Fun with Spanish at Quaker Ridge


Quaker Ridge fourth graders in Aimee Lepe's Spanish class improved their language skills by playing a board game she created for them. In this game, based the popular board game, Clue, students solve the mystery of which school employee hid one of their things in one of the rooms in the school. The game board has photos of actual Quaker Ridge rooms, and cards with actual teachers and administrators. The game engages the children in critical thinking, active listening and speaking - all in Español!  Some children have even learned how to bluff in Spanish!
