Spanish Classes for the Week of February 9, 2015

Here’s what’s in store for Spanish classes for the week of February 9:

Pre-K:  Last week, we began making Spanish Valentine’s Day cards, and reinforcing the Spanish phrase “te amo” which we learned the week before in a Spanish book we read together.  We will finish our Valentine’s this week, so that the students can bring them home.

Kindergarten:  We will continue working on food vocabulary by making Bingo cards and playing Bingo to practice these words.

First Grade:  This week we will finish drawing and labeling our own version of “El Mar,” focusing on key Spanish vocabulary words, based on the “imaginary field trip” to the beach we took.

Second Grade:  We will play Bingo to reinforce the words we have learned for the parts of the body.

Third Grade:  We will spend one more week using the vocabulary words we learned for the parts of the body.  This week we will review gender and number in Spanish nouns.

Fourth Grade:  We will begin Lesson 4 in our textbooks, talking about ordering in Spanish at a restaurant, food vocabulary, types of money in Spanish-speaking countries, and Guatemala.

Fifth Grade:  We will review for our Lesson 8 and 9 test, which will be on Thursday.

Sixth Grade:  We will continue working on Unit 4 Vocabulary in preparation for our vocabulary quiz on Thursday.

SJV Student Council organized a Social Justice Service Project during Catholic Schools Week to help the homeless students in Sumner County. Food items were collected to put into food packs for the students to take home after school. Thanks to the SJV parents and students the Students Council was able to meet their goal of making 70 food packs for the Sumner County students.
