3rd Grade Spanish class update

Hola familias,

3rd Graders last week- this week received a SMALL piece of “pan de muerto” (Day of the Dead bread, which is a mildly sweet bread). We went over some of the thoughts and/or beliefs held by some people who celebrate this holiday in Spanish-speaking countries. We are reminded that just because someone thinks or believes something doesn’t mean that EVERYONE does, nor does it mean that we have to think or believe it.

For students with allergies, I gave them a piece of a “tostada”- basically a giant tortilla chip. No one had to eat their entire piece or even try it if they don’t want to. Here’s a recipe of it in case you’d like to have a better idea of what’s in it/what it looks like: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/7224/pan-de-muertos-mexican-bread-of-the-dead/ *Some students wanted me to let you know that the bread they tried was from Sheila’s bakery in Pontiac. 🙂

Last, students will have their first graded assessments home to you by the end of this week. Additionally, some asked if they could bring a “exit ticket” home on greetings and feelings- so, some of them will have that as well. They do not need to be returned unless the item says “parent signature” on it. GRACIAS

If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

3rd Grade Spanish test!

Hola familias,

In addition to reviewing words that we already know in Spanish, we’ve been talking about good reasons to learn a 2nd language, and where Spanish is the first language in the world.

HOMEWORK: STUDY (if needed)! Study what?

1.) the country that Spanish came from,

2.) a good reason to learn a second language,

3.) knowing the names of 2 other Spanish-speaking countries

 

ASSESSMENT DATES: this Friday, Oct. 20 (Konen & Palmer), and Monday, Oct. 23 (Paholak)

 

Optional homework- yes, it is 100% optional: Students are welcome to bring in 1 (one) item that represents their heritage on the above mentioned dates. (Some examples might include: a country’s flag, a traditional clothing item, a recipe, a book, and/or a photo, etc.) They are also welcome to write down answers to the optional 3 homework questions that are on the worksheet they bring home to study (From what countries/continents did our ancestors come? Did they know English when they came here? What heritage (practices that are handed down from the past by tradition) does our family have?)

 

Last, students will bring home a postcard this week with a (or more than one) Spanish speaking-country flag(s) on them. Enjoy!

 

Muchas gracias,

Señorita Kelly
