These are the lessons for a three week unit on animals and the parts of the body for Second Grade.This week we will use TPR and the song “Cabeza, Hombros, Rodillas, Pies” to learn vocabulary for parts of the body. Next week we will move on to learning animal vocabulary. Students will also learn to read four body words in Spanish. This unit will culminate in the reading of the book De la Cabeza a los Pies by Eric Carle which will utilize all animal and body vocabulary.
Body Unit Vocabulary
These are the lesson plans for the 2nd Grade Unit on Body, Emotions and Basic Greetings.
First, students will learn to use greetings and emotions vocabulary as well as gestures typical in Latin American countries in a simple conversation. Students will then create a TPRS (Teaching Proficiency Through Reading and Storytelling) story using the learned emotions vocabulary. Students will demonstrate understanding of learned vocabulary by re-telling and re-enacting this story.
The Unit will culminate with a grade-wide Storytime in which the classes will narrate and act out the Cuentos Locos that their class has created.
