Sotto il mare

DSC05705

Friday at Italian Camp our tema della giornata (theme of the day) was sotto il mare (under the sea). We began the day reading a story about the different types of animali del mare (sea animals) along with coordinating pictures. We then followed with a song. Singing along with the music helped the kids understand the new Italian words and internalize their meanings. Later in the day when we worked on our under water scene the kids were then able to easily ask for the appropriate sea animal stamps they wanted to use. Instead of asking for octopus, they were requesting polipo!
