Spanish 1 Newsletter

Term 4


Dear Parents/Guardians,

As Term 3 comes to a close, I would like to share what students should look forward to in Spanish class during Term 4.

We will begin Term 4 with Chapter 4B - Los Pasatiempos. Throughout the course of the next few weeks, students will learn a variety of Spanish sport and pastime vocabulary words, how to conjugate stem-changing verbs in the present tense, and about leisure activities in Spanish-speaking countries. We will conclude our studies for the year with Chapter 5A - Family and Celebrations.

As we navigate through the remainder of the Spanish 1 curriculum, students will observe that the content will continue to be more challenging. With this increase in rigor, students should plan to spend at least 15 minutes per evening reviewing their Spanish materials. Don't forget to check out Google Classroom ("About" Tab) for helpful learning resources.

As always, please feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.

Muchas gracias,

Señora Piazza

As a reminder, Spanish 1 is a high school credit course. Please make sure your student is studying and preparing for the assessments mentioned above.

Spanish Club Update

Our final Spanish Club meeting for the year will be held on May 11th from 3:15 - 4:15 pm. The students have requested that we cook again! Please contact me prior to the meeting if your child has a food allergy. Gracias!

Supplies & Materials

The beginning of a new term is a great time to "refill" your child's school supplies. Please make sure that your student has writing utensils and loose leaf paper in their Spanish binders.

As the school year comes to a close, please make sure that your child keeps their Spanish Chapter notes for Level 2. These resources will be useful as your child continues with their Spanish studies.
