Alicia uses the phrase digan en voz suave/fuerte, which means “say in a soft voice/loud voice.” This is followed by Sra. Alicia asking the students to practice saying hola and adios in a soft and loud voice. Students should join in in loud and soft voices. Sra. Alicia reviews the names of four different instruments: las maracas (the maracas,) la zampoña (the panpipe,) la quena (the flute,) and el tambor pequeño (the small drum.)

To review the expressions me gusta and te gusta, students are asked to respond to whether or not they like the portrait of Susana. Sra. Alicia then reviews primary and secondary colors using paint. She introduces the color morado (purple) by mixing red and blue paint. Later, Sra. Alicia puts movement to four different colors--red, green, orange, and purple, having a movement for each color. Finally Sra. Alicia shows la foto (photograph) and el autorretrato (self-portrait) of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo and explains the difference between retrato (portrait) and autorretrato (self-portrait).
