All grade levels are working together to make our oruga as long as possible! What is an oruga you might ask? It is a caterpillar! The oruga's body is made of Spanish words, and continues to grow as our knowledge of Spanish grows! Each grade level has a certain color, kindergarten rojo, 1st grade anaranjado, 2nd grade amarillo, 3rd grade verde, and 4th grade azul. Students can add Spanish words by following the pattern, whatever letter the word ends with the next word must begin with that letter. For example, abril ends with the letter l so the next word must start with letter l, lunes. If students think of the word, they get to illustrate it! Classes look forward to seeing how much the oruga "grew" when they come in.
