Spanish WSHS students make books for students in Nicaragua | Local


Winona Public Schools

Students in a Spanish class at Winona Senior High School carried on the tradition of sharing their work with children in Central America.

Spanish 4 students, taught by Susan Larsen, have written 13 books to share with school-aged children in Matagalpa, Nicaragua, as well as elementary school students from public schools in the Winona area as part of the Ríos Spanish immersion program.

Students also read each book aloud using Flipgrid, which is shared with students in the Ríos program.

This tradition started in the 2014-2015 school year and the first books were sent to Nicaragua in 2015. A total of 184 books have been produced and shared by Spanish WSHS students since then.

The project continues to enrich the WSHS curriculum while providing an enriching and authentic experience for students.
