The Italian STEAM class for children at Mays Chapel Elementary is going great! We had a lesson on cloth and Euro; the children practiced and collaborated with WRITING words and FULL SENTENCES IN ITALIAN! See them here all in action! They also learn how to negotiate in Italian and also practiced with the Euro and cloth vocabulary. This week we will talk about planets and the solar system and make HOMEMADE GNOCCHI!!
We had a blast last week as we finished the beginning levels classes and celebrated the students' achievement with a delicious potluck with excellent Italian food! Grazie a tutti gli studenti! Can't wait to see you all in the NEXT LEVEL AFTER EASTER!
