Greenwich High School Kids Create Song In Spanglish – Reading, Writing and Rhyming
This was definitely a challenge, and I mean that in a positive way. I actually didn’t sleep the night before worrying that I was going to fail miserably. How do you rhyme Spanish words when you don’t know Spanish? GULP. Mrs. Gordon’s class to the rescue!
This turned out so well! Why was I concerned in the least? This talented class of seventh graders was ready to write and help me through a crash course in “Spanglish” at the same time. Time now for the song about their escuela de mods (cool school).
This is the actual broadcast for you who missed it
Escuela de moda (a cool school)
Our school is cool
Jugamos pelota (we play ball) in the gym
Greenwich Brujas (Witches) always win
Whether on the field or in the gym
El fútbol (soccer), el béisbol (baseball)
El baloncesto (basketball) too
Bring the game
We’ll show what we can do!
Banda y coro (band and chorus) too
So many things that we can do
Our escuela (school) is the best
When it comes to taking tests
Conciertos (concerts) and Drama
And Spanglish is fun
This is what makes Greenwich #1
As we said before
This school is very cool
If you go to Greenwich
You certainly aren’t a fool
GCS IS THE BEST!
(I’m not going to fight that last line – You guys ARE the best. Thanks for letting me be a part of your class! (I should say -“Gracias!”
