  • Ownership and self-regulation in a student-driven culture

What We Have Been Learning

Spanish with Señora Meyer

Hola familias,

Kindergarteners and First Graders are continuing to add to their Spanish vocabulary through activities, games and conversations. This month we’ve added “I like” and “I don’t like” as we talk about cookies. I find that there are lots of strong opinions out there about cookies! In the coming weeks, students will bring home to share a mini-book about a family of cookies.

Second graders are making the jump from responding verbally in Spanish to writing in the language. Writing is a more complex language skill and needs scaffolding to help students work at this new level. To practice our writing, students are creating their own monster, then using a sentence frame to write several sentences about their creation. These projects will be completed before the winter break.
