The most recent play they completed all in spanish was the Goldilocks and the Three bears. Here you can watch the videos.
|The kids made the kitchen scene, table, bowls outside of class time. The bear puppets were made with our Spanish teacher.|
|They also made the living room scene and a collapsable baby bear chair. The Spanish teacher taught them to make an origami chair|
|Next we made the bedroom scene and little pillows for the bed. We had so much fun being creative for our set design.|

There is a third video but it won't download properly but the above shows scene one and two of the play:)
|We made sheep|
|A crowd of people|
As you can see my kids are very dramatic when performing their parts which can take the Spanish teacher and me by surprise sometimes as we are never quite sure what they will ad lib into the play with additional noises and movements...but that is what makes it so much fun to watch.
Right now my kids are working on learning a play entirely in Spanish to perform for my parents when they arrive next week. The play is Little Red Riding Hood. Once again we made the puppets and the either made the sets or used ones we already made from the previous plays. while I don't have a video of the play here are the sets and puppets we are going to be using to recreate Little Red Riding Hood. I know my parents will be thrilled to see this performance in person:)

This has been a very fun way to learn Spanish and the kids are retaining the spanish vocabulary so much better this year than in the years when I tried to do it by myself.
