Looking for a creative way to teach or reinforce the days of the week while reviewing emotions in Spanish? I ‘m always looking for ways to reinforce what has been learned already because repetition helps students remember what has been taught.  Implementing old material with new is a good idea in order to keep students always engaged and helps them to not forget.
So for teaching the days of the week in Spanish while reinforcing emotions, I decided to use a well known tune by kids. The tune for this little activity is: “She’ll be coming round the mountain”

So here is what I do:

Children sit in a circle. I start singing the tune of the song she’ll be coming round the mountain using the days of the week in Spanish. I use a drum to keep a rhythmic beat. I will write the words here and the part where students get a chance to express the emotions in Spanish.  (At the end is a sample of the song so you can hear it and have a better idea)

So here go the words:

Teacher sings: Hoy es domingo, domingo, domingo, ¿cómo estás?

Student responds: ¡Estoy feliz! (Or they can choose any emotion they want. I’m just choosing one as an example)

Teacher sings: Hoy es domingo, domingo, domingo, ¿cómo estás?

Student responds: ¡Estoy feliz!

Teacher sings: Hoy es domingo, domingo, domingos, hoy es domingo, domingo, domingo, hoy es domingo, domingo, domingo, ¿cómo estás? 

Student responds: ¡Estoy feliz!

*****************************************                                                                                                                             
Teacher sings: Hoy es lunes, lunes, lunes, ¿cómo estás?

Student responds: Estoy triste

Teacher sings: Hoy es lunes, lunes, lunes, ¿cómo estás?

Student responds: Estoy triste

Teacher sings: Hoy es lunes, lunes, lunes,  hoy es lunes, lunes, lunes,   hoy es lunes, lunes, lunes, ¿cómo estás?

Student responds: Estoy triste

And so on using all the days of the week and they can use different emotions. For each day of the week I ask a different student. Go around the circle until all the students have gotten a chance to participate. Here is a short sample of what I just explained)

My students really enjoy this little activity. For some reason they love saying they are “enojado” or “enojada”

The different emotions students can use and can be found in my free product called caritas are:
feliz, triste, enojado(a) aburrido (a) asustado (a) sorprendido (a) cansado (a)

You can have the little emotion faces (caritas) on the floor in the middle of the circle and have each student pick up the one that represent the emotion they choose. Encourage students to show facial expression with each emotion! They so love it!

I hope you find this idea helpful. Your comments are welcome!
