G es de Ganso

We introduced the letter G with a cute bilingual board book, "Gossi/Gansi" by Olivier Dunrea.  It tells the tale of a gansita (little goose) with bright red boots.  We walked around like Gansi - walking atras or "adelante", in the lluvia (rain) and the nieve (snow).  Chiquita especially liked walking atras (backwards).

We followed up with a letter craft!
I love trying to figure out how to get the letters into the shape of things.  I drew a big letter G and a little letter g.  Chiquita colored our purple piece of construction paper while I cut them out.  I let her play with the letters for a minute while I cut out a beak and feet from yellow construction paper.  Then I assembled them into a goose shape and added a googly eye.  Chiquita and I glued them down - I put the glue as a guide where to put each piece and occasionally nudged a piece a little so that it ended up looking like a goose.  Then we added two red boots so it could be just like Gansi in the story!

See all the other Spanish/English alphabet crafts we've done!
