L es de León

We got to practice lots of vocabulary with this L es de Leon (Lion) craft!  After coloring (with help from me) and cutting out (all me) our template I laid out the lion and one by one we named the body parts and disassembled the lion:
  • orejas = ears
  • nariz = nose
  • cara = face
  • pelo = hair
  • piernas = legs
  • cola = tail
  • cuerpo = body
I would point to the piece and ask "Que es?" (what is it?).  Chiquita could name most of them without prompting but she did guess that the nose was a triangle first!  With the piernas and cuerpo I also pointed out that they were la letra L, the letter that leon and lion both start with!  

Then I put down glue guides and she put the lion back together!  Roar!


  1. That is a really good craft and I love how you named all the different parts.

  2. Oh, I love it!! Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!
