6th Grade Spanish Curriculum 2015/2016:
The 2015-2016 school year has given the sixth grade an opportunity to collaborate more within the Spanish Department. This year’s structure allowed students to be exposed to two teaching styles in order to increase their exposure to the language. Students were presented with more communication in the language using comprehensible input and lots of repetition. In the first semester (plus) the students were split into two classes that spent some time with each teacher before switching to the other. With Ms. Velasco, students used projects to integrate grammar and vocabulary. With Mr. Garcia, students used reading and storytelling to increase reading comprehension and learn new vocabulary structures.
Now that all students have had an opportunity to work with both teachers, here is what’s coming up next for your 6th grader in Spanish: The remainder of this semester will be used to prepare students as we transition into a new book curriculum next year. We will be using Español Santinalla, which is divided into book A and book B. Students will finish the semester with their original X Y class. This is the class they have officially on their schedule. Both classes will use parts of book A to prepare students to start with book B in the fall of 7th grade. If you have any questions, or would like to know more about the program, please feel free to contact Mr. Garcia email@example.com or Ms. Velasco firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring Conference's are Upon us
There will be ONE day for Spring Conferences for middle school students and parents (grades 5-8), however these are defined as NEED based. Sign Ups will be made available online two weeks before the date.
Teachers in all subject areas (and advisory) will be available for brief 10 minute appointments, but will not be able to meet with every parent as they did in the fall due to time and numbers.
