Kids Spanish 101 + Fruit = Batidos(Smoothies)
Awesome Senorita Shawna came over again today for Kids Spanish 101.
She arrived with a HUGE bag of FRUIT….
and Spanish flash cards….
and a blender….
and her 2 kids….
She started by laying out the fruit on the floor and asking the kids to cut the Spanish words for the fruit and “label” them.
THEN the kids took turns acting like they ran a restaurant ( a CRAZY restaurant) but a restaurant none the less…LOL.
They ordered their BATIDOS(smoothies) and waited NOT SO PATIENTLY for the COOK(Me and Shawna) to make their TREATS.
The kids LOVED it.
They are like sponges….they SOAK IT UP.
They LOVE learning Spanish and as I have said before –I hope that THESE LESSONS help them to BE BETTER.
More WORLDY people.
More WELL ROUNDED.
More AWARE that AMERICA and ENGLISH are NOT the end all be all.
There are LOTS of places in the world where SPANISH is a VALUABLE COMMODOTY.
I appreciate these lessons and the FRIENDS that can teach them.
What a blessing these classes are.
What a TREASURE these children will hold if they actually end up BI-LINGUAL.
THEN I got to THINKING…
Is is too much to ask that AFTER they are BI-LINGUAL they NEVER LEAVE or TRAVEL to use their skills????
But- A mother can hope right??????
