Welcome to our first Virtual Friday Assembly.Uploaded Apr 24, 2020
Welcome to our 2nd Virtual Friday Assembly. Great job everyone. Have a great weekend.
Please join us for our Virtual Assembly! This week we have a very packed agenda! I didn't even have time to add my intros to each of the performances! So here is what I would have said:
"We begin with the song Fronteras. Maestra Sandoval’s class was asked to send a video of themselves doing their favorite activity, to match the lyrics of the song Frontera (Borders, in English). The words are beautiful in Spanish and in English they translate just as beautifully: "Hope is with us, with it nothing can stop us I go, holding your hand you go, holding mine, there is nothing to fear."
This song is followed by the Castro Family, watch Zoe, Galilea and Abuelita Castro, share with you a traditional folkoric song: Cielito Lindo.
Maestra Marin and her puppet Pedro follow with a presentaiton on Dia de Los Muertos. In the presentation you will also receive a bilingual lesson, so please play close attention and practice along: see how many words you can learn.
Next, we have a lesson celebrating baseball stars from the Dominican Republic. First grader Foster Batista, shares interesing stats and great baseball facts!
We follow with an art appreciation lesson delivered by two fourth graders, Olivia Mendoza and Lucia Mancera Rodriguez . They present a lesson on Frida Kahlo, first in Spanish and then in English. If you don’t speak Spanish, see if you can pick up some words that might sound like the English word, these are called cognates. You’ll hear how much money she made on the sale of her paintings; you’ll hear she was in 'un accidente' which means an accident.; but what other words can you figure out?
After the lesson is given in Spanish it will also be delivered in English. We end our assembly with a song from Maestra Howard’s class. They are signing Resistre.
Please enjoy the assembly and have a great week and weekend!
