  • Bob and Luis sing the Classification Song, Bob using a chair, table, bed and shirt. The kids guess that the shirt does not belong in the set. Now Luis plays the game, in Spanish, using a sock, a hat, a dress, a shoe, and a hot dog. The kids guess that the hot dog does not belong.
  • Kids are jumping rope on Sesame Street, and Antonio knows a good rope-jumping song in Spanish. Luis provides the English translation, as Antonio and the kids demonstrate the song.
  • Little Boy Gordon is busy reading a storybook, while Little Boy Bob blows bubbles. Gordon wants the bubbles, and takes them from Bob. Now empty-handed, Bob begins to cry. Demonstrating cooperation, Gordon gives his storybook to Bob. Each has a toy, and both are happy.
