In-person Bamboleo Classes are Back
this Fall 2023 at Heartwell Park
We will use our imagination, I will go to Chile where apple orchards abound. Did you know "granja" (farm) in Chile is "fundo"? And "calabaza" (pumpkin) is "zapallo"?
We will be visiting "la granja de la abuela" (grandma's farm) Oh, wait! Abuela doesn't call it "granja" but "fundo". Wow!! We will be learning a lot with her as we help to harvest apples and vegetables.
Fall - session TWO
Our imaginary adventures at Bamboleo will take us and the little ones in our classes to Quito, first, for a trip to "El Supermercado Bamboleo" (did you know vainitas, or green beans, are also called ejotes, vainicas, chauchas, habichuelas, and judías???); then we head to Guayaquil, right into Abuelita Violeta's living room to prepare for El Año Nuevo. New Year’s, of course! This is a very big deal in Ecuador!
We'll do The Countdown! Yes, we will practice counting down from 10 to 1 before we scream with delight: ¡Feliz Año Nuevo! Kids will make crowns, necklaces, and end with getting their own fun toy that in Spanish means: “Frightens Mother-in-laws” or Espantasuegras (shhh…they don’t have to know everything in Spanish: ) And this wraps up another AWESOME year in Bamboleo, or as they would say in Ecuador: ¡QUÉ CHÉVERE!
