Here’s a game I know dad will LOVE to play. Start with practicing today’s phrase, “You need to take a nap” together. Now, have dad pretend to get cranky (really, does he need to pretend to be irritated with too much noise in the house? haha) and have the kids tell him that he needs to take a nap in your foreign language you are working on. I bet dad will be more than happy to pretend to fall asleep on the couch. The real game is trying to get the kids to play along for as long as possible! haha!

Phrase of the Day, we are doing phrases that our dad says. Your

dad says, all the time. And today’s phrase is, “You need to take

a nap.”

I will never take a nap. You’ll never make me. You were just napping, but

when we tell you it, there’s so much anger inside.

So let’s find out how to say that phrase.

So we’re going to head over to “N” and then we’re going to

go into “Nap.” Now, Darian,

I’ll sleep.
