“Spanish Review Week DOS” is next!

Hello all,

¡La primera Semana de Ejercitacion en Espanol fue excellente! – i.e. – The first week of Spanish Review was excellent!  The students spent the entire week practicing and reviewing the vocabulary they learned throughout the 2013-2014 school year.  The students reviewed four units, detailed below, during the first week of Spanish Review.  The remaining units of study will be completed next week during Spanish Review Week DOS!   Read on below to learn about the fun that was had and learning that took place during Spanish Review Week Uno!

The students came to school with TONS of Spanish shares this past week.  They brought in different animales, Spanish instruments such as castanets and maracas, as well as various toy vehicles like camión (truck) and carros (cars).  Of course, everyone’s favorite Spanish speaking cartoon characters, Dora and Diego, also made appearances in the share box throughout the week!

On Tuesday, the students spent the morning playing assorted Spanish activity games with both Miss Jasmin and Miss Lauren.  Whether it is was a Spanish matching activity game, Bilingual Bingo, or Simón Dice (Simon Says), the students sure had a blast!




Tuesday’s morning activity took place outside as the students reviewed their Los Numeros (Numbers) vocabulary by putting a “Spanish-spin” on some of their favorite outdoor playground games!  “¿Qué Hora Es, Señor Zorro?” (What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?) and Rayuela (Hopscotch) proved to be perfect and extra fun ways to review los numeros!




In the afternoons throughout each day of “Spanish Review Week” the students participated in technology presentations where they reviewed their vocabulary but also had the opportunity to witness some of their favorite classroom storybooks come to life – en Español – in Spanish!  Do you recognize this story?



Seeing that the end of the school year is rapidly approaching, the teachers used Wednesday, the day designated for La Familia (Family) vocabulary to return some of the students’ work being displayed around the classroom.  The teachers took down the “Family Portraits” that were drawn during September’s “All About Me Week”.  For their morning work, the students were called over to view these pieces of art and recreate them!  The students giggled as they looked at some of their drawings from way back in September.  After, the students labeled their drawings with the following words for various family members – Madre (Mother), Padre (Father), y Hermano/a (Brother/Sister).  Once the portraits were completed, the students all noted how differently they draw now!  The teachers explained that this was because they were getting bigger and growing up!  The students were so pleased!  Take a look below to see some of the changes in drawing abilities over the past year.  It is really quite impressive!




On Thursday, the students reviewed another unit of study – Mi Cuerpo (My Body).  The students spent the morning playing Simón Dice (Simon Says) to practice their Mi Cuerpo vocabulary.  They certainly had a blast despite not fully following the rules! 🙂




On Friday, the students reviewed their Los Colores/Colors vocabulary by selecting their Dos (2) favorite colores and creating a special free paint!




Before the technology presentation that the afternoon, the students played charades and other guessing games to help practice their Spanish vocabulary.  One game involved the students hunting for a particular colored items then presenting it to their classmates. Can you tell which color items this group of students collected during their color hunt?


If you said, “Amarillo” (Yellow) then you are correct!

Well, that is all for “Spanish Review Week UNO”. Be sure to check the blog again next week as the students complete the final week of Spanish Review.  As always, thank you for reading and have a wonderful and safe weekend!
