Cultural, Linguistic, Interdisciplinary & Community Experience for Spanish AP Students and High School 101
By: Juanjo Vazquez-Caballero
Spanish Honor Society in collaboration with Reynolds’ Subaru did a project in September with a elementary school in New Britain (Fair Haven School). Izzy Reynolds kept the connection with the elementary school teacher in order to continue collaborating with the students. She had the great idea of sending holiday cards. I contacted Ms. Traver and her students in the class High School 101 designed attractive cards for 4th graders with winter and Christmas decorations. Since we were learning and practicing the subjuntive, students wrote an interpersonal writing card using the subjuntive. All the AP students wrote seven to nine beautiful wishes and desires for the students showing empathy, love and compassion.
Spanish NHS 22-23 Spanish/ Hybrid Tradition
It’s the Three Kings, or Reyes Magos (Melchior, Gaspar and Baltazar), who bring children their gifts in Spain, not Santa Claus (although he is becoming more popular now, too) on January 6, not Christmas Day. On the night of January 5, the Kings parade through the towns across the country with their entourage of helpers, animals and elaborate floats, throwing sweets out for the children. When the kids return home, they leave out their shoes for the Kings to fill with presents overnight.
At the National Spanish Honor Society, we created a new tradition in which students leave their shoes and if they were good members, they will receive candies (if they didn’t participate over the year, they will get coal). We are also aware of the Secret Santa so students brought a secret present for a friend. It was a nice way to finish the year.
