While the Dog sleeps, the characters concoct their own version of The Three Billy Goats Gruff. On the Goats' way to get ice cream, the Monster  stops Little Goat and charges him seven tomatoes to cross the bridge. Little Goat comes back with green tomatoes, but the Monster insists on red. When he returns with the correct toll, Little Goat is allowed to pass. Medium Goat approaches and the Monster charges him seven pieces of cheese. Medium Goat brings the cheese and crosses the bridge. Finally, Big Goat arrives and both characters cross the bridge for ice cream. 

Words: seis, siete (six, seven)

Grandmother (la Abuela) puts the Wolf (el Lobo) on a diet and exercise program after discovering how much weight he has gained. First he proves to be a poor runner, complaining of fatigue and aching feet. Then the Wolf finds himself frustrated when Grandmother serves Little Red Riding Hood (Caperucita Roja, played by Niña) a larger portion of food. Finally, Grandmother shows the Wolf how to lift weights and even gets him hopping through her aerobics class. 

Words: la cabeza, la nariz (head, nose)

A movement activity reviews commands and introduces un paso adelante (one step ahead), un paso atrás (one step back), dos pasos adelante (two steps ahead), dos pasos atrás (two steps back), tres pasos adelante (three steps ahead), and tres pasos atrás (three steps back). Cultural artifacts are introduced via an activity of counting instrumentos musicales (musical instruments), a traditional flute la quena and a pan-flute la zampoña, from Bolivia, and a drum, el tambor, found in Mexico and Central and South America.
