Esta semana dijimos “adios” a inglés y los niños me prometieron intentar hablar solamente en español. Tuvimos una fiesta fantástica y los niños rompieron su piñata, comieron dulces y colgaron su promesa en el salón. De acuerdo con su promesa yo también solamente voy a usar español…..JUST KIDDING!!
But really, the kindergarteners are so proud of all the Spanish they know and were very excited to celebrate this week. Thank you to those of you who were able to make it. Be sure to see all the photos on the photo page.
Mark your calendars for our Spring Program! Plan on Tuesday, May 6 at the Quest Center for grades K-4. Our program will begin at 7:00pm. Children should plan to arrive between 6:30pm-6:50pm. They should plan to wear a dark colored T-shirt with shorts or pants. Looking forward to seeing you there!

This week our sight words were “tengo” and “tomar.” We also worked on making some signs to hang around the school that remind people to make good choices: Pick up your trash, Don’t waste water, Recycle!, Listen to your teacher, and more. We made these during our writing time and then went to the computer lab where we used KidPix to make and then print out our signs.
In Math we have been working on separating numbers into parts. We practiced the “baile de dedos” where we thought of all the different parts of a given number (i.e. 10 is 4 and 6, 7 and 3….) This is a great game to play at home.
This week we focused on all of the events leading up to the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord. This culminated in a very special chapel on Friday morning. We also made murals of these events and hung them in the hallway for others to see:
