Four trains-an old one, a red one, a big one and a little one named Miss Train (Señorita Tren)-decide to have a race. Miss Train, clearly an underdog, is the slowest train out of the starting gate. Soon after the race begins, the old train stops to eat cake with The Three Bears (Los tres osos) in the forest and becomes ill from all he has consumed. Then the red train purchases a book from The Three Goats (Los tres chivos) and wrecks while trying to read and race at the same time. Finally, the big train pulls over to rest, but accidentally falls asleep. Miss Train, slow but steady, wins the race.

 

Words: adiós, el tren ("goodbye," train)

With a handful of grapes, Armadillo becomes Super Armadillo! Faster than a speeding train, able to leap three bears in a single bound, Super Armadillo arrives on the scene in his somewhat clumsy manner to save other characters from peril. With a little help from Salsa, Super Armadillo returns a hamburger to the Girl (Niña) and a carton of milk to Little Rat (Ratoncito), and unties Mama Bear (Mamá Osa) from a railroad track. All is the dirty work of the Wolf (el Lobo), who is vanquished in the end.

 

Words: las uvas, la leche (grapes, milk)

The Three Bears (Los tres osos) go up against The Three Goats (Los tres chivos) for a third time in an elaborate production of "¿Qué es?" ("What Is It?"), but a case of the hiccups is giving Papa Bear (Papá Oso) fits. The Monster (el Monstruo) tries to help Papa Bear by scaring him with-of all things-a monster disguise, but it fails. In the ensuing competition, Papa Bear attempts to cure the hiccups by breathing into a bag, holding his breath, blowing up a balloon and, finally, drinking water. The bears come from behind and win, but the real winner is the hiccups, which still plague Papa Bear.

 

Words: el agua, el pelo (water, hair)

We meet Jose from Panama, who plays the congas. We learn that on the small conga Jose plays sonidos altos (high sounds) and on the large conga Jose plays sonidos bajos (low sounds.) Sra. Alicia goes to read a story, but first she has to ask for silence and in that way we find the difference between silencio (silence) and ruido (noise.) Sra.

Alicia has added an additional verse using two more colors, amarillo (yellow) and azul (blue). She invites students to sing the song slowly, then fast. With Sra. Alicia and Susanna we play “Manzanitas del Peru,” beginning slowly and then more quickly. Sra. Alicia reviews the parts of the body and teaches “Cabeza, brazos, piernas, y pies” (“Head, Arms, Legs, and Feet”), sing to the tune of “Head, shoulders, knees, and toes.” She leads singing the song at slow and fast tempos. Sra. Alicia introduces a new instrument, el triángulo (the triangle) and leads a counting activity, reviewing numbers one through eleven by counting instruments at a slow pace and at a fast pace. The lesson ends with the “Adios” song.

In the course of the webisode and related games viewers have the opportunity to learn the Spanish words for items found in Abuela's purse and an assortment of vegetables.
