Third and Fourth Grade


       ¡Bienvenidos a la primavera!

¿Qué pasa en la clase de Español?


April - May


The students are having fun learning about "La Ropa". At the same time they are learning about places to go and what type of clothing to pack in their "maletas"!

Let's make Guacamole at home!

 To celebrate Cinco de mayo at the school, the students made a yummy Guacamole. They also did a Guacamole graph to count how many students like "me gusta" o dislike "no me gusta" el guacamole. Mr Scribner class used the graph to work on math also. Buen trabajo estudiantes!!!!

September- January

3rd and 4th graders are in their second year of learning Spanish. They also have a routine at the beginning of every class where they are asked to tell the date for today, tomorrow and yesterday and describe the weather for those days.  Here is some of the vocabulary they have learned:

Hoy es….. (today is….)

Ayer fue…. (yesterday was…)

Mañana es….. (tomorrow is...)

And some of the weather conditions:

Hace fresco… it’s cool

Hace viento… it’s windy

Hace mucho frío…. It’s very cold

Hace buen tiempo…. It’s nice weather

Hace mal tiempo… It’s bad weather

Hay neblina…. It’s foggy

With both grades we continue to reinforce feelings and common expression in Spanish.  Here are some examples of the vocabulary your child has been exposed to:

Estoy triste - I am sad

Está triste - she/he is sad

Estoy cansado - I am tired

Está confundida - she is confused

Estoy feliz - I am happy.

Tengo frío - I am cold.

Tengo hambre - I am hungry.

Tengo sueño - I am sleepy.

One of the highlights of the late fall/early winter was a movie talk on a short film called, “The Black Hole.” During this movie talk, students learned many high frequency Spanish vocabulary words. We taught the vocabulary by having the students describe events from the film and even act out the storyline as we narrated the events in Spanish so the students could practice the new Spanish vocabulary.
