Together we sing the “Hola” song, and Sra. Alicia and Susana greet each other. Then Sra. Alicia invites students to count and paintbrushes to introduce the number quince (fifteen). By moving up and down steps with her hands, Sra. Alicia counts up to fifteen and down to one. Susana and Sra. Alicia meet again, and Sra. Alicia takes Susana’s foto (photograph). Susana, however, wants Sr. Enrique to paint Susana’s retrato (portrait). Together we read Azul y verde (Blue and Green) by Alma Flor Ada and Isabel Campoy, introducing un retrato. Sra. Alicia shows the painting Niño del gato (The Cat’s Boy) by Fernando Castillo, using the portrait to review facial features and parts of the body. The lesson closes with the “Adios” song.
