCA stickers at the 12, 3, 6 and 9 positions!If the children are old enough to get the concept, they can act out the time of day while singing about it. We hold our arms out in the position of 8 o.clock, then straight above our heads for 12 o.clock, then pointing down towards the ground for 6:30. These movements truly incorporate learning for the auditory, visual and kinesthetic learners. They all love it!
Happy Educating! ¡Sea feliz educando!
