Yesterday the children received a Spanish lesson, conducted by our parent volunteer, Margarita. She covered various kinds of foods, and had the children match the Spanish word with the food she brought in Ziploc bags. She then gathered all of the food and put it in a bag that was placed in the center of the children’s circle. Latin music soon filled the room and the children began passing a ball around, with the child holding the ball when the music stopped asked to recite the correct Spanish word for the food they pulled out of the bag.
As you can tell from the photos, the children were having a great time, while also being exposed to the Spanish language and culture. They can’t wait for Margarita’s next lesson!
