Rivendell Spanish Language

Latin American Market

Olé, the mercado was a success.  Students made piñatas, poppers, cupcakes, origami, airplanes, catapults, jewelry, cookies, metalwork and more.  Thanks to all the parents for their support in making the student projects.  It was a loud and happy commons where students came to spend their pesos.  Shouts of ‘compralo’ were heard as eager vendedores sold their wares!  Students had the opportunity to practice speaking Spanish, and to bargain for fun crafts and food.  There were smiles all around as everyone visited the market.  The 5th graders presented a skit in Spanish to prepare for the experience.  Enjoy the photos of this annual fall highlight.
