The Months of the year + a song!

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jan 5, 2017 in basic, basics, information, misc, nouns, random, song, vocabulary, year 1

I’ve been wanting to redo a lot of my oldest videos. It just so happens that Lucas and I were able to make one.  But he was a little self-conscious about how he looks lately so he decided we should try to pull it off as cartoons! Hope you enjoy.

So in this video, we’ll talk about Los meses or “the months”.

I think it has a nice blend of information, basic Spanish, other Spanish phrases, and droll humor.

Stay tuned for vocabulary lists at the end!

01 Some common words for pets in Spanish

¡Hola! So I thought it would be fun to make a simple vocabulary video centered around different “mascotas” or “pets” as we might call them in English. Thus grew this idea into a video!  Hope you enjoy it.  You’ll also notice that we are using all of the forms of tener (to have) in context minus the form from Spain: tenéis.

And there is a word bank at the end if you wanted to see what all is in the video!

Espero que disfrutes del video. (I hope that you enjoy the video.)

Working on animation

Posted by Señor Jordan on Jun 3, 2016 in information, misc, news, year 1

If you haven’t seen the storytelling series: Cuentas Conmigo that I did this spring with anyone that wanted to participate, something that  I love when I do those stories is how they push me in the creative process.

For example, I needed to make a sequence where the ninja jumps and kicks another character. And I had to dabble in some actual animation.

I think it turned out well!

This inspired me for a video on adverbs that I haven’t made yet but someone requested a long time ago!

So I thought that I could throw in some animations with Juan Cena into the video.

Here’s what I came up with so far today while experimenting with character animation.

What do you think!?

Here’s Juan dancing the robot.

And here’s him singing a catchy little diddy.

Look out for the new video on forming adverbs sometime before September!

¿De qué color es? (Colors Song!)

Posted by Señor Jordan on Feb 15, 2016 in agreement, basic, basics, conjugation, information, misc, nouns, random, Ser vs estar, song, verbs, vocabulary, year 1

Here’s a fun little song I came up with to help with colors, animals and some high frequency words!

Let me know what you think!

Some asked for a coloring sheet to use with the video. Here are two different ones. Let me know if you had a better idea for how I could make them. I figured in one they could write the colors in and in the other they can just colors in the colors and the animals!

I also wrote a Super Simple Reader based on the vocabulary from this song if you would like to download it to read or print off for your classes! B&W versions also available if you’d like to have your little ones color it. 🙂

Hey everyone!  Sr. Jordan here.

I’m currently planning videos to film this summer!

Two other projects you might check out:

 

Here are the videos from last summer. While I didn’t make as many as I would have liked to, I am very proud of the quality of the videos as well as the popularity of my new companion, Lucas.

Here are some of the highlights:

 

I’ve also partnered with MundoLearning.org to make a video on greetings.
