Using their cognitive skills, students listen as the Spanish teacher calls out an action verb in Spanish and then the classroom teacher says the same verb in English. Students listen closely to both and then perform the physical task, using their psychomotor skills, to do things like dance and hop.

In this lesson, children will watch the webisode, play a fun “¡Puedo!: I can!” game and do other hands-on activities to learn new Spanish vocabulary. In the webisode “Making a Splash” Noah tries to take swimming lessons, but ends up water skiing instead! When Brisa invites Noah and Nell to join her at “la piscina” or pool on a hot day, Noah gets nervous because he can’t swim. He asks the pool manager where to get swimming lessons, but the manager only speaks Spanish and doesn’t understand what Noah asks. He sends Noah to the dock to go fishing, where he ends up joining a group of water skiers on open water! Good thing he learned the Spanish words for “I can swim” and “I can’t swim” to get him out of his mess.

Learn and practice Spanish, including vocabulary for kitchen items and shapes with the Oh Noah! “Cowboys and Librarians,” webisode, related games, lesson plans, and activities. In “Cowboys and Librarians,” Coco’s library book about cowboys is overdue, and Noah offers to return it for her. But when he gets in a taxi and says “library” in English while pointing to the book cover, the driver misunderstands and takes him to a ranch. After many hilarious attempts to ride a horse, Noah finally gallops off into the sunset, and gets to the library just before closing time. Students can learn, build upon, and apply the Spanish vocabulary through playing the interactive games. In the lesson plan, students will practice this Spanish vocabulary through a variety of hands-on games, and making craft dough to practice identifying shapes in Spanish.
