Sing for the Climate
 
We need wake up                              Temos que espertar
We need to wise up                           Temos que espabilar
We need to open our eyes                 Temos que abrir os ollos
And do it now now now                      E debemos facelo agora  agora  agora
We need to build a better future         Temos que construir un futuro mellor
And we need to start right now           E temos que comezar agora mesmo
We're on a planet                                Estamos nun planeta
that has a problem                              que tén un problema
We've got to solve it, get involved       Temos que solucionalo, implicarnos
And do it now now now                       E debemos facelo agora  agora  agora
We need to build a better future          Temos que construir un futuro mellor
And we need to start right now            E temos que  comezar agora mesmo

Our language auxiliar, Anais, told us how she celebrates Halloween in the USA. She showed us scary Halloween corn mazes , haunted houses and children going trick or treat.

 

 

We learned this funny Trick or treat rhyme with Anais. Can you sing it?

 

                   "TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET

                     GIVE ME SOMETHING GOOD TO EAT.

                     IF YOU DON´T, I DON´T CARE
