' Noticias' Winter/Invierno

El invierno/The winter, has perhaps come and gone!  Conferences have been a chance for the younger ones to show the Spanish room and their activities to their parents.   Older students have been able to read and show their latest projects to parents.  I am very proud of the students' enthusiasm to practice Spanish.  The fifth grade will be beginning their shopping simulation this week in which students buy and sell in Spanish from each other.  We have a 'supermercado', 'papeleria','libreria', 'tienda de ropa' y 'tienda de mascotas', selling food, stationery, books, clothing and pets, respectively.  It is always an exciting time, even though we only use play money!
