When you take the perspectives and practices of two different cultures and blend them something amazingly beautiful and magical happens -El Día de los Muertos! PHS Spanish students have been experiencing different aspects of this Mexican holiday and have discovered the cultural significance of this celebration. Here are some of the artwork that students created, enjoy!
This week's celebration comes from Mrs. Castro's Spanish One students who are using their creativity to make personal connections with Spanish. They are describing themselves and others in Spanish as well as, asking questions and incorporating vocabulary through the verses of a rap song that they have composed. They are having fun, they are engaged, and they are learning Spanish. This is an amazing clip of them in action, enjoy!
Our childhood was a special time in which we learned a lot of life-skills and reached many milestones. Mrs. Ben Yahia's Spanish III-Honors students have been learning to talk about their childhood memories in Spanish and have created illustrations of their favorite memories and pastimes. Mrs. Ben Yahia's students share these memories with each other and with you. Enjoy!
I would like to take a moment to celebrate the Panthers in my Spanish 121 Dual Enrollment Class. These students have worked very hard, helped me overcome a learning curve with the digital aspect of this course, adjusted to the rigors of a college-level class taught at an abbreviated timeline, all while keeping up with their tasks, learning a lot of Spanish, and doing a fantastic job on their first course exam. But that's not all, they have helped each other along the way. They have built their own "little family" and a safe learning environment. This inaugural class of Dual Enrollment will be a tough act to follow! They rock! While this post doesn't showcase student work, it shares a story of triumph over all odds. I am so proud of these Pelion Panthers and look forward to their continued success. They are the true heroes!
Mrs. Castro's students share their daily routines with us in Spanish through creative and expressive visuals. It is so inspiring to see their work on display in our hall! They are amazing! Enjoy!
¡Feliz día de San Valentín, PHS! Spanish language students celebrated this special day by sharing original, hand-made valentines with their favorite teachers! Thank you PHS teachers for all that you do for us. You are amazing and we appreciate you! Enjoy your special messages from your students and have a Happy Valentines Day!
Our childhood is a special part of our lives that we think of fondly. As we grow, we hold on to those memories and cherish them. Students in Mrs. Ben's class share their favorite memories with you. These are inspiring stories that reveal so much about each student. So, get to know us a bit better, and above all, enjoy!
Our students are unique, beautiful and inspiring flowers in our learning family! Students in Mrs. Castro's classes express themselves, their identity and their interests. In this activity, each student created a unique flower that shines with character, personality and perspective. Enjoy!
