Cuando seas mayor, que quieres ser?

This is the question that I asked the fifth grade Spanish students at SCS. What does that mean? “When you are older, what do you want to be?” Students in fifth grade Spanish have been learning professions, likes, and characteristics. They’ve been working hard on writing and learning how to pronounce some challenging words correctly. Students were able to talk about the profession that they would like to have when they grow up, what activities they like about that job, and what characteristics make them a good fit for that job! When the project was done, they presented them to the class. If you haven’t been down to the elementary office in a while, make sure you stop down and see the projects posted in the hallway! Here is a sample translation of what they might have said: “When I’m older, I want to be an artist. I want to be an artists because I like to pain and draw. I would be a good artist because I am talented, artistic, and creative.”

Versos Nuevos

Buenos dias!

I have to say that time has gotten away from me and I’ve gotten behind in some of my posts! Lo siento – I’m sorry!

Students have been working on two Spanish Bible verses since the last post.

Mateo 22

Matthew 22:39 was learned around the time of Valentine’s Day and we talked about the importance of loving our neighbors because Christ loved us first! Students learned some simple hand motions with this verse, so don’t forget to ask them about it at home! “Love your neighbor as yourself.”


Salmo 119

The verse we are working on right now is from Psalms and is one that we’ve all heard, but I think we forget the importance of it in our daily lives. Psalm 119:105 says – “Your word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.”


Please take the time to ask your students about these verses at home! It’s a great way for you to encourage their language learning and you can learn too!


Bendiciones, blessings 🙂
