In the next weeks and months the older students will continue to practice verbs as they write letters back to their pen pals, do a weather project, learn about the Solar System in Spanish, then start the school garden.
The younger students will continue to sing, play games, and listen to stories as they learn the words for body parts, animals, numbers, weather, and common Spanish expressions. They will help with the school garden as well as soon as it gets warm enough outside.
Maestra Lela had a Mexican exchange student living at her house for two weeks, so when he was here he came in and read a story and played a game with a couple of classes. Some of the students also practiced introducing themselves to him in Spanish. Here he is with the first grade.
Practicing using the vocabulary and expressions that they have already learned is an important part of being able to use Spanish. If you know a Spanish speaker who would be willing to stop by your child’s class, we would love to practice our Spanish with them!
