Thanksgiving

Each year Thanksgiving is celebrated the fourth Thursday of November. This year Thanksgiving was on November 24th, 2016.

Students of 1, 2, and 3 created a drawing of a turkey using their hands. They traced their hand on white paper to make the turkey. Next, they learned about the word thankful and brainstormed what they were thankful for. For example: family, friends, food, school. On the body of the turkey drawing the students wrote the word thankful, and on the finger or feathers of the turkey the students wrote 4 words they were thankful for.

Students of 4, 5, and 6 were shown a powerpoint created by Alice about Thanksgiving. While watching the powerpoint the students learned about traditional foods, and traditons of Thanksgiving in the United States. After the powerpoint the students learned about the phrase, I am thankfor for, and brainstormed what they were thankful for.

On the body of the turkey the students wrote I am thankfor for... and on the feather they wrote words they were thankfulful.

PEACE DAY

El Día de la Paz (Peace Day) is celebrated in Spain on the 30th of January. While this day was celebrated throughout the school, the English department conducted a special project of its own. Students made peace badges during arts and crafts class to wear on Peace Day. They created new peace symbols, drew them on their badges, and then decorated them with permanent markers. Students also learned new words related to peace such as harmony, friendship, love, and freedom.   
This project was planned and led by Dolores García Rodríguez, English teacher.

WHAT ARE YOU THANKFUL FOR?

Thanksgiving is celebrated in the U.S. every year on the fourth Thursday in November. This year students made "hand turkeys", a classic Thanksgiving craft. Some students made classic "hand turkeys" while others chose to make "hand trees". First students traced their hands on a piece of paper. In the center of the hand they wrote, "I'm thankful for" and then wrote one thing on each finger for which they were thankful. Examples included "family", "friends", "peace", and "love". Then students either decorated each finger with different color feathers, if they made a turkey, or leaves, if they made a tree. Thanksgiving is a time for us to remember what we are thankful for and this activity helped students to do just that. Students then displayed their finished turkeys and trees in the school hallway. 
This project was planned and led by Dolores García Rodríguez, English teacher, and Kristen Fraley, Language Assistant.

CELEBRATING HALLOWEEN

Halloween takes place every year on October 31st. This year students participated in a “hands-on” Halloween learning experience. They listened to a tale called “Poor Joe”, which tells the story of a man named Joe who leaves his house on Halloween night. During the story, a goblin begins to steal different parts of Joe’s body until he is left with nothing but a beating heart. After each part of the story is read, a box containing the “body part” that Joe has just lost is passed around the classroom. Inside the boxes were spaghetti for brains, carrots for toes, red peppers for ears, and peeled frozen grapes for eyes. When touched without looking these different foods actually feel like the body parts they represent! During this activity students were able to learn new vocabulary words all while having a bit of scary Halloween fun.

 

This project was planned and led by Dolores García Rodríguez, English teacher, and Kristen Fraley, Language Assistant.

GUY FAWKES NIGHT

Guy Fawkes Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Day, Bonfire Night and Firework Night, is an annual commemoration observed on November 5th, primarily in Great Britain. Its history begins with the events of November 5th, 1605, when Guy Fawkes, a member of the Gunpowder Plot, was arrested while guarding explosives the plotters had placed beneath the House of Lords. Celebrating the fact that King James I had survived the attempt on his life, people lit bonfires around London, and months later the introduction of the Observance of 5th November Act enforced an annual public day of thanksgiving for the plot's failure.

This project was planned and led by Dolores García Rodríguez, English teacher.
