Students have done a great job exploring the culture and customs of Spain in our school wide topic study of Europe. It has been fun to build our language skills and knowledge of this beautiful country. Students learned that the guitar and flamenco dance originated in Spain. They acquired new vocabulary through traditional Spanish literature such as Medio Pollito , Don Quijote de la mancha and The Story of Ferdinand. Middle kids created the Fuente de Cibeles in Madrid and castles.
Older kids learned a new card game called Manos nervioso. It is a fun way to practice numbers in Spanish and develop quick reflexes. We look forward to learning more about Carnival celebrations and practice reading, writing and speaking in Spanish.
