Hola/ Adios

This week, in Spanish, we are leaning to greet each other. We are playing, Teatro De Español (Spanish Theater). In this game, the teacher comes up with an absurd scenario for two actors. One has good fortune (Bien), the other bad (Mal). Then, based on the presented scenario, the children have this conversation:

S1: Hola. 
S2: Hola.
S1: Como estas?
S2: Bien. Como estas?
S1: Mal.
S2: Adios.
S1: Adios.   

This is our students first full conversation in Spanish.

Try playing along . They will enjoy it. The secret ot to make the good fortune and bad fortune REALLY silly.
i.e.: You have just found out that new Spanish Teacher is Superman and he's going to teach you to fly! Okay, take a moment to find your motivation. Now... SCENE!
