Niveles 1 y 2
      En marzo, we practiced el alfabeto in Spanish and in sign language!  We sang a song about our beautiful Earth, En Nuestra Tierra Tan Linda and played instruments and learned movements to go with it in Spanish Music class.  We also sang and played games with “Los Elefantes,” “La Pulga de San José,” and “La Granja” in Spanish Music class.  In Spanish class, students listened and watched as Señora Bertani told and illustrated the stories of Sadko y el Gusli (parts 1 and 2).  En abril, we began learning songs and lines for our ELC opera, La Leyenda del Coquí.  We also began reviewing colors in Spanish in preparation to earn the Spanish sticker for the ELC sticker charts.

      En marzo, we wrote and discussed in Spanish the choose your own ending chapter book that we read, Bart Quiere un Gato.  We also did a listen and draw activity with the same book.  Each class had a slightly different version of the story.  They had to listen as Señora Bertani described in Spanish which scenes from the story they were to draw.  Each class created a character, then drew them and colored them.  In abril, each class began creating their own story using one of the characters from our “Character Wall.”
