Thanksgiving!!!

Holaaa amigosss!!! How is everyone doing???? Let me tell you all I am stuffed….Thanksgiving was amazing…. I am so thankful for so many things in life and one of those things are my students; they are all amazing and have a special spot in my heart. Last week, throughout all grades, we learned “buenos modales” (manners). In life being polite is very important. I know many parents love eating out at Mexican or Colombian restaurants, maybe even Cuban, and how proud does it make us that our children can communicate the most important words to the waiter “gracias” (thank you), “denada” (you’re welcome), and “porfavor” (please)?! It makes me super proud that our kids can show our spanish world they know good spanish manners. In the midst of that, we also learned the names of our eating utensils. We had a good week, and more fun and activities to be expected for next week. Hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving as I did!!

Mexican Independent Day shenanigans!!!

Hollaaaaaa FELIZ VIERNES A TODOS!!!! HAPPY FRIDAY TO EVERYONE….. I WILL KEEP THE BLOG SHORT AND LET THE PICTURES SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES!!!! I will tell you last week was Mexican Independence Day, and the week was full of videos of MEXICAN ranchero music and AMAZZIINGGG SNACKSS. Every single one of the students really enjoyed themselves. We went over how Independence Day started in Mexico, and who started it. We also watched videos of children exploring Mexico on DISCOVERY. On Thursday, we had a Mexican themed party and listened to music and ate chips , goya cookies, salsa, queso, and goya cream juice…. They enjoyed every bit of it and it made me so happy to see them happy❤. This week we covered our shapes and did a lot of worksheets. They really enjoy doing them and my smaller babies did just a couple of “color the shapes” worksheets and read a book and sang “arroz con leche”. I am amazed how some knew this whole song!!!!! The older students went over numbers from 0-100. We are doing good, it’s a process to learn all these numbers so we will still be going over them next week until they feel comfortable with them…. That’s all for now BLOG FRIENDS! Enjoy your weekend.

Successful week!

Hola a todos!!!! Hello to everyone. This was the first week of school and it went GREAT. The students in primary school were excellent, and very well mannered and respectful. It’s going to be a great year in SPANISH. This week the youngest students practiced their “HOLA, ADIOS, and COMO ESTAS.” With practice they will be perfecto!!! The primary school went over the alphabet and they did wonderful with it. Towards the end of the week we did a little bit of research about Spain we read an article named “64 amazing SPAIN”, which they enjoyed and were full of questions. Next week we will go over the calendar months and days of the week…..STAY TUNED!

Me llaman

Saludos a todos! Hello to everyone! How has your week been??? Mine has been great, been getting things ready for the new school year. Let me start by saying I am super proud of the campers, they totally out-did themselves!!! On Tuesday in music they learned about salsa music and the depths of where it came from. After, they came to Spanish and I taught them how to dance SALSA!!! At the beginning they were shy but slowly but surely opened up and did very good. On Wednesday we had a salsa party. I bought plantain chips and mango juice and they LOVED IT!!!! They enjoyed themselves and so did I; it couldn’t have gone any better. With the little ones we learned how to introduce ourselves and how to say “MY NAME IS…” “ME LLAMO.” They are doing good! Next week I will go over the subject with them and we will practice some more. PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT!!! I’ve been at this school one month already and that being said I feel like I’ve known these kids way longer than that. Today I’m having mixed emotions excited, sad, worried, nervous. The reason why is because TODAY is most of my students last day with me, they will be going to other schools. They are so smart and I know they will do great wherever they go!
