SPOTLIGHT ON CURRICULUM

 

SPANISH

Fifth graders from 5-B worked on labeling the face and body parts of clip art glued on construction paper. They are learning the vocabulary words listed in their textbook in Unit One: Lessons 1 and 2.

Both fifth grade classes voted for their favorite Spanish song between the two choices given.
The title of the song selected by the majority of the students in 5-A as well as in 5-B is: "Mi Madre Tierra (Oye)" by Chayanne. It is a positive song about hope, getting back on your feet when you fall and being grateful for the gift of life.
The music has a "catchy" beat and great latin rhythms.  The translation can be found here.
