Students discussed what they were wearing and their favorite clothing items. We sang lots of songs about our clothing and the weather. We will read Recitos de Oro y Los Tres Osos to kick off our family unit and the READ-A-THON.

    Muy buenos dias. Feliz 100 dias de escuela. We have had a great three weeks into the new year.  As you know, students have been reviewing and practicing positive school-wide behaviors and agreements(rules). We also introduced Oakie's New Years Resolutions and our how to be an Owl videos during morning crew meetings. Students see their classmates modeling best behaviors throughout the school from kindergarteners showing us how to walk in the hallways to 2nd graders modeling good choices for learning in the classroom. Thank you for continuing to encourage your child to show their personal best! We never want to send home reflection sheets but if agreements are broken consistently, Spanish will also send home reflection sheets.  In the classroom, students reviewed previous units and are moving forward with new vocabulary and activities. The kids continue to be excited to show what they know!

    Kinder:
    We reviewed our unit on the five senses and finished strong with creating 5 Senses posters. Students cut pictures from magazines and matched them to the appropriate sense. Each student added to each of the 5 posters making it a collaborative effort. Our next unit will focus on naming clothing and understanding which piece of clothing is worn during summer and winter.

This week we introduced vocabulary for community helpers. We will focus on the following ayudantes de la comunidad: doctor, nurse, teacher, police, firefighter and mail carrier. In tandem with the kindergarten expedition, Spanish will complete writing and drawing that will focus on these community helpers and be on display during the k celebration of learning.

    Kindergarten students finished working on our artwork for Pedro Linales-Lopez. Please stop by the Spanish Display Panels to check out the finished products. We are now working on body parts and finishing with labeling the parts of our face and body. Students will be practicing using games and songs like "Un Pequeño Dedo". Youtube and Youtube kids have lots of great options to practice songs in Spanish at home with your child.  

    Practice Tip: Create Spanish vocabulary flashcards for your child. Once they have mastered a group of words help them to build simple sentences using the kindergarten Spanish vocabulary list.

    Kindergarteners have really been using our Spanish vocabulary in class! We hope that they are also showing their ability to use some words and basic phrases at home. We have lots of wonderful kid models that speak Spanish and always help to cheer on our crew. We were unable to have our community circle this week but it has been rescheduled for Friday, 11/1/19 if weather permits. See you there!

    We have been learning about the cultural artwork of Pedro Linales-Lopez. We will create alebrijes inspired by the artist and incorporate them into our Ofrenda for Día de Los Muertos. We assure you that our discussion will focus on the holiday as a unique, joyful and multi-cultural celebration rooted in Mexico.
