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.

latinex project

Happy fall break estudiantes! This message is for my Yearlong students. As we celebrate Hispanic Heritage month, during this break I asked to work on a cultural project about an important person (of your choice) from the Latin world. The directions for the project were given in the classroom; however, here is an explanation of what is expected from you poster (or powerpoint if you cannot purchase a poster):

Think of an important person that could be an artist, athlete, musician, actor, scientist, ect. Make sure you include the following information:

  1. their full name and a clear picture of he/she
  2. a small biography about them (either in English or Spanish or both)
  3. a description of them (in Spanish only)
  4. the reason why you choose this person (in English or Spanish or both)

Because it is a cultural project a full completion in the foreign language is not expected. However, try to avoid the use of google translate for long statements because it does not always offer accurate translation. Instead, try to use the vocabulary you are familiar with in the best way you can.

The project is DUE by October 2/3. It may be extended to October 5/6 for those students who were absent last week.


family tree project for semester classes

Happy fall break estudiantes! This message is for my 6th grade students and my 7th graders in the semester class. As I explained in the class, you must create a family tree poster using the rubric given and the vocabulary about family learned in the new unit. Make sure you follow the instructions of the rubric and that is all in Spanish! The project is DUE by October 5-6 depending on the schedule. However, for those of you who did not receive the rubric the due date is extended to October 12-13.  Nos vemos la pròxima semana!
