Within the bilingual Spanish curriculum of 1st and 2nd grades, elementary Spanish teachers will work with teaching artists from Teatro del Pueblo theater company to guide students as they choose from several Spanish language books revolving around the theme of peace. Students will then create and perform their very own play in Spanish, assisted by the theater company’s native speakers, and complete with costumes and props.
A grand performance is scheduled for Alice Smith’s annual Heritage Festival in March, with others to be determined. Students will become immersed in Spanish vocabulary, Latino culture, the joy of performance art, and the theme of peace.
