The Kindergarteners had an amazing performance singing a song about la primavera (the spring) for the cultural parade in April. The song they sang was called, “Somos Como las Flores” (Each of us is a Flower). They seemed very excited to present this song to their families. They also learned new vocabulary related to what they see in the spring, such as: Veo flores, lluvia, arcoiris, animales bebés, etc. (I see flowers, rain, rainbows, baby animals, etc.). They are also learning new vocabulary related to food. They created a poster related to the food to take home for practice.
The First Grade students continued practicing the foods, including learning to say the phrases: Me gusta comer (I like to eat)…, and No me gusta comer (I don’t like to eat)... They also learned various vocabulary words relating to things that they see in the spring (la primavera). They are writing down vocabulary words, creating art, and singing songs, all related to spring. I am very impressed by how excited they are about learning new themes every month in the Spanish Class and how well they are able to memorize, identify, and apply the vocabulary they have learned.
The Second Graders are continuing to make flashcards to take home for practicing their Spanish vocabulary. The students reviewed the weather and the months of the year, followed by spring-related vocabulary and sentences and learned the fruits and making flashcards to practice in class with their classmates. They also were very engaged practicing a creative song relating the food they had a really good time memorizing it “Bistec”
The Third Graders had a great time learning the foods and working in groups asking each other what they like to eat and what they dislike using the phrases: ¿Que te gusta comer? and ¿Que no te gusta comer? They also enjoyed learning the song “Bistec” The Third Graders continue to enjoy making flashcards to take home and practice for reviews in class.
Last month, the Fourth Graders completed Unit 3 of their program, where they talked about going to places on different days of the week and different times. They learned vocabulary relating to common places in the community, such as el cine (movies), la ecuela (school), la tienda (store), el restaurant (restaurant), etc. They also learned how to use the singular present tense forms of ir (to go).
