The latest Spanish project with the 1st and 2nd grades is making a calendar for February. The calendar has the month and days of the week labeled in Spanish.

I went through the months and days of the week with the kids and we made hand signals for the days of the week. Next, We discussed the kinds of weather in February and themes that we could draw and label in Spanish. Valentine’s Day and a snowy playground scene were the most popular. If students wanted to label something that we hadn’t talked about, like puppies or hockey practice or a sibling’s birthday, I wrote the translation on the board.
