How About Some Bilingual Fun This Week?

Sunday, September 9th, 2012

I never did show back up last week for a little more help with opposites in Spanish.  

Follow this link for some easy to read Spanish opposite help.

Enchanted Learning’s site has some great bilingual opposite fun ~ follow the link please.

Over at Kaboose.com you will find this game pretty fun for learning opposites in a second language.

Check out my web site’s page of free flashcards – many opposites can be found.

 

And for a little under $2 you can get this cute board book on Los opuestos / Opposites.

Opuestos (Opposites) (Spanish Edition)

Check out these kids – super enthusiastic about shouting out opposites in Spanish / español!

 

Kids Learn Opposites in Two Languages

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

More than 120 first graders learned their opposites in both English and Spanish using our Boca Beth bilingual song titled Opposites / Los opuestos.  Now you can learn even More Opposites / Más opuestos with our featured song and themed lesson fun for this week.

Find the suggested circle time activity to do with the more opposites song below:

This opposite song encourages lots of movement and bilingual learning. Sway dance is the dance of choice here with the chorus section – then the children act out the opposites as they are sung in English and Spanish. The children love acting out long & short, hot & cold, slow & fast and then open & closed. Lots of opportunities to sing, dance and play in this one.

Here are the words to our Boca Beth song where children learn about the shape of a star / estrella and more:

“More Shapes”

(sung to tune of “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”)
Diamond is diamante

Diamond is diamante

Diamond is diamante

I know my shapes.
Diamante es diamond

Diamante es diamond

Diamante es diamond

Yo se mis formas.
Star is estrella

Star is estrella

Star is estrella

I know my shapes.


Estrella es star

Estrella es star

Estrella es star

Yo se mis formas.
Heart is corazón

Heart is corazón

Heart is corazón

I know my shapes.
Corazón es heart

Corazón es heart

Corazón es heart

Yo se mis formas.

See you later this week for more fun!

A Weather Song in Spanish and English

Monday, August 27th, 2012

Years ago I wrote a song about the weather to the tune of The Itsy Bitsy Spider, and since we are in the midst of Tropical Depression Isaac.  Here in Tampa we are experiencing rain and wind from the storm so I felt sharing the bilingual song for children for free would be appropriate.

Download the Boca Beth Weather Song/Cancion de tiempo  (click the link)

 

Here is the link to the suggested music and movement activity that goes hand-in-hand with this song from my Boca Beth Program.  Look for song #13.

Celebrate Back to School with FREE CD!

Tuesday, August 21st, 2012

It’s bittersweet when our daughter goes back to school.  

Unlike many parents I really enjoy the entire 8 or 9 weeks off from the daily routine of school.  Today she started back to Middle School … below is a photo of her with our Boca Beth backpack while in elementary school.  OH MY!

She and her best friend at the time even performed in our Boca Beth YouTube videos when the mood would strike them.  Singing in Spanish and English thanks to the bilingual songs I wrote, these two English speaking gals could help introduce telling time in Spanish via music fun.  Check this out:

 

Want to win the CD from my Boca Beth program that this song (and 14 others are on)?  Simply comment below why you want to introduce Spanish and English to the special child in your life.  First three responses that Megan (our daughter) loves and thinks are great reasons will win this full length Boca Beth CD.

The Summer Olympics End – Back to School Begins!

Sunday, August 12th, 2012

I hate to admit it, but the Summer Olympics Closing Ceremonies tonight certainly signal the start of Back to School for those of us in the Southeastern part of the United States.

Having been born in the state of Florida I have always been used to school starting before Labor Day.  (I don’t like it mind you … I am just used to it.)

So my friends let’s prepare for a fantastic year ahead of teaching, learning with, and supporting our young generations.  They need us, and we need them.  Raise them bilingually…why?  Read here.
