I have just added a "video" game where I have turned one of the videos found here into a game to practice vocabulary recall. Enjoy!
Mother's Day celebrations are extremely important in the Lower School at Lovett. Both first and third grade students hold special presentations for their mothers, grandmothers, and special friends. This year, Third Graders (in both Spanish and French class) created a flower that describes all the special reasons why they care about their loved one. In the center bud, it states, "I love you because..." in their target language, and each petal is a descriptive word or phrase. Mothers were so excited to hear a special poem and song in both French and Spanish. Click on the video below to hear the song that we sang during the presentation. It was a beautiful day!
Students loved learning about Dia de los Muertos and enjoyed making masks to celebrate! To learn more about the holiday, click here.
I'm always amazed when children take charge of their learning. Instead of Señora Hoyos calling the numbers, a first grade student was randomly selected to be the caller for the game. Being the caller not only helped students practice their number skills, but it also boosted their confidence and self-esteem.
