Grade 3 students heard about the legend of the QUETZAL bird in GUATEMALA in Spanish class at Holy Cross Catholic School this past week. They constructed their own birds to decorate the classroom and practiced reading the short paragraph.
Senora Lardinois also passed along Spanish class news from her other classes throughout the school:
In kindergarten we are beginning with numbers 1-10 in song, chant and poster.
Grades 1 and 2 are reviewing numbers. We also are practicing with our introductions.
Grades 4 and 5 have begun to learn names of different professions. They will soon be able to use their Spanish to ask and answer short questions.
Grade 6 students have begun their BRAVO Spanish textbook for the first time. They are working on the skill of introductions of self and others.
Grade 7 and 8 students are reviewing a lesson on school vocabulary and are practicing dialogues in small groups.
It is to my great satisfaction that Grades 1-8 all are able to pray a simple prayer and also recite the Pledge of Allegiance in Spanish.
