Spanish Celebration

Third grade students took part in an Immigration Celebration in Spanish as a connection with the their recent amazing performances based on the history of immigration in the United States. This celebration was hosted for Giovana and Tiziana as part of our Spanish curriculum.

On Wednesday, students went and enjoyed a delicious lunch in TartAreperia Restaurant, a Venezuelan restaurant in Fishtown. The students practiced how to order their food in Spanish and had the opportunity to try rich Latin American flavors that was new for many of them. The following day, the students met Francois Zayas, a Cuban musician, who spoke about his experience as, an immigrant to the US from Cuba. He also explained about the maracas and timbal instruments that he plays.
