Spanish Birthday Calendars

Hola familias,

2nd  graders are bringing home their birthday “calendarios” between today & the next 2 weeks. They can keep/save them until their birthdays and/or recycle them.

Feel free to ask them how to say the days, month, etc…they did so with me in class! (We have learned numbers 1-10 together.)

(Videos of these or on my class “wiki” [link below]; if interested- click on 2nd Grade.)

They will also bring home a worksheet or 2 that they did in class if they had extra time.

 

Muchas gracias,

Señorita Kelly

Spanish decoration coming home!

Hola familias,

Students started coming home today (or will come home in January) with a small “mosaic” that they made in class to practice the Spanish numbers and colors. I told them they could use it as a decoration on their bedroom doors or wherever a parent allows.

The color code key is as follows (FYI):

Cero = gris

Uno = rojo

Dos = amarillo

Tres = morado / violeta

Cuatro = anaranjado / naranja

Cinco = verde

Seis = azul

Siete = rosado /rosa

Ocho = café / marrón

Nueve = negro

Diez = blanco

We have also been working on identifying numbers. Here’s a video of the #s should you or your child like to view it at home: http://youtu.be/8ydJr1Is8xI

 

 Have a wonderful break and ¡Próspero Año Nuevo!

2nd Grade books- home- & video links

Hola familias,

Students will come home by the end of next week with a small book of phrases & words they’ve been exposed to for some basic greetings. (Some have recently done so already.)

I encouraged your children to show you their reading in Spanish. And, if they want to add additional coloring, etc. to it, of course they may do so.

Last, 2nd graders have requested links for this song/video we’ve been watching to learn some “colores” along with the link for a class reading of the small books:

2nd Grade Weather Comics

Hola familias,

Beverly 2nd Graders are coming home with “comics” that have at least 1 recently learned weather expression in them. West Maple 2nd graders will come home with them next week (due to scheduling). (Students have an M- mastery, MM- meeting most of the standard, or W- working towards the standard on their paper just so the students can get an idea of where they might be at with such a project in 3rd Grade.) Feel free to have your child read and/or explain them to you. 🙂

We are finishing the year with learning about names for family members and pets. More details to come. 

 

Muchas gracias,
