I have alphabet stickers. I’d secretly pick one and the first person to say its name in Spanish would get that sticker. They were having fun. The cool thing was that if someone was a little behind, I’d ask that person specifically for the name of a letter and no one complained. They were so respectful. We are definitely playing this again, at least until I run out of stickers, hehe.
We discussed Dynamics (Volume or Decibel Level Of Notes) and learned about Pianissimo, Piano, Mezzo-piano, Mezzo-forte, Forte and Fortissimo. We also discussed Crescendo and Diminuendo. The kids now know that they should use their Mezzo-piano voices inside and Forte/Fortissimo are okay for outside . Try telling them, “Piano, Piano, Mio Bambini” next time they get loud inside!
I made waffles for breakfast on Saturday, but we ran out of milk, so I used homemade coconut yogurt made out of homemade coconut milk. I also used applesauce instead of frozen blueberries. It was delicious! To see the recipe, click here.

(Personal note: I am sure we have all said or thought that at some point.)

Ballet Postions in French: Première (1st), Seconde (2nd), Troisième (3rd), Quatrième (4th), Cinquième (5th). They did awesome!
We all meet at the gym. While I teach the girls ballet, one of my neighbors takes K and her boy and they do sports, yoga, tumbling, and other boy-related sporty things.
My other neighbor takes A and her daughter and they do age-appropriate activities for their age.
Everyone loves it and we have a lot of fun. I am so glad we are doing this and to see kids grow (physically and intellectually) right before my eyes.
