In kindergarten, we are reading "Oso Cafe" (Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see? by Eric Carle). We will be learning our animals and colors in Spanish. Our culture focus in kindergarten is Mexico, and we will be learning about Dia de los Muertos (a holiday in Mexico where families honor their loved ones who have passed away).
In first and second grade, we are starting "El Artista que Pinta el Caballo Azul" (The Artist who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle). We will be learning more colors and animals, plus reviewing some that we have previously learned. In first grade we have been studying Spain and we recently learned about Christopher Columbus and his journey to America. Our 2nd grade culture focus is Central America. We learned about the Dominican Republic and how baseball is very important to the country. We will soon be learning about Puerto Rico.
As always, please check our newsletters and website to see what we have been learning in class.
