Middle school: A Fun Way to Review
Students partake in different forms of review at the end of their unit. Here they are using a ball, and taking advantage of the nice weather, to quiz each other.
Grade 3: Describing Characters
Students in third grade wrote a paragraph describing their own monster creations. They used their vocabulary related to the parts of the body.
Grade 2: Winter Reflections
Grade 2 students learned new vocabulary related to winter. They enjoyed listening to stories, played games to review new Spanish words and wrote a paragraph independently which they read to their class.
Third Grade: Cinco Calabazas
Students learned Cinco Calabazas, a song about five pumpkins that are feeling emotional. We used the song to talk in Span-glish about feelings and emotions. Afterwards, each student drew a calabaza experiencing an emotion and wrote sentences (in Spanish) to go with it. The other students had to guess (in Spanish) which emotion the creator was describing.
Kindergarten to 4th Grade: Spanish Spectacular
Each year, the students practice their songs and skits for several months so they can present a show entirely in Spanish for their families. Besides practicing Spanish, they are also learning to be on a stage, memorize lines, be spontaneous, and use their voices.
First Grade: Speaking in Sentences
In this lesson, Grade 1 students learn to speak in full sentences by using pictures and symbols that represent nouns, prepositions and other parts of speech.
First Grade: La Noche de Brujas
As we celebrate Halloween, first grade students learn Day of the Dead vocabulary in Spanish.
Grade 5: Writing Skits
Students wrote a short skit with group members. They were to use their latest vocabulary, which included modes of transportation and locations around town.
Grade 4: Comecocos
In this picture, 4th grade students are using their comecocos to practice colors, numbers, new vocabulary and greetings in Spanish.
Grades 5 to 8: What's Inside a House?
Fifth through eighth grade students have been learning about parts of a house and items found inside of a home. We have been learning to describe and ask questions. In the video, students are trying to track a dog's movements through a home.
Middle school: Designing Games
Students designed games of their choosing based on the 2nd grade curriculum. After designing and testing their games, they met with second grade to play their games. All students worked well together and had a great time!
Fourth Grade: Países
Each student began his proyecto (project) by researching Spanish-speaking paises (countries) in South America. He looked through non-fiction books from our biblioteca (library) then continued his research using la computadora (computer). We gathered important information related to key terms such as government, climate and activities (gobierno, clima, y actividades). Students then created brochures to advertise their countries.
Second Grade: Moving Means Learning
In the second grade, the students use magnetic vocabulary cards to create sentences. Later, they practice saying their sentences aloud, sometimes by simply reading them and other times by putting on skits.
Kindergarten: How Do You Feel?
Students in Kindergarten are learning the body parts and how to express their feelings in Spanish. They enjoyed drawing different faces. This student's favorite one was "graciosa" (silly)!
