Tareas de Febrero

Buenos días padres y estudiantes,

in February the semester classes will learn about clothing, weather, seasons, birthdays and holidays. The students will be able to say what they are wearing, their birthdays, favorite seasons and holidays in Spanish. They will take test 2 before the winter break.

My yearlong I classes are learning about family relationships, descriptions and the verb TENER (to have) to describe age, needs or possession in Spanish. They will take a test on Unit 3 before the winter break.

My yearlong II class is learning about activities that people do on vacation, the present progressive and direct object pronouns in Spanish. They will take a test on Unit 5 before the winter break.

Hasta el lunes,

tarea y prueba de enero

Buenos dias padres y estudiantes,

for the last week of January the semester classes will learn about numbers and cognates. The students will also take their first test for Spanish class which includes the following topics: greetings, commands, alphabet, colors, shapes, numbers 0-20, and cognates.

My yearlong classes will start chapter II of “Pobre Ana” with a focus on reading and listening comprehension. The students in my Yearlong I classes are learning about family and relationships from chapter III of the textbook Descubre. The students in my Yearlong II class will learn about travel and vacation from chapter V of the textbook Descubre.

Adios y hasta el lunes!

la tarea de enero

Buenas tardes padres y estudiantes,

the first two weeks of enero (January) my semester classes are learning the Spanish alphabet sounds, greetings/goodbyes and commands; furthermore, we are learning about how people greet each other in different Spanish-speaking countries through cultural videos and reading activities.

My yearlong classes are complementing the grammar topics of the textbook Descubre  with a novel, “Pobre Ana”, that we are reading in the class. I encourage my yearlong students to buy this simple and short novel by Blaine Ray, as it will help improve reading and comprehension of the language.

Enjoy the long weekend and nos vemos el martes!

la tarea de diciembre

Buenas tardes padres y estudiantes,

this month the semester classes are learning about the culture and geography of Spanish-speaking countries around the world. They will have a final project about this unit. The students will make a powerpoint about a country of their choice. Furthermore,  rubric will be given in class this Monday and also the students can review the topic with the PPT attached to this post.

My yearlong I students are also working on a project. As we learned the verbs SER y ESTAR (to be), they are creating a song with lyrics in Spanish about these two verbs.

Tareas de Noviembre

Hola padres y estudiantes,

for this week I would like for all my students to practice (in writing and speaking) the topics learned by writing 3 sentences in Spanish about the weather, seasons and clothing for my semester classes; for my yearlong I classes to describe what they did this weekend using the AR verbs; and for my yearlong II class to describe their weekend using the AR-ER-IR verbs. During the week I will ask questions in the class about this activity.

Gracias y hasta el lunes!

Dia de los muertos

Buenas tardes padres y estudiantes,

as we approach the holiday “Dia de los Muertos” we must recognize the symbols and meaning of the Day of the Dead which must not be confused with Halloween. I encourage the students to research similarities and differences between the two holidays and get ready to discuss them in class. Also, we will make Calaveras masks, watch videos and read stories about the Day of the Dead, and mostly learn many vocabulary words related to it.
