Grade 4 Spanish Pen Pals
Gillispie Grade 4 students spent an afternoon on the field with their Spanish pen pals from Stella Maris Academy!
Ms. Gersten and teachers from Stella Maris led the students in fun learning activities like musical chairs en Español, a Spanish vocabulary relay race, and Spanish Twister—mano derecha en color azul!
The students had a great time connecting with their pen pals and participating in a day of fun together.
At Gillispie School, we believe that learning is a journey in which children are active participants. We balance a child-centered approach that does not rush childhood with well-researched academic programs that demand higher level thinking. We focus on social-emotional learning that develops strength of character, kindness towards others, and openness to diverse ideas and cultures.
