This week, we will begin learning about the Dominican Republic. The Dominican Republic was the first stop for Christopher Columbus and has the oldest university, cathedral, and hospital in the "New World." As we study about this country, we'll also be learning about parts of the body and going to the doctor. Latin Americans have many beliefs about illnesses and how to best cure them. We'll be talking about some home remedies as well as some funny "cures" for everything from headaches to hiccoughs.
Students will be bringing home a new HomeFUN page this week. Please be sure to visit my website often. There are new games, videos, quizzes, and worksheets to look at. Practicing at home is a great way to reinforce the vocabulary we are learning in class. Please encourage your students to practice their Spanish as much as possible!
