Email sent to students and families (Clavell)

Buenas Noches!

I would like to give you an update on what we have been doing in Spanish class. As of right now, we have completed our first unit and CFA. The first unit consisted of colors, cognates (words that are similar in 2 languages; for example: Elefante = elephant), and classroom objects.  Please check grades on Infinite Campus.

Last week, we started the verb estar . The verb estar is used for Locations & Emotions (feelings). Students were exposed to a story last week and were expected to show a comic strip for comprehension.

For this week, students are working on their Señor Wooly website material. Señor Wooly is an interactive Spanish website where students are exposed to situations in life (being unprepared for class, asking to go to the bathroom, etc). This Thursday and Friday, students will be working on this website and they are encouraged to work on it at home!

If the students would like to work/study on class work at home, they are encouraged to go to and they can see the vocabulary words used in class. At this point, they are working on  The verb estar and Emotions. Everything should be located in the folder titled: The verb estar.

As always, if you have a question, please send an email! 

Have a great week, 

Mr. Clavell
