December (diciembre)



This month the children are going to be learning about Christmas in Spanish-speaking countries. Second grade will go around the school asking for shelter. This is a celebration from Mexico. This represents the journey of Joseph and Mary looking for a place to have their baby. It is called Las Posadas.

We also are going to be learning about the history of poinsettias, and making one.

My favorite celebration is The Three King's Day (January 6th). We are going to learn about how important this day is in Spanish-speaking countries, and how we celebrate it.


Hasta pronto,

señora B.






We celebrate el Dia de los Muertos at school at school today. Chelsey, a student from Rivier University, came to made calaveras de azucar and share some Spanish with second grade. Gracias Chelsey.




November (noviembre)



The children are learning about how we can find Spanish information in many of the products that we use every day. He are some labels that the kids found with information in Spanish and many other languages.











This month we are going to be decorating calaveras de azúcar (sugar skulls), from second grade up, to celebrate el día de los muertos (all souls day or the day of the dead). This is a celebration to remember the love ones that are not longer with us. This is a nice video that explains this event in a very simple way for the kids to understand rockalingua.com

We are continuing to learn the alphabet in Spanish using different songs. This is a good one: Dia de los Muertos Song- Celebrate Mexican Day of te Death with BASHO & FRIENDS
