It’s the first week of kindergarten and students at Sherwood Forest are excited to learn! They quickly picked up Spanish in Mr. Lizano’s dual-language classroom and learned how to say words like hands, fingers, ears and listening. He spoke to them solely in Spanish and they were able to figure out how to introduce themselves by mimicking what he said.
The kindergarteners in Ms. Brooks’ class were learning sign language this week as some of their classmates sign regularly to communicate. Students from the PACIFIC program joined in and all of the kindergarteners were immersed in learning about the calendar and how to say the pledge of allegiance.
