En clase 31/03/14 – Adjectivos

Everyone did really well to remember some of the adjectives (adjectivos) that we learnt last lesson especially as it was two weeks ago.

Spanish grammar is a bit tricky with adjectives as you have to remember 3 things

1) they come after the noun

2) they agree with gender (their ending changes depending whether the word is masculine or feminine)

3) they  agree with number (the ending changes depending whether the word is singular or plural).

Lots to remember. Here are some examples

brazo largo – long arm

pierna larga – long leg

brazos largos – long arms

piernas largas – long legs

We did some longer sentences to describe animals like:

Una jirafa tiene un cuello largo – A giraffe has a long neck.

Una jirafa tine cuatro piernas largas – A giraffe has four long legs.

Un elefante tiene un nariz largo – An elephant has a long nose.

Finally the children had to listen to my description of a creature and guess what it was.

En Clase 17/03/14 – Palabras opuestas

The children did a great job of finding the pictures showing opposites and matching them up to the Spanish words on the table.

Some of the words they found were

grande – pequeño

alto – bajo

largo – corto

nuevo – viejo

izquierda – derecha

fácil – dificil

caliente – frío

rápido – lento

We then used some of these adjectives to describe and draw some monsters on mini-white boards.

¡BUEN TRABAJO!

En Clase 10/03/14 – Partes del cuerpo, números, colores y adjetivos

Bienvenido otra vez a los niños después de las vacaciones.

Today we revised some parts of the body and learnt some new ones, we practised numbers, colours and adjectives and reviewed were colours and adjectives were placed in relation to nouns.

The parts of the body we learnt were: la cabeza (head), los dedos (fingers or toes), el pie (foot), la pierna (leg), los dientes (teeth), las orejas (ears), los ojos (eyes), las manos (hands), la barriga (tummy), los brazos (arms).

Then we drew some pet monsters and wrote some sentences about them using the verb tiene (it has). 

How would you describe this monster in Spanish?
