Mrs. Jacobson challenges her Spanish students to communicate in Spanish in a creative, practical or thoughtful manner. Just before our Thanksgiving recess, Mrs. Jacobson continued an annual project that has brightened the spirits of so many in our learning community!
The assignment given to the students was to write a few sentences (in Spanish) about an adult employee for whom they are thankful. Mrs. Jacobson made sure the students considered not just teachers, but the many other adults working in the building: monitors, cafeteria aides, custodians, bus drivers and the like. The sentences of thanks were written on colorful paper and then placed on a bulletin board in the school.
The adults in the building LOVE these notes! Many of them mentioned these notes during the Wednesday before the Thanksgiving break, inevitably describing how touched they were by the words written by the students.
This was a wonderful act of gratefulness to our community!
Thanks to Mrs. Jacobson for having the students complete a project that helps them practice their Spanish while brightening the spirits of so many in our school!
