World Language Week 2021

World Language Week Underway

Taking the best ideas from last year’s remote World Language Week, the Lower School has kicked off its annual World Language Week. 
World Language Week gives students a fun opportunity to learn Spanish, Chinese, and the rich culture surrounding these two languages through games, art, and cuisine. 

Apart from classroom activities, themes guide activities for each day of the week. See below for the full schedule of activities.
  • Monday: Book recommendations from Mrs. Harris, Srta. Morales, and Mrs. Gaines
  • Tuesday: Chinese meal pics and restaurant/market recommendations from Mrs. Harris
  • Wednesday: Family movie recommendations
  • Thursday: Latin American cuisine and restaurant/market recommendations from Srta. Morales
  • Friday: Recap of activities throughout the week

World Language teachers challenge students to find happy painted rocks around campus. A few classes will embark on a scavenger hunt, and all students can play World Language Week Bingo (card linked below).

Monday: Book Recommendations

Tuesday: Asian Food
