Monticello Elementary Students Earn Trip to El Cazador for their Excellence in Spanish Studies

Monticello Elementary students are fortunate to be able to study the Spanish language in third, fourth and fifth grades. During the special class, they have access to the Voces Spanish etextbook which helps them study on a global basis.
There was a competition for a trip to El Cazador that began at the beginning of the school year and ran through April 30th. The competition was based upon the number of PLVs (phrases, letters, and vocabulary) that the students got correct while logged into their etextbook. The top ten students on April 30th won a trip to the restaurant. Congratulations to Nathanael Wright who took first place this year and last year. “The etextbook enables students to hear authentic Spanish conversations,” said Monticello Elementary Spanish Teacher Paron Creekmore. “It also gives them the opportunity
to explore each of the Spanish speaking countries and learn facts about them, while hearing from natives of each particular country.”
Creekmore added, “The students really enjoy the panorama portion of the book that allows them to look around a specific location within each country.”
