Elementary and Middle School Spanish News - February and March

In each class, students are working with activities that reflect each other’s personalities. We have more in common than we know!  It takes pasos, steps, but in the end, it works. The first step is to be kind to each other.

Lower Elementary

Students write down words that they remember.

They use those words in pictures to make sentences.

They also use the words as a model and write sentences.

Students use words that describe personalities of animals and write complete stories.

After I read a sentence in Spanish, students draw what they understand.

Students read, summarize, and answer questions about what they have read.

Upper Elementary

Learning another language can be fun! We play games like Loteria, and take trips to the Global Education Center to practice African Peruvian dances. The instruction was all in Spanish!

Students are artistas! They created a beautiful display using sticks and yarn.

Students made Gazpacho and learned how to measure ingredients in Spanish. After they finished cooking, they wrote stories in Spanish about the process and ate their soup. Buenisimo!

Students work with direct object pronouns and adjectives to describe El Chico - the guy, and La Chica - the girl, on the white board.

They take turns describing a person in class and other students guess, ¿Quién es él/ella?  Who is he or she?

We write and illustrate stories to describe people and things around us.

Middle School

Gratitud! Middle School students went to Cole Elementary school to deliver Spanish books that they collected. Muchisimas Gracias to all for your donations!

Middle Schoolers visited Cole Elementary school and read some of their donated books to the students.

Students researched Islamic countries and worked in pairs to give presentations in Spanish.

Upper Elementary students who will be entering Middle School next year have been joining the Middle School students for Spanish.  They are learning so much from each other!
