During hybrid or distance learning, check See Saw for activities.
Second grade classes review and continue to build upon all areas studied in first grade Spanish, because language learning takes place over many years with constant reinforcement. Second graders also learn new topics and engage in activities like identifying and labeling the objects in the classroom such as:
the table = la mesa
the chair = la silla
the backpacks = las mochilas
the chalkboard = la pizarra (el pizarrón)
the window = la ventana
the flag = la bandera
the door = la puerta
the desk = el escritorio
Second graders also learn how to describe themselves using adjectives, say “I have” (yo tengo) and “I am” (yo soy), and learn the Spanish names of the continents to reinforce the Social Studies curriculum. The Science curriculum is reinforced with the names of planets as well as the sun, el sol and the moon, la luna. Second graders draw and label family trees in Spanish during a unit that expands upon family words learned the previous year.
