  • 3 ALAMEDA J shared her photo of the sea walls along the Alameda Apodaca with us. A beautiful photo and an interesting conversation. We talked about what to call it, is it a park, a square, a green space/area? I thought maybe it was a kind of park, but Fernando pointed out it doesn't have a fence.... But we all agreed that it's a lovely place, shady and peaceful in summer, sheltered from the wind, romantic for some but bright and fun too. We talked about the tiles, and the streetlights and that it was definitely worth it - taking the photo and bringing it into class. I'm looking forward to more photos. 4 GOING TO/WILL J explained that she took the photo because her mother thought she might paint the scene. We don't know if she's going to or not. But it seems that she likes painting landscapes.

After that we discussed some questions about this topic. We grouped words depending on genre, feelings, good or bad, quiet or loud...We also listened to some of Dans play list songs.

  • and following up on the follow up tasks We used to have chocolate and churros for breakfast a lot when we lived in Madrid. Its great! My kids love it too. And I think its a great idea to include the kids in deciding what to eat/cook for lunch. But we never have a siesta after lunch! My kids are too full of energy to sleep!

Im really love a siesta, a half hour no more, but my kids never have a siesta since their was one or their was very child. You have reason when I wrote used to Id want to say ( to means) I usually go on facebook and surf the internet.
