¡Fíjense qué gran amor nos ha dado el Padre, que se nos llame hijos de Dios! ¡Y lo somos!

-1 Juan 3:1

(2018-2019 St. John theme passage)

WELCOME BACK!!!

 

As the school year gets underway, we are reacquainting our minds with vocabulary we visited in the spring and building on it. The kindergartners are becoming more accustomed to listening for
and answer to their Spanish name. All the children are well on their way to memorizing St. John's theme passage which is taken from 1 John 3:1. Most students enjoy getting out of their
seats to get their blood flowing while committing this passage to memory. Movement augments blood flow to the brain, which stimulates a more efficient learning process. They sing and
dance their way through the verse,as I have coupled it with the Chicken Dance melody. Adding a little fun and movement to their academic day is always welcomed by students!
May God continue to bless the efforts of the students in my care.
 
 

 

 
 
 

We once again are utilizing the application "Seesaw". Seesaw serves as a digital portfolio which will follow each student year after year, if a subscription is purchased. 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 Spanish 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 download your child(ren)'s projects before the new school year commences in order for them to be saved for your own enjoyment for years to come.)
