World Languages & Cultures ST. PAUL CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
The third quarter has come to a close for our World Languages & Cultures classes. Students studied about a third country and a fourth country in our class rotation. (Please refer to the included schedule.) These students experienced hands-on learning activities that included crafts, puppets, stories, music, manipulatives, costumes, and much more. We hope the pictures in this newsletter show some of the learning and fun that happened in each classroom. For five weeks the bulletin board next to the office in McGuffey Hall will be dedicated to each of the five countries we are covering this year (Mexico, Japan, Kenya, Brazil, and China.) Please stop by and find information about each country, student work, and pictures.
