Señora Mills’ Spanish 1 Tigers
Weekly Update 9/28/2015
We're continuing to learn how to manipulate the language (what little we know). This is proving a little challenging for most students (in English and in Spanish). We are learning about subject pronouns (I, you, he, she, we, they, etc.) and how to conjugate the verb ser according to the subject pronoun. Students are having difficulty linking the idea that if I am talking ABOUT Maria and Josefina, I would use the pronoun they (or ellas in Spanish!). Beyond that, we are learning that to say, "They are..." we would say "Ellas son..."
We are also learning the countries and capitals of Central and South America. The videos are below! Enjoy!
- Pronouns: I, you, he, she, we, and they
- Our 1st verb: ser
- Spanish-speaking countries and capitals
- Numbers - Coming soon!
- Time - Coming soon!
Your student needs to study these words 5 minutes each day!

A Little About Señora Mills
I have two Bachelor's degrees--one in Journalism from the University of Georgia and one in Spanish Education from Missouri Western State University. I also have my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I went back to school to become a Spanish teacher because I had met so many awesome people from all over the world, and I wanted to positively impact others to seek out global experiences. Travel is my passion, and I love to discover and experience cultures different than my own.
I have two beautiful children, a patient husband, and two crazy cats. When I'm not teaching, you can find me cheering on my kids in their many activities--from ice hockey to dancing to soccer.
