Do You Know Spanish?

If you don't know Spanish, you'll be very confused when all of the other second graders are sitting in a circle in the Spanish classroom, not touching the rug, and you're still sitting smack in the middle of the carpet. If you do know Spanish, you'll know what to do when Señor Cody says, "No toques la alfombra." Being able to speak Spanish means you'll know when we're going to get the ultimate prize - the *top sticker* from Señor Cody. You'll be able to write an entire play that takes place at la tienda de mascotas. Clearly knowing the Spanish language is the key to everything that happens in room 200.

On Friday, I popped into the Spanish classroom for a few minutes while my class was in there to grab a few kids to finish up some work. Milo came up to me, his brow furrowed, stuck on his script. "Do you know Spanish?" he asked. "Un poco," I replied, not sure my limited language skills would help him at all on his play. "I need to know how to type a lowercase letter" Milo explained as he led me over to his computer. I may not know much more than the basics in Spanish, but it was enough to get the caps lock key turned off!
