Everyone knows that leprechauns love gold. First-grade students at the School of Dual Language created colorful and decorative traps to catch the leprechaun using gold coins, rainbows, four leaf clovers and other objects. While it appears the leprechaun was once again too smart to be caught, this was a fun STEM project for the students and their families.
Third through fifth graders were singing and dancing as Andres Salguero and Christina performed at the School of Dual Language during a morning assembly on March 8. Even the teachers were dancing as the Latin Grammy-winning music duo provided lessons through music. Their songs provided a fun and creative way for the students to learn about North, Central, and South America and the Caribbean. They spoke and sang in English, Spanish and regularly used sign language. Whatever the language, their performance was full of fun for everyone.
Ms. Guerrero’s fifth-grade class at the School of Dual Language had their first guitar lesson on Monday. Music teacher Ms. Schaefges taught them how to remember the standard tuning of the guitar (EADGBE) by teaching them the phrase: Every Amateur Does Get Better Eventually. She taught them how to strum and play chords. The students had fun as they familiarized themselves with a new instrument.
The School of Dual Language’s February SOAR assembly focused on Kindness Week. Ms. Guerrero’s fifth grade class was the winner of the “SOARing Eagle” trophy for the month of February. View the presentation.
