 Language Arts Students Create Sugar SkullsLanguage Arts Students Make Sugar Skulls and Write Stories

   Language Arts teacher Andrea Seminario and her students explored the differences and similarities between Halloween and Dia de los Muertos by writing compare and contrast essays. Ms. Seminario helped the students create Sugar Skulls out of sugar, meringue powder, and water.  Students were required to think of a theme and then creatively decorated their skulls and wrote short stories about them.  This activity allowed students to review text structures as well.  Students’ projects were judged on creativity.  






Students Practice Public Speaking While Learning New Vocabulary  Students Practice Public Speaking

   In Ms. Rowberry’s Language Arts classes, students have been practicing vocabulary and using introductory phrases.  Although public speaking can be unnerving, these students did not miss a beat!  Students had fun introducing themselves and their family as they practiced their new vocabulary words!
