Spanish

December 2022

Note from your teacher

Hola familias de Watertown,


We hope you are all staying healthy and doing well. We can hardly believe December break is here! These weeks we continue finishing Unit 1 across all the grades. Students have been working diligently in these projects and it is wonderful to see how much more confident they are now presenting and talking with other classmates in Spanish! In kindergarten students colored a kite and they said the colors in Spanish; in first grade students finished the book project "Mi escuela Lowell," and they are presenting their project to the class. In second grade, students are presented their ideal schedule while using the sentence "en la mañana tengo____ (in the morning I have______); en la tarde tengo______(in the afternoon I have______). In third grade, students are working on a project "All About Me." In fourth grade students are interviewing classmates and in fifth grade, students are creating a famous person to present it to the class .


We are looking forward to continue learning and practicing Spanish with your child(ren)!


Have a great December break and happy holidays!


Saludos,

Sra. Quesada & Sra. Mitchell
