We will continue to weave cultural information about specific countries into our lessons. In the last couple of weeks the kids learned about Cuba.
They also learned how to say Happy Valentine’s Day. The lesson on learning how to say the date was reinforced, and oral homework was to practice saying: Hoy es martes el 14 de febrero de 2017 y Feliz Día de San Valentín.
