The other day my son had a brilliant idea! I don’t know why we ended up talking about a fan (he must have made it at school) and then my son asked me if I wanted him to make a fan for me. Of course I did!
Goal: learn how to explain how to make a fan and what we need to make it
Time: 5 minutes
Here’s what we did:
Frist, I asked what we needed to make it and then I asked my son to teach me how to make it. He would explain all the steps and he would show me what to do.
Vocabulary in focus:
New vocabulary: zszywacz, zszyć, składać/zginać (stapler, to staple, to fold)
Reviewed vocabulary: papier, kartka, ważne dokumenty,wstążka (sheet of paper, important documents, ribbon)
It’s fast and easy to make a fan, but it took us some time to figure out that we needed a stapler! My son didn’t know the word for it neither in English nor in Polish. He was very resourceful trying to explain to me what he had in mind. He managed; it was cute and funny 🙂 .
This is a very easy activity but it allows to introduce 2-3 new words. It’s good to redo it a few times with various members of the family.
