Where curiosity and confidence thrive.

Hispanic Heritage Month

Señor Canales and Señora Sheehan, Spanish Teachers

Since September 15th, the World Language Department has been celebrating Hispanic Heritage month in its Spanish language classes.

Each Spanish class in The Woods' upper school has worked on an assigned special project in order to enrich their knowledge of the Hispanic world and the importance of the Spanish language. At the same time, students were able to celebrate the diversity of students at the Woods Academy since many of them share ancestry from Spanish speaking countries. These students were so excited to share their knowledge with their classmates.

These are some examples of the projects done by the students:

 

7th Grade

Each student in 7th grade chose an important Hispanic person and they presented their achievements in class. Their motivation to learn from great characters cannot be described.

 

6th Grade

Each student had to investigate a Spanish speaking country and present it to the class. The students learned about important facts about those countries such as its population, capital cities, local products, flags, geographical locations, main dishes, flags, presidents, important people, and more interesting data.

5th Grade

Each student had to investigate one Spanish speaking country and present it to the class. The students learned about the countries’ currencies, capital cities, tourism, attractions, geographical locations, foods, flags, presidents, and important people.
