¡Hola a todos! Time definitely flies by very quickly. I can't believe our second trimester is over, and we welcome a beautiful season, spring. These last couple of months we have very busy working on the following themes:
Kindergarten: El Calendario (The Calendar) & Los Colores (Colors)
1st grade: El sistema Solar (The Solar System) & Los Números del 0-30 (Numbers 0-30)
2nd grade: El Alfabeto (The Spanish Alphabet) & Las Estaciones y el Clima (Seasons and Weather)
7th (Spanish 1a): We completed our chapter 1B on Descriptions, and we started chapter 2a in which students talk about school subjects and materials needed for their different classes. They will also be completing a research on Education in Spanish speaking countries. In this project they will compare the education system in America and a Spanish-speaking country assigned to them.
8th (Spanish 1B): We completed our chapter 5.1 on La Familia, and we started chapter 5.2 in which students talk about housing and household chores. They will be starting this year's last chapter in a couple of weeks. It is all about traditional foods in Costa Rica, in preparation for their trip to this country in May.
