May (mayo)

This month we are going to be learning about the garden. The book The gigant turnip ( El nabo gigante), is an excellent book to introduce the children to this concept, and to review old ones. A Russian folktale translated to Spanish, to share with the children in more than one language. We also wil be talking about Cinco de mayo; a very important mexican celebration. For el dia de las madres (mother's day), the children will make a little surprise in Spanish to take home. The sixth graders are going to say the Hail Mary in Spanish for May Crowning. During Memorial day (Dia de la Recordacion) we will remember our soldados.


April (abril)

En abril agua mil.Smile

Last month Pope Benedict the XVI went to Mexico and Cuba. What a great experience to share with the kids! The Pope visited two countries where Spanish is the first language. We watched him on the computer. The children had a good time trying to understand what they were saying; they speak very fast. It was also interesting for the kids to know that Pope in Spanish means Papa, because they learned that potato and dad also means papa.

The 6th graders made posters related to You're connected... know communicated, to ilustrade how technology and languages used together helps them to express their ideas.   

As we started the Holy Week, I shared with the kids my tradition of Palm Sunday. Pictures of my dad making "braids" with the palms (ramos), and showing them some examples. During this Holy Week, the children are learning the prayer of the Guardian Angel in both languages. We are also learning about the Towel of Babbel, and how the Bible teaches us about the beginning of the languages.

This month we are also learning about Spring (Primavera) and some words related to this season.
