Classroom news - September 6

In second grade, we are learning animal and color words in Spanish.  I love how enthusiastic all of the students were during our animal game today and am impressed with how many color and animal words they remember from last year.
Third graders are learning the days of the week in Spanish.  We sang songs and played games to practice identifying the days and putting them in the correct order.
Fourth graders are learning to identify family members and say one's name in Spanish.
Fifth graders played a review game today to practice vocabulary and grammar from last year.  I was impressed with how much they remember!  We began reading a short story in Spanish, and we will return to it next week (we will act it out and do some activities to work on reading comprehension).
