Exeter-Milligan Update: Spanish Notes

Spanish Notes by Haley Stutzman, E-M Spanish Instructor

¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! What a busy year we have had so far! This last week in Spanish 1 we learned some important grammar concepts as well as information about an important holiday in Mexico. The first few days of the week we were learning the names of different places or businesses around town and giving locations. We did a project where the students made their own map of a town. On Thursday, we spent the day learning about El Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), which takes place in Mexico on November 1st and 2nd and celebrates relatives and friends that have passed away. Aside from learning about the holiday, I also brought some native candy from Mexico for the students to try while they were working with the new holiday vocabulary. The candy I brought was a hard candy with a chili powder filling. Obviously, it was very different than our candy here in the United States. A fun ending to a busy week!
