¡HOLA!

I hope you are enjoying the holiday season as much as I am. Here are some things we are learning and doing in the Spanish classroom this December:

-Learning about the world renowned Hispanic musician, Jose Feliciano.

-Singing and dancing to José Feliciano’s popular Christmas song, ¡Feliz Navidad!

-Singing and dancing to a snowman song: Mi hombre de nieve…

-Learning about “el nacimiento” (the nativity) and the important role it plays at Christmas time in Hispanic countries.

-Reading the story, The Legend of the Poinsettia by Tomie DePaula. (Kindergarten)

-Learning about the traditional Mexican celebration of Las Posadas. (A Mexican festival commemorating Mary and Joseph's search for shelter before Jesus' birth.) (First grade)

-Reading the story, The Night of Las Posadas by Tomie DePaula. (First grade)

-Learning about Los Reyes Magos (Three Kings Day), an important holiday celebrated in many Hispanic countries on January 6th when the three kings bring gifts to children.

In Kindergarten we are also working on counting from 16 to 20. First grade is practicing numbers 20-30. There are two weeks left to test on the days of the week and the month of the year
.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call (259-7700) or e-mail me (misty.barker@tvcs.org).

!Feliz Navidad!  !Prospero Año y Felicidad!

Hasta 2015!
