La Clase de la Señora Graham

Columbia Elementary
Spanish Newsletter
January 2017

Welcome back!  I hope everyone had a great break.  We started our semester with a snowy theme.  My friends, Olaf and Frosty, came to class with me.  (Alabama is no place for a snowman!  Olaf and Frosty are feeling the heat!) In class we sang "Mi Hombre de Nieve" which is a song about a snowman and set to the tune of Frosty the Snowman.  We practiced some vocabulary associated with the snowman song.  Students dressed me up like a snowman.  After they had practiced putting a "sombrero" on my head, "una bufanda" around my neck,  and "los guantes" on my hands they dressed Olaf.  Olaf was "triste" because he didn't have "un sombrero", "los guantes", or "una bufanda".  They found it very funny because the hat, scarf, and gloves were way too big for little Olaf.  Of course, we did all of this in Spanish which was very exciting for Señora Jones.  

Looking ahead we will be continuing our snowman unit with the Kindergarten,  First graders and second graders will be learning body parts and reading the book "Fuera de Aquí, Horrible Monstruo Verde" by Ed Emberly.

I will be at Multicultural night on February 13th with my friend, Alfa.  Alfa is a burro and he helps his friend, Luis Soriano Bohorquez, deliver books to children in remote areas in Columbia.  Their name for their program is the  Biblioburro. If you click on the link you will see a short youtube video about their program.  I thought it was really inspiring.  Señor Soriano Bohorquez could not make Multicultural night but Alfa will be there!  Alfa and I will  have "books" in Spanish to hand out.  Please stop by to say "hola" to us and get "un libro". We will be in the Kindergarten hallway.  

Stay warm!  No, wait it's in the 60s right now...stay cool!  Or it could be cold again by the time you read this...who knows?  Whatever the weather...your students are awesome and I am blessed to be their teacher!  Gracias.
