Gira, gira, gira,  gira, sin parar (2).

Song of the Week:

Los Sentidos/The Senses
Con mis cinco sentidos yo aprenderé
A ver todo a mí alrededor,
Con mis cinco sentidos puedo ver
El cielo con su color.
Escucharte a ti eso me hace feliz
Y sentir el sol sobre mí
Saborear la miel y poder oler
Las flores que hay en el jardín.
Con mis cinco sentidos…...
Poderte abrazar y también escuchar
Mi maestra en Sff
Oler, saborear, escuchar y sentir
El amor que sientes por mí!!
Con mis cinco sentidos….


Poem:
Con nuestros sentidos
Vamos a jugar
Ver, oler, tocar, oír
Y galletitas probar.
