BACK TO SCHOOL

GRADES 1 & 2: How exciting! We will be learning very basic vocabulary through songs and role play. We are currently learning colors, shapes and numbers. Students are also learning how to greet each other. They learned a song called "Buenos Dias". 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 & 8TH GRADE: In Spanish 7 and 8, students will learn the equivalent of 9th grade Spanish combined. We will be laying the groundwork for skills required at the high school level. Grammar, pronunciation as well as culture will be discussed and practiced. Both grades have been assigned textbooks and workbooks. They are responsible for the condition of both books. They may write in the workbook but NOT in the textbook.
7th grade is using "¿Cómo Te Va?" Book A  (Green Book)
8th grade is using "¿Cómo Te Va?" Book B  (Blue Book)


I am looking forward to a great year of learning.
WELCOME BACK
