D is for... "Los Días/ Me duele..."

October 10, 2016

We are continuing to practice the parts of the body with the older students and the youngest students are learning the days of the week this week.  We are learning to pronounce the letter "D" (day), and we are learning about the Dominican Republic and Diego Rivera.  The youngest students are learning the question, "¿Qué dia es?" (What day is it?).  We will be singing about the days of the week and reading "La Oruga Muy Hambrienta" (The Very Hungry Caterpillar) and "La Semana de Cookie" (Cookie's Week).  The older students are practicing all the parts of the body they learned last week by adding the phrase "Me duele..." (My _____ hurts.).  We will be pretending to visit a doctor's office and the students will take turns being doctors and patients.  If students ever travel to a Spanish speaking country, it is important to be able to talk about your health in case you aren't feeling well when you are away from home.  Also be sure to ask about the Dominican Republic and Diego Rivera.  What does the Dominican Republic have in the middle of its flag?  What does Diego Rivera like to paint?

 

This is a very special week as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage month with a POSTER CONTEST!  Students are asked to create a poster that showcases their favorite part of learning Spanish, why they think learning Spanish is important, or a cultural aspect of interest to them.  Please make the posters bright and colorful!  We will be choosing the best posters from the upper grades to compete in a state-wide competition through the RIFLA (Rhode Island Foreign Language Association).  Have fun!

 

Coming up next week... E is for "¿Dónde Está la Estrella?" (Where's the star- learning prepositions)
