Bienvenidos a 2020!
Welcome Back Todos!
It’s 2020! A new decade, new year, and fresh beginning to all things – how wonderful!
I look forward to a wonderful start with your students. We will continue to grow and embed ourselves in all things Spanish right away!
In Fifth Grade, we will spend the start of this year working on speaking the language. We will focus on different topics and ideas to help us expand our current vocabulary and enforce speaking in the target language.
In Sixth Grade, we will spend the start of this year working on refreshing and applying the present tense to speaking, listening, reading, and writing activities. The goal is for students to feel incredibly comfortable with every detail of the present tense prior to continuing in to seventh grade where the tenses pick up the pace quickly.
In Seventh Grade, we will spend the start of this year working on learning a new and challenging tense of the past in Spanish. We will practice speaking, writing and reading this tense, while also applying it to different traditions throughout Hispanic culture.
Finally, in Eighth Grade, we will spend the start of this year prepping and preparing in great detail for our Capstone Spain Trip in March. We will focus on the rich history and culture of Spain, practice speaking conversations specific to the host family lifestyle and University setting, understand the in’s and out’s of international travel, and read all about Cervantes, a well known Hispanic, so we are well informed for when we stay in his hometown during our trip.
And to think, this is just the start!
It’s looking like 2020 will be one of the best yet, and I can’t wait to help guide and teach your students each step of the way.
