This is a website that has electronic flashcards and memorization games. Once on Quizlet.com students can type in sraruizwiley in the search and that will bring up all our material.

How can I help my student with Spanish class?

  • Visit my website to see daily agendas.
  • Practice flash cards with them.
  • Ask them to see their homework.
  • Ask them to see their stamp sheet. It shows what skills they have been able to produce verbally from memory and will need to do before the end of the grading period.
  • Review their notes with them.

Donations

During the last week of school, to cap off the school year, I put together piñatas will all kinds of candy. We go out to the basketball courts and students get to break open the piñatas. In order for this happen, we need monetary donations to buy the piñatas and candy. Feel free to send a check made out to Wiley Middle School or cash with your students. Thank you for helping us celebrate their success during their first year of Spanish.
