Spanish 4 Class

Students in Spanish 4 made "Tiós de Nadal" on the last day before winter break to celebrate this Spanish custom. Students made their own "logs" , stuffed them with a small gift, and gave their logs to someone else in class. Their "Tiós" were all very creative and original. Everyone had a great time!
