“Estén siempre alegres, oren sin cesar, den gracias a Dios en toda situación porque esta es su voluntad para ustedes en Cristo Jesús.”

-1 Tesalonicenses 5:16-18

Most recently all grade levels have taken part in making piñatas from scratch in preparation for cinco de mayo (May 5th). We are still putting finishing touches on all 30ish of them as the holiday approaches. We are interspersing a unit on how to describe their feelings. I have also selected a couple of silent short films to create dialogue, build comprehension and linguistic abilities as we finish out the school year.

  

One major change which I initiated in October 2017 was our usage of the free application "Seesaw." Seesaw serves as a digital portfolio which will follow the each student year after year. Some of the benefits gained from its implementation are that students are able to see the progression of their language acquisition, families are connected to what is happening in the classroom, and it makes it possible for me to save instruction time for individual assessment by grading the uploads outside of class. Furthermore, the students appreciate having an audience of loved ones for their academic accomplishments! God has blessed them with the opportunity to learn another language and He has given them the skill set to achieve! (Please note that at the end of the school year caregivers will need to download their child(ren)'s projects in order for them to be saved. I will send out a reminder.)

 

 

God's blessings to you and yours as we say goodbye to winter and hello to spring!!
