Quiero Fruta

Lesson 26 of Sonrisas Spanish Elementary Curriculum is titled "Yo Quiero"
The suggested book to go along with it is ¡Quiero mi plátano! I Want My Banana! by Mary Risk.  I have not read this book but I have read several in the "I Can Read Spanish" series and they are always a hit with my kiddos.

I did not have this book so I decided to use a video from Salsa Spanish, The Fruit Fiasco
If you are not familiar with Salsa Spanish you can check out my post here.

The Fruit Fiasco is a great little video about a mama bear that needs some apples to make an apple empanada.  Perfect for teaching the fruits in Spanish.

First I reviewed the vocabulary below:
Necesito, quiero, azucar, huevos, uvas, manzanas, bananas, naranjas, limones.

I used a puppet and picture cards of the vocabulary.  I passed out cards to each
child and then used the puppet to say necesito...3 manzanas...

Students then got a chance to "feed" the puppet. They loved this!

Next we watched the The Fruit Fiasco
As we watched I paused the video here and there to check for understanding.

After the video students completed the sheet below.  This was advanced for my 3.5 year old student but I just guided her through it.  I gave her extra help and had her count and name the fruits and name the colors with me.

Print out p. 24 for the sheet above located here.
