Our preschoolers are always so excited to start a new lesson. They love when I call attendance and know their Spanish names better than I do! They love to sing our greeting song and enjoy learning new ones. We have done lessons on numbers, colors and animals with lots of repetition. We have also done part of the Spanish alphabet. Bingo is their favorite Spanish activity! Kindergarten is doing so well learning Spanish! They chose their Spanish names and have been learning colors, animals and numbers. They had so much fun playing hide and go seek with the animals in Spanish! They enjoy singing and dancing too!
First and Second Grade love singing the “Buenos Dias” song every time they have Spanish. They did a great job making their own boxes for the feast of “The Three King’s Day (El dia de los reyes) and enjoyed listening to the way children in many Latin American countries celebrate this traditional holiday. They did great learning the dance “Viva Valentin” in Spanish. They also enjoy watching Spanish videos and are learning all about animals, colors and numbers.
Third grade is high energy! We are finishing a unit on Mexico and they did a wonderful job learning The Mexican Hat Dance! We are learning all about different foods and their favorite activity is to play “Restaurant” in Spanish!
In 4th Grade, we have reviewed animals, colors and all about genders and objects in Spanish. We have also done a unit on food and how to order in a Spanish restaurant. They also take turns reading and writing the date when we meet. We try to learn new vocabulary every time and get pop quizzes now and then. I am now teaching them the rules on how to read in Spanish and have them take turns reading and translating. They greatly enjoy incorporating games into every lesson.
