Fourth grade students have been very busy! We are doing a unit on places in the city. Students enjoyed learning words like: la panadería, la pastelería, la heladería, la zapatería, la papelería, and la librería. We used these words to create a story about an alien who comes to earth and is hungry. He goes to many different places and tries the food. Finally, he finds a food he likes!
A few weeks ago, we switched from paper homework to online homework. Students have given me overwhelmingly positive feedback about doing homework online! Many of them are also choosing to do the optional "extra challenge" homework each cycle.
