    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.

    Kindergarten continues to learn about our emotions in tandem with parts of the parts of our bodies. Learning Target: • I can teach others about Latino-American leaders and artists. • I can describe and share my feelings/emotions. Students have been practicing to answer, "¿Como estas?" and "¿Como te sientes hoy?". We wrote about the feelings of our shape monsters. We have also focused on two leaders for Hispanic Heritage Month: Carlos Santana and Elena Ochoa as well as learning a little about Mexico and the flag.
