7th grade Spanish - Q1 2016-2017
The first month of the school year was spent on reviewing material from sixth grade. This helped students get back into "Spanish mode" and remember important concepts and vocabulary to help them succeed this year. The students took a review quiz on "Socrative" to self assess their knowledge of the review and did great! We did games and activities, such as "speed dating", to help students review, and had a fun time while doing so.
We will next be starting chapter 3A from the Realidades textbook and the theme of the chapter is food. This one of the favorite themes from the year since everyone can agree that they love food! :)
Our goal is that students will be able to effectively communicate in Spanish through speaking, reading, listening, and writing activities. We will be using websites like Quizlet and GoVocab to help us along the way. Please check Edmodo for homework assignments and if your child is absent. We are all looking forward to a fantastic, fun year in Spanish!
8th grade Spanish - Q1 2016-2017
¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español, octavo grado! We started off the year by establishing classroom norms and expectations; with the students getting the opportunity to help come up with ways in which we can assure that the class is a positive learning experience for everybody! This first quarter of the year starts out with a comprehensive review of what the students have been studying in Spanish class over the past two years. Through various collaborative and independent activities, the students are currently reviewing various grammatical topics, such as the verbs “ser” and “estar” and how to conjugate regular AR, ER, and IR verbs. After a couple weeks of review, we will move on to Chapter 6A of the class textbook (Realidades), where the students will learn to describe the various objects and colors that make up their room at home! Our goal is that students will be able to communicate effectively in Spanish, through reading, writing, listening, and speaking. In order to help them achieve this goal, the students will be using online technological mediums such as GoVocab.com and Quizlet.com. If your child is absent, please encourage them to check Edmodo.com, as all class assignments will be posted there by the end of the school day. Looking forward to a fun, exciting year. ¡Hasta Luego!
6th grade French - Q1 2016-2017
We started the year with introductions and the alphabet. Students can say their days of the week and months of the year. Ask your Frenchie to sing the days of the week song to you! See if you can recognize where the song came from. Frenchies will be asking one another how things are going, tell how they are, invite someone, and accept or refuse an invitation-with a good excuse of course! Encourage your Frenchie to teach you what they are learning. They get to strengthen their skills while you get to learn alongside them.
