World Language Update

December, 2015

Dear Parents,

This month in Kindergarten, students have been learning the parts of the body and continuing to practice numbers. Some students can even count to 15! They also know a variety of colors. Ask your child to count some objects around the house and see how high they can go!

First through fourth grades are working on shapes and their characteristics. How many sides does a triangle have? After vacation we will begin a unit comparing families in the United States to families in Mexico. We will begin by reading a book that explains how all families are different. In Mexico the extended family is important. Many children live with not only their parents but also their grandparents and sometimes even aunts and uncles.

Remember to visit our updated website at, to find out what we are doing in class and to access some activities and websites.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.
