    Second graders are our experts. We will be able to share our skills with 7th-graders and 8th-grade Spanish students from refroe wh oare visiting us next week. We have been reviewing questions about our feelings, the weather and how to count to 30 without making a mistake.

    Second graders created a chart about our favorite places around our school. Students have been practicing to correctly name people and locations around our school. Working with a partner- we also practicing describing "Why?" and writing our ideas down on paper. We created a graph to show our favorite places. El patio de recreo (the playground) was favored by most! We will continue to explore Spanish-speaking countries during Hispanic Heritage Month: Argentina, Bolivia- next is Chile. Flags of these countries will appear on the Georgia Spanish assessment in February. We will continue our research using video, small-group games, and our chrome books from Argentina all the way to Venezuela.

    We continued our unit on school through making connection between the people who work at Oakhurst and naming the places in our school. Students are exploring Hispanic Heritage Month. They will learn the names of all Spanish speaking countries, their flags, and the important contributions of Latino Americans to American culture. We hope this becomes a meaningful way to recognize kindness, collaboration, and perseverance in ourselves and important Latino/Latino-American leaders.
