Welcome to Spanish class!
Hola and Bienvenidos al invierno
I love how PRIDE lends itselfs so easily to the World Language classroom. Problem solving by asking for help, Respect by learning about cultural differences. Imaging your best self, letting your self out of your comfort zone and speaking or singing in class. Determination, having that self talk that you can learn a language and will try! Laslty showing empathy or kindness in Spanish class is crucial. We will make mistakes and sometimes say words wrong. Be kind to each other, help each other to show PRIDE.
We are currently tlking about tradiciones, traditions, and how each of ours re similiear or different to the Spanish Speaking World. We are singing a song Mi burrito sabanero in the lower grades and acting out the chorus part. We are reading a variety of books, The legend of the Pointsietta and las Posadas. In second grade, we are reading a Pinata in a Pine Tree
