Welcome back to school!

Third grade students have had a wonderful first week of Spanish.  They were excited to receive Spanish names for the first time.

This year, we are studying the country of Perú.  Students have learned the following:
- Perú is located in South America.  It is bordered by Colombia, Ecuador, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, and the Pacific Ocean.
- 32 million people live in Perú.
- The capital city is Lima.  10 million people live in Lima.
- Perú has three regions: la costa, la sierra (las montañas), and la selva.
- Lima is located on the coast.

We learned an authentic song about the three regions of Perú:
Yo tengo un país que se llama Perú
y tiene tres regiones para conocer

La costa tiene playas
La sierra montañas
La selva tiene mucha vegetación

Si quieres conocerlo
Tendrás que viajar
Y así conocerás a nuestra patria el Perú

Here is a link to the song on YouTube:
