    First Graders completed their flags of Spanish-speaking countries. Students have been discussing topics of diversity and inclusion as it relates to recognizing and welcoming all people and recognizing variety in our family traditions. Community Circle Circle of Spanish-speaking nations/flags has been rescheduled for 11/1/19.

    Students have been practicing to answer, "¿Como estas?" and "¿Como te sientes hoy?". We wrote about our own feelings and which we thought was the most important emotion (sad, happy, angry, surprised, shy, afraid). We have also focus on two leaders for Hispanic Heritage Month: Rita Moreno and Roberto Clemente as well as learning a little about Puerto Rico and the flag.

    First graders are all about showing us what they know. We have been practicing our emotions and answering questions about how we feel. First graders created a chart about which emotion is the most important. We then shared with a partner and wrote/drew our responses. We are also reviewing days of the week- past, present and future, as well as discussing current date and weather. We will continue to celebrate Hispanic and Latino Heritage by learning about 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.
