Preschool and younger kids learned about Three Kings Day and compared celebrations and customs in different countries. They also discussed weather terms and fun activities to do in winter and the snow. Preschoolers practiced poems and songs related to snowmen. Younger kids identified mountains and plains and animals that lived in each environment.
Middle kids also learned about plants and animals that live in the desert and practiced new vocabulary. They listened to Tumbleweed Stew and illustrated food words. Students talked about things they liked and didn’t like using the phrase “Me gusta … and no me gusta…”
Older kids are building their conversational skills. They can talk about their favorite season and what the weather is like during that season. They have practiced map skills and discussed places to travel and modes of transportation. Currently, they are learning vocabulary for electronic devices and how they are used.
