FLES-ing Their Language Muscles at McKenna


To practice their Spanish language skills, fifth graders at McKenna Elementary School played a Jeopardy-style trivia game. Foreign Language in the Elementary Schools teacher Alexis Porcelli created the game with four categories – community, personality traits, physical traits and professions – to help students improve their Spanish vocabulary. Students in grades 3-5 in Massapequa’s six elementary schools have FLES instruction twice a week.
