After the ”Hola” song Sra. Alicia and Susan greet each other. Susana shares a painting of Costa Rica she has painted as a way of introducing un paisaje (a landscape). Sra. Alicia shows students a landscape of Segovia, Spain, by Danielle Turpin. Susana helps Sra. Alicia describe the painting, its objects, and its colors. Sr. Enrique visits Sra. Alicia and paints a tropical landscape using vibrant colors. Together we the review the following words and motions: pintar (to paint), cortar (to cut), pegar (to paste), and trazar (to trace). Sra. Alicia traces different lines: lineas rectas (straight lines), lineas curvas (curved lines), and lineas zigzag (zigzag lines). She invites students to mimic her actions for each one. We also review the colors with their respective movements. Sra. Alicia then shows Sr. Enrique’s landscape painting and invites the students to describe what colors they see. She reviews primary and secondary colors. Sra. Alicia also describes what is in the painting: the sky, the mountains, the palm trees, and the ground. The lesson closes with the “Adios” song.
