Teacher Eileen Cellucci’s second grade students participate in Spanish class with teacher Maggie Sears. The students have been learning about the life cycle of a butterfly in their regular classes, therefore Sears incorporated it into their Spanish class. The kids first colored pictures that showed the different stages of the cycle with Spanish captions. After they finished, they performed a song and dance showing the life of a butterfly starting as a caterpillar. As said by student Courtney Dellicker, “Mariposa is Spanish for butterfly.”
