Final days of school

Below are a few pictures from the last couple days of school. Since I wanted to do something fun with the kids we played Lotería in all of my classes. Lotería is a Mexican bingo game that uses pictures instead of numbers and letters. The kids all recognized the game since we also played it for my birthday. When I called out each card, I first called out the word in English and then in Spanish. The kids knew several of the words I called out in English. It was fun when they recognized the words in English. To make sure everyone would win I called out all the cards. After each kid won I gave them a piece of candy. It was a lot of fun! I love my students!

Sounds like a great day. The kids love being with you. I think you have taught them so much. You should be very proud.
