A few had already been exposed to the language and had taken various classes offered by La Piazza di Carolina so I was interested to see what they had retained from those experiences. We started the day off by decorating red and green folders with pictures and stamps of places and famous buildings all around Italy.
We had the campers choose uova or bastoncini types of maracas to use as they sang. There were various colors of the instruments to choose from so the children learned the different colors in Italian: rosso, verde, blu, azzurro, rosa, and viola. Inspired by the torrential rain we had today, we decided to focus the lesson on la pioggia and other words associated with this theme.
We did an activity where we placed il cielo a blue tablecloth on the floor and had the children place le nuvole, la pioggia, la neve, il sole, la luna, and un arcobaleno onto il cielo. We then had craft time. Each child painted a paper plate with yellow paint and placed due occhi neri and una bocca rossa on the plate to make il sole. Luckily the rain eventually let up so after la merenda the children played outside in the spruzzatore and piscina. The children were very enthusiastic today and I am eager to see the progress they will make over the course of the next two weeks!
Il piccolo ragnetto va sul rubinetto viene la pioggia e il ragnetto se ne va… Poi ritorna il sole guarda cosa fa: il piccolo ragnetto di nuovo arriver. Se conoscete altre canzone per bambini che si trattono degli insetti, per piacere raccontatecele pure! Wednesday we talked about la frutta! The children started off by doing a coloring page of pictures of fruits labeled with its name in Italian.
Then we passed around plastic fruit toys and had each child repeat the name of the fruit in Italian. Additionally we would ask the children to say the color of the piece of fruit as well. Doing this exercise, the children learned that in the Italian language an adjective must agree with the noun it describes. For example, una fragola is rossa, as opposed to rosso, because la fragola is femminile and not maschile. Learning this very important aspect of the language brought up a different question pertaining to pronunciation.
Rosa is pronounced as if the s was a soft z. The campers also learned the difference between arancia the fruit, orange and arancione the color, orange. We then read a few books about la frutta and had the children recognize and say the names of the different pieces of fruit in the stories.
Our merenda was, you guessed it, la frutta! We also passed out some grissini breadsticks which the children enjoy very much. They always ask for ancora! The craft dealt with la frutta, naturally. Each child colored in various pieces of fruit and then pasted them, along with little decorative flowers, onto a yellow-painted piattino.
The finished product was a cappellino di frutta. We tied these cute fruit hats to their heads using decorative ribbon and they all looked adorable! Monday marked the start of the second week of the Italian Camp. The campers followed the gestures we made pertaining to the sea animals and water vessels. We then played a memory card game using the words heard in the song. For example, if a child picked up a granchio , he or she would have to find the other one to make a pair, AND say the word in Italiano. For our merenda one of our assistant teachers, Andrea, made blue jello with Swedish Fish inside.
It was exciting for the kids to find pesci in their snack! They used onde, pesci, e conchiglie to make their pictures come to life, and then finished it off with sparkly glue. We read a book about the ice cream truck to the children and then learned the gusti such as cioccolato, vaniglia, fragola, e menta.
