Spanish 1 Agenda

Weeks 28-29

April 4 - April 15

We are beginning unit 4: Mi familia

There will be LOADS of notetaking this week as we get the basics for the unit. By Friday we will be working on our family tree (real or made-up).

Next week we will add homes/living situations. We will begin reading stories, infographics, and or websites and listening to recordings or watching videos that will give us a better understanding of what home life is like in the Spanish-speaking world.

I'm not certain yet when the next assessment will be, but we should have one at the end of next week or early the following week.

Below are some videos that will be a good review (and some introduction) to many of the grammatical concepts that we will use this unit.

By the end of the unit, students will be able to agree with the following statements:

  • I can describe and compare my family unit, living arrangements, and acceptable customs with those of other cultures.
  • I can describe and compare my chores and activities at home with those of other cultures
  • I can understand input about and compare celebrations and special events in my local and global communities.


Students will keep considering these questions.

• How does my life at home compare to life in a Spanish speaking country? What factors does someone consider when choosing a place to live?

• How do my celebrations compare with celebrations in my local and global communities?
