¡Hola! Me llamo Señora Ranney. Hello! My name is Mrs. Ranney.
Students grades K-8 see me for Spanish once a week in their classrooms; the best thing about my job is that I get to work with ALL of the students and staff! I grew up on a small town farm in Minnesota. During a summer job in high school, my world was broadened by the opportunity to work with several Latinas. They inspired in me the desire to learn Spanish. During college, I spent a semester living with host families in Mexico, Argentina and Spain, and attending classes. I am excited to help Erie Rise students explore Spanish language and culture, helping them gain appreciation for diversity and realize the importance of being able to relate to and communicate with a variety of people.
“Las chicas de Kindergarten” had a great Spanish class this week practicing Spanish colors and counting items up to 10. The students played a matching card game with “amigas” to review colors, and then each received a small bag of “dulces/sweets” (m&ms) to count and sort by Spanish color and number.
Kindergartners have also enjoyed the counting “monos”/monkeys as we have used the 5 Little Monkeys story song during our practice.
Felicidades-Congratulations, Q2 Top Check Earners! The following students received a $2 coupon to the book fair in recognition for their example and positive participation in Art, Music, Spanish and Physical Education during Quarter 2. Happy Reading, and keep up your good work!
