In Spanish class during the month of October we will learn to compliment others, say words related to Halloween such as typical vocabulary, costumes and going "Trick-or-Treating". We'll also learn the song "Itsy, Bitsy Spider". Other themes that we may cover are "The Family" "Numbers" and "Classroom Objects."
