Students in St. James’ Spanish class continue to expand their vocabulary, learning phrases such as ¡Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo!, árbol de Navidad, and Niño Dios. The students love their holiday arts and crafts that they made in the class. They made pulseras nivideñas, árbolitos de navidad, and muñecos de nieve. We even learned some riddles in Spanish.
Students continue to learn how to ask questions in Spanish. For example, they learned how to ask a person what is their favorite book. To do this, they first had to learn words to start a questions, such as why, what, when, where, which, who, and how. Now students are learning how to write short sentences in Spanish by using vocabulary they learned in previous lessons.
