In your child's Spanish special during the week of February 13-17 they used the website Duolingo to help them learn and practice Spanish. Duolingo is the world's largest online language learning platform. It turns language learning into a game to make it more fun and effective. Students can learn languages for free while earning points for correct answers, racing against the clock, and leveling up.
I am challenging students in grades 3, 4, and 5, as well as staff members, to a 6 Week Duolingo Challenge! Starting February 20 and going until March 31, I challenge students to practice their Spanish on Duolingo each day! I will give a prize to the TOP 3 students who have the most XP (what you get after completing a lesson) in EACH class after the challenge is done. This is a great way to encourage students to practice their Spanish speaking skills!
I will give students opportunities to use Duolingo in the classroom, but students should keep up with their Spanish lessons at home. They can download the Duolingo app for phones or tablets or access their account on the Duolingo website (www.duolingo.com).
Also, students should have headphones when doing Duolingo language exercise. IF YOU CHILD DOES NOT ALREADY HAVE HEADPHONES AT SCHOOL, PLEASE SEND THEM IN ASAP!
Thank you very much!If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks! Happy Duolingo-ing :)
