Feria de las lenguas y las culturas

We attended the Feria de las lenguas y las culturas in Jerez de la Frontera. We were able to listen to presentors and see what other schools do in their bilingual programs. We also had our own booth to share what we do at Princípe Felipe.

Easter project (5 year-olds, grades 1st 'bilingual group' and 2nd).

                                                                Happy Easter 2011!!!

We did a variety of Easter activities with the 5 year old class and first grade students. Each student in both classes helped paint a giant Easter Egg that says, "Happy Easter 2011" and is hanging in the entryway of the school. The first grade students learned some basic vocabulary (Easter basket, Easter egg, Easter Bunny, bow, chick, Easter egg hunt, and happy Easter) and then colored and assembled a paper Easter basket filled with eggs, a chick, and a bunny. After the craft, they went outside and participated in an Easter egg hunt. Fifteen paper Easter eggs had been colored, laminated, and then hid outside on the patio. The students were given instructions to search for the hidden eggs. After the students successfully found all 15 of the eggs, they were
given a chocolate egg.

In this video you will learn how to dye eggs.

Pancake Day (1st grade bilingual group).

Pancake Day lined up perfectly with the end of our Science Unit on Food. We were also able to use the opportunity for parent involvement. One of the mothers made all of the pancakes for the students after she was given the materials. 

Here is a short video to learn how to make pancakes if you do not have a pancake mix out of a box: Pancake Video
