Where is the Potty?

At Let’s Learn Spanish yesterday evening, we learned how to ask that all-important question: ¿Dónde está el baño? / Where is the potty? We read the hilarious book Oh No, Gotta Go! by Susan Middleton Elya. The kids could definitely relate to the little protagonist who suddenly realizes in the middle of a car trip that she has to go potty, RIGHT NOW! EN ESTE MOMENTO!

Elya has written a bunch of rhyming books that incorporate Spanish words seamlessly into primarily English text. They’re great for introducing your preschooler or kindergartner to some Spanish words, from the basic stuff like Mamá and Papá  to practical expressions such as ¿Dónde está el baño? to fun extras like calabaza (pumpkin).

After reading the story, we took a closer look at the word BAÑO to learn about the letter Ñ. Then we made tilde hats, to turn ourselves into Ñ. The kids got a kick out of it, and some of them added to their tilde tiaras with colorful sashes and belts.
