Image result for hola clipart  We have a very busy three weeks ahead of us as we wrap up the second quarter! (Wow! I can't believe it!) Here is a little of what will be going on in each grade level...

 

Kindergarten is just finishing Unit 2 ¿Cómo vivimos? (How do we live?) We are working on asking and answering the question, "¿Dónde vives?" (Where do you live?) We are using the describing words "grande" and "pequeño". We are becoming familiar with the rooms in the house. As the Christmas holiday draws near, we will be learning about the Puerto Rican singer, Jose Feliciano who wrote the song, Feliz Navidad, as well as the Mexican legend of the Christmas flower, the poinsettia. 

First grade has had a lot of fun with our FOOD unit. They have learned to say what they like/don't like to eat, say what they drink and eat, and ask what they want to eat/drink. They also learned vocabulary for table place settings (plate, glass, napkin, fork...)  I turned the classroom into a "restaurant" and we had fun roleplaying using our new vocabulary. We will finish up the unit with the question, "¿Cuántos hay?" (How many are there?) Students will be able to use the word "Hay..." (There are...) to tell how many there are. We will also be learning about and roleplaying the Hispanic Christmas tradition of Las posadas.

WHAT'S COMING HOME - Look out for these projects we have done in class that will be coming home soon. Have your child share with you what we learned.

KINDERGARTEN:

Yo vivo en... - We have learned there are many answers to the question where do you live and we practiced them (state, town, neighborhood, buildings). Students completed the phrase "I live in..." with either "a house" or "an apartment" and drew a picture of it.

La casa de Julio - We did a listening/coloring activity to become familiar with the names of the rooms in the house. Students then cut out the words and glued them under the correct room.

FIRST GRADE:

La comida mexicana - We discussed some popular mexican food and practiced using the phrase, "Me gusta/No me gusta" (I like/I don't like). Students colored and glued the written word next to the correct food item.

¿Qué quieres comer? - Students drew people dining at a restaurant eating tacos and tamales. They glued vocabulary phrases next to what each person was was ordering. 

¿Cuántos hay? - Students had to count the number of table setting items and fill them in. They practiced using the vocabulary, "There are/is..." (Hay...)

HERE ARE A FEW WAYS TO EARN PI HOURS:

1. I am always in need for a few volunteers that are good at cutting, gluing, and coloring.  I often have this type of work to send home.

2. If you have lived or are from a Spanish speaking country and would like to come in and tell us abou it...we would love it!

3. I can always use small items for Pepe's treasure box! 

4. If you would like to come in and spend a few hours, half a day, or all day in the classroom with me...I usually have things to do in the classroom from sharpening pencils, putting student work up/taking it down, organizing papers, etc. 

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED, PLEASE SHOOT ME AN EMAIL THAT INCLUDES YOUR NAME, YOUR CHILD'S NAME AND TEACHER, AVAILABLE DATE/S AND TIME/S.
