Latest News from Spanish Class



In Spanish class, we have been busy over the last few weeks. We've addressed cultural awareness through learning about the Mexican holiday of el Dìa de los Muertos. We read some books on the subject and made the traditional sugar skulls associated with the holiday. The kids really enjoyed making and decorating our sugar skulls and visiting the Middle School to see the
Middle School students' sugar skulls as well. We also reviewed colors, numbers and shapes by playing BINGO, which the kids really enjoyed. We are just beginning a unit on parts of the body, weather, clothing, and seasons. They will have some new songs to share with you over the next few weeks to practice their vocabulary while we continue to listen to stories and participate in lots of fun activities that engage them in learning the language.
