Please click on this slide show video to enjoy pictures of some of our activities in our Spanish class.  During the holidays we were able to learn about Christmas traditions, we cut the Rosca de Reyes.  We also were able to send some books to Mexico that the students created.  They are so talented!  There are also some pictures of our Tacos and Salsas speaking activities we do often.  Students now are able to speak Spanish for 1 minute! They are sounding great!

My House Has Stars

Submitted by chris.killpack on Fri, 01/28/2022 - 11:07

During the second term, Ms. ZoBell's students worked really hard on a writing project called "My House Has Stars" based on the mentor text of the same name by Megan McDonald that was used to help guide their writing.

Students learned how mood affects tone in writing as well as used intentional fragments to improve sentence variety. They also had to include figurative language in their papers to gear them up for the unit that followed (which was all about how figurative language enhances our writing).
