Rivendell Spanish Language

Hispanic Heritage Month

September 15 – October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month.  This month Rivendell students will learn about the many contributions of the Hispanic community.  We will celebrate the culture and customs.  Enjoy this poem by Carmen Tafolla

Tu tesoro                                                                         Your treasure

Hay un tesoro escondido                                                There lies a hidden treasure

más brillante que oro puro.                                             The world has not yet seen

Tu pasado, sueños, futuro                                              You hold this treasur in your voice,

son en tu voz el gran tesoro


Preschool:  We have been practicing Spanish greetings and color words.

Younger kids:  We are learning the Spanish alphabet and reciting the date in Spanish

Middle kids:  Oral practice with Spanish phrases, greetings and questions.  Understanding verbs and memorizing sentences.

Older kids:  Vocabulary for likes/dislikes and shopping/food terms.  Dialogue practice with verb conjugations.


Welcome to Spanish

I am looking forward to a great year of Spanish language experiences.
