First we dig a small area for the river. Then we gather up a bunch of sticks to put over the "river" to make a little bridge.
So some of my narration through this playing might sound a little like this:
Cavemos en la arena. "Let's dig in the sand."
Hagamos un rio. "Let's make a river."
¿Quieres hacer un puente? "Do you want to make a bridge"
Busquemos unos palos. "Let's look for some sticks."
Oh, mira. Hay un palo detrás de ti. "Oh, look. There's a stick behind you."
Este palo es largo. "This stick is long."
Este palo es corto. "This stick is short."
¿Este palo es largo o corto? "Is this stick long or short?"
Teaching Spanish to kids is so fun when they don't realize they're actually learning!
