Puerto Rico (La Isla del Encanto) The Enchanted Island

Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

Today, we had a visitor from Puerto Rico. Senorita Casanova spoke to Rooms 102 and 206 about her country. She introduced them to several instruments from the famous song Guantamanera. After the students played the Puerto Rican instruments: el guiro, las maracas y palitos, Senorita Casanova taught them how to dance the salsa. I will upload a video of the salsa dancers soon.
