EDISON, NJ-- Lower School Spanish students in the second, fourth and fifth grade classes were assigned to report the local weather as an opportunity to use their Spanish in a real life situation and for them to review what they had studied in previous years. 

The young weather reporters embraced this new opportunity to provide information including the day, season, temperature and weather conditions just outside their windows at home. Their entertaining updates allowed everyone to see how much snow fell in different areas during the Feb. 1 storm. The second grade used Seesaw and the fourth and fifth graders used Flipgrid to submit their reports.
