Nido has been working on Spanish colors to compliment what they are doing in their classroom unit. We have read lots of picture books about colors, sung silly songs, and colored in rainbows labeled in Spanish.
Laguna is interested in migrations. We have studied the monarch butterfly migration to the mountains of Mexico, and are also looking at shorter trips one does around the city to different places - such as the school, store, or post office.
Lago is all about animals right now. We have connected our vocabulary of animal names to adjectives, learning about which animals hold world records for being big, small, fast etc. We are also connecting it to covering habitats where the different animals live.
Cielo made colorful posters to show off their fair trade knowledge and vocabulary. Spanish 2 also wrote personal thank-you letters to Antonio after his visit. Both Spanish 1 and 2 are starting to focus more on collaboratively telling, acting out and writing stories in Spanish.
