español 3

¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español 3!

Parents and students,

Welcome to Spanish 3! I hope that you are excited to continue to learn Spanish! You are acquiring all of the tools that you need to make a difference in the world and to be who you are. I hope to equip you to be able to use Spanish as a part of that. Three expectations that I have for you in this class are:


In this class we will communicate in Spanish everyday.

Make sure to ask for help when needed.

We will be positive, polite, and patient as we learn.


I also have 3 non-academic positive expectations for you in the class:


respect

kindness

honesty


I'm looking forward to a great semester with you!


Ms. Odiah

supplies


  • Spanish binder or folder, including notes and activities
  • basic school supplies - pen, pencil, paper
  • 1 box of Kleenex, roll of paper towels, or Clorox wipes
  • technology (school-issued iPad or personal technology if available)
  • Word Reference App - NOT A TRANSLATOR
  • online resources, including unit sites


If you would like to contribute markers, crayons, or glue to the classroom that would be great!


During unit 2, you will need a canvas to paint on. Any size that you want to use is fine.

technology


  • Technology should be a helpful resource for students to enrich their learning and not a distraction.
  • Students should be focused and engaged in class activities.
  • Technology use during certain times will be prohibited and would be considered cheating and treated as such.
  • Consequences for technology misuse may include teacher-student conference, parent contact, detention, referral, technology time out, and others if necessary.

grading policies


  • Daily Work - 25%
  • Quizzes - 25%
  • Tests - 50%
  • Corrections - Tests and quizzes can be corrected for up to a 70. They should be completed as soon as possible, not at the end of the nine weeks.
  • Late work - one day 70, two days 50, per policy.
  • Don't cheat. (Don't use translators. Don't copy someone else's work. Don't allow anyone else to copy. Don't use unauthorized materials on any assignment.)

tutoring

I am available most days before and after school in W208 for tutoring and extra help. If you need help, please let me know and we will set up a time. Please ask for help when you need it! We should have time in class to answer a lot of your questions.

Let me know if you know that you will be out. You can email me at odiaha@lisd.net or ask me for make up work. It is your responsibility to get your make up work.
