Hola a todo(a)s!
After two weeks of intense 30-minute work sessions, I'm very proud & happy to share the ending result of our project on building a small city. By a majority of votes, la ciudad was named: Hollywood.
Along the way, we reviewed vocabulary on different places of the community such as: el hospital, la panaderia, el parque, la estacion de bomberos, etc. We also introduced the unit on occupations, which will continue into next week when we do our review on articles: la enfermera, el cocinero, la policia, etc. All of the following ideas you'll see came from those little curious & creative minds:
|La jugueteria (toy store) by Ken & El restaurante by Alee|
|Tyler helping to write the ocupaciones and the lugar (place) where they work|
|The pieces of clay on the road are not accidental. They are either: carros (cars) or estatuas .|
|Tyler made a big pancake-parking lot for La panaderia (bakery)|
|Their creativity goes to their smallest details: a football made out of clay on top of el estadio|
|Even though, we introduced a lot of vocabulary during the project,|
making the signs helped them to associate the names
|A better view of una estatua (on the right) & extra decoration for la panaderia. Do you see the croissants on the roof?|
|The tower for UCD implied some problem-solving skills for Luca because he had to figure out how to stand it without letting it fall.|
|Madi was very creative on making libros (books) para la biblioteca (library).|
|Sean also inspired us with his passion for sports. He created a very detail estadio with a score board and everything! Of course, you can tell what's his favorite team by looking at the score he wrote...|
|Ken has one of the greatest memories, I've ever seen! Here, he's helping us to review the vocabulary.|
|Taking a break from building to review the vocabulary|
|Building, building, building!|
Alee designed the sign for the name of our ciudad: Hollywood. See the final result in the final picture.

|The best part of projects: working as a team!|
