Koalas Class

We hope you had a great Thanksgiving celebration with your loved ones. Koalas were very happy to come back to school and eager to learn new things every day.

During this week the students were introduced to a variety of land vehicles where they also reviewed shapes such as “circulos y cuadradros” (circles and squares) to make their own trucks and school buses. The students also worked on finding patterns and putting two pieces together to identify pictures of different vehicles. In order to practice the numbers 1-5 the students counted and identified the quantity represented in a worksheet. Koalas enjoyed working on their very own trains while they reviewed the letters contained in their names.

First Grade Class

Welcome to Week 13. This was a different week for our first graders. However, they each pushed through it and proved to be the hardworking and dedicated students we truly enjoy educating day in and day out. Let’s see what our first graders learned this week.

Students worked on sustantivos comunes y propios (common and proper nouns). They correctly recognized common nouns and their corresponding proper nouns and vice versa.

Students have thus far learned about the northwestern and southwestern regions of the United States. This week they wrapped up their study on the southwestern region as they studied the state of Colorado.
Students worked on tongue twisters that contained the ‘r’ and the ‘rr’. They then practiced switching out the ‘r’ for the ‘rr’ and vice versa to make new words with different definitions. For example “coro” turns into “corro”, “para” into “parra” and “carro” to “caro” etc. This exercise also helped students learn new Spanish words.

Kindergarten Class

This week had 2 English days and 3 Spanish days. Students learned how to write the Letter Hh on their whiteboards, smartboard, and workbooks. They learned that the letter Hh makes a sound in English but in Spanish it is silent. Students also worked stretching all their letters sounds to write words in English (ham, hop, hit, hen, hips, hum, hat) and in Spanish (helado, hada, hombre, hacha, hucha,)

This week students were introduced to new sight words in both languages. In English students wrote sentences using the sight words (little, here, go) In Spanish they tried their best to write sentences using their new palabras de frecuencia (y, es, mi).

In Math students continue to work on adding and subtracting on a number line. Next week we will learn about fact families.

In International studies, students have begun to explore Ecuador. Ask them what are the colors of the Ecuadorian Flag. They learned ecuador is the Spanish word for Equator.

In History/Geography, students learned how to read a compass (brujula) They learned where is norte, sur, oeste, and este. Next week we will continue to work on this while learning the English vocabulary.

In Science, students are learning about different properties. As scientist, they can observe the color and the size of an object. Next week we will briefly review these words in Spanish and learn about observing weight of an object.
