2nd Grade Spanish

November 10, 2020 | Chris Gasca

In Spanish Class we have been having so much fun! Students are often sad when the class is over.

We have been labeling the classroom, going over our colors, numbers, and playing many games in Español. One of the most popular games is called “7 Palabras” ( 7 words). In this game, the student closes their eyes and needs to be able to follow directions in Spanish in order to navigate their way through the classroom and finally sit down on a chair. Being silly and having fun is one of the most important things in the Spanish classroom. The more fun they have, the more their attention is on what is being taught. The more their attention is on the lesson, the more they are going to learn!

We have also read different books. As time goes on we will be increasing the difficulty of the reading material. Lately, the most exciting thing about Spanish class is the new section that we will be working on. We will be having a story time where everyone will have a job in the story. This will include students acting out really silly and fun story lines. There will be many tools and props that the students will learn to use to make the story more exciting.

Mr. Gasca saw firsthand the love, Godly character, and incredible skill of MSS teachers. He joined the staff as a substitute teacher in 2016 and felt right at home. Today he's an Assistant Teacher in the Forest Class and works with second and third grade students. He loves spending time with children in the park where he has been known to be a fierce competitor in foot races and team sports. He thoroughly enjoys building relationships with MSS students, especially learning beside them and helping them grow in character and self esteem. Whether through academics, extracurricular activities, or providing emotional support, Mr. Gasca always looks for the best way to invest in every single student.
