Señora Mills’ Spanish 1 Tigers

Weekly Newsletter

Weekly Update 1/31/16

The Spanish 1 students have been learning about families and how to describe people this past week. As we wrap up the unit this week, the students have been working toward writing and describing people in Spanish. On Thursday and Friday, they will be completing their summative, which is a written paragraph in Spanish describing their family. There will also be a comprehension section on Friday.


Students should be starting to think about who they are describing and how they will be describing them. It is a daunting task for students to think that they can write a paragraph (or two) in Spanish, but I know that they can do it! All writing for the summative will happen during class.
