El Otoño (Autumn)

GRADES 1 & 2: How exciting! We will be learning very basic vocabulary through songs and role play. We are currently learning Body Parts and the Alphabet in Spanish. They learned an alphabet song as well as a song about Days of the Week. I am looking forward to sharing my love of the Spanish language with your children.

GRADES 3: Our third graders will be learning very basic vocabulary through songs and role play. Students are currently learning colors, shapes, numbers and greetings. Students role play to demonstrate the greetings and are actively engaged. In addition, we will be learning practical phrases to build confidence as they learn to appreciate the Spanish language.

GRADE 4: In the 4th grade, we will learn practical phrases and vocabulary through songs, role play and visual imagery. We will introduce Hispanic heritage as well as geography as a way of making students appreciate the Spanish language. Colors, numbers, simple math, time telling, and greetings will be taught this trimester.

GRADE 5:
We will begin the year with a review of previous vocabulary. Through role play, visual imagery and practice, students will build confidence as they improve their language skills. Hispanic heritage and geography will be introduced as a way of making students appreciate the Spanish language. Students will review numbers, greetings, phrases, and basic vocabulary. We will be learning time telling and foods this trimester


GRADE 6: Students in 6th grade will review previous vocabulary. We will focus on grammar as a way to improve language skills. Hispanic heritage and geography will be introduced as a way of making students appreciate the Spanish language. We will be working from the textbook and workbook called "¿Cómo Te Va?" Intro (Red Book). They are responsible for both books. They may write in the workbook but NOT in the textbook.

GRADE 7: Students are learning how to tell time in Spanish.They will learn how to ask the time and respond through use of digital and analog clocks. We will be using our textbooks and workbooks for practice as well as use of Smart Board for practice activities.

8TH GRADE: Students are learning to use "question words" and form responses. We use our textbook and workbook to practice building our skills. Smart Board activities will be used to give students practical experience in the target language.





Have a wonderful "otoño" (Autumn).
