Together we sing the “Hola” song, and then Sra. Alicia and Susana greet each other and sing the first verse and introduce the second verse of “Líneas,” which the students echo. Sra. Alicia introduces the Joan Miró painting “Lección de esquí” (“Ski Lesson”). She asks students to look for different types of lines in the painting and introduces the concept of shapes. As she points at a shape, she explains that a shape is the space enclosed by lines. We are further introduced to shapes by examining el cuadrado (the square) and el triángulo (the triangle). Finally, to review numbers, shapes, and sizes, Sra. Alicia sorts triangles and squares. The students are invited to count the large and small shapes. The lesson closes with the “Adios” song.
