BFA Fairfax: Sharing Spanish Stories

High School Spanish Novice students wrote simple children’s stories about an animal in Spanish as their culminating presentational writing assessment for Semester 1.

They had a fun time visiting Ms. Myers’ Grade 4 students and reading their animal stories to small groups of students.  They connected over excitement for the Spanish language during the visit.  They also were role models for the younger students.
