During the winter months, I introduce vocabulary related to clothing. It is a meaningful and practical way to teach not only clothing vocabulary but to also to talk about the weather and the seasons.
Froggy Se Viste
To introduce new vocabulary, I always use a children’s book or song to connect grammar and context to the theme. One of my favorite books is Froggy Se Viste by Jonathan London.
