This Halloween Vocabulary Rally for English and Spanish learners. The Rally has five stations in which the kids will test their teamwork and Spanish language skills (handouts and clues are provided). This Rally will focus on identifying key vocabulary in each station (Halloween related). In the last station, participants will use their knowledge, five senses, and quick thinking to earn double points for their teams. Children will use vocabulary from the other stations to create a short story. The winning team receives a Halloween trophy and a treat basket to share.
Participants will play games, introduce themselves in Spanish, and taste authentic Hispanic Food
Learning a language requires practice, exposure, and discipline. We have started a series of events to keep you engaged. Among our cultural activities and immersion events, we bring to you a Family Day. This meetup social takes place every Spring on Saturday. The goal of the event is to bring together English and Spanish learners to facilitate language exposure, meet other learners, and play games in a relaxed environment with family and friends. Participants will introduce themselves in Spanish and/or English. They will create groups to play charades, toss the cone, and a KLOO Game using clues provided. Participants will also enjoy some authentic Hispanic food.
At the end of these activities, participants will have introduced themselves, practiced vocabulary, and partnered with another learner to continue practicing their Spanish or English conversation skills.
The event will be hosted at a park (weather permitting).
