Hide and Seek
You can adjust this game to the level of the students. 

For pre-school students just hid your face with both hands and ask
"Donde esta (your name)?"  Then open you hands and say, "Bu!  (Your
name) esta aqui!"  The have the child cover their face and ask, "Donde
esta (child's name)?"  Then uncover the child's face and say, "Bu! 
(Child's name) esta aqui!"

Older children can all hide around the room.  Then the teacher can call
out, "Donde esta (child's name)?"  The child called can jump up out of
hiding and say, "Bu!"  If the child doesn't say, "Bu!" remind them to
say it by telling them, "Dice 'Bu'!"


Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes
This is sung to the familiar tune Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes but
there are a few changes.  Point carefully!

Cabeza, hombros, piernas, pies, piernas, pies.
Head, shoulders, knees, FEET, knees, FEET.

Cabeza, hombros, piernas, pies, piernas, pies.
Head, shoulders, knees, FEET, knees, FEET..

Orejas, ojos, boca y nariz.

Jan 2, 2002:   As a teacher of foreign languages (notably Spanish, French and German) I would like to point out that some of the items in the "face to face"  lesson are not exactly grammatically correct! When the plural is used,  it should be used globally, not partially! What I mean is "SUS ojos",  not "TUS ojos", etc.
   Also when teaching a foreign language, one should stay away from regionalisms, and try to teach the STANDARD, literary language (with 
footnotes pertaining to various regional forms..) I have to say that I commend any parent who wants to teach her children at home, however I'd suggest to check one's facts before putting them in print, or on the Web for that matter... M.M.

Feb 8, 2002: The proper spelling is narices, not narizes. SB

Jan. 7, 2003: Hi
Just wanted to point out that 'piernas' actually means 'legs' and not
'knees' as is stated. 'Knees' are 'Rodillas'. I am teaching my children
spanish and found this page helpful in that it has given me ideas on how to
make teaching Spanish to my children fun.
