We’ve had an awesome start to the school year in our Spanish department! Non-Heritage students (students who are not bilingual or have family members that actively speak to them in Spanish at home), we have been reviewing or exposed to the following concepts:
- Basic Phrases and Greetings
- The verb to Have (tener)
- Colors & Numbers
- Cognates (words similar in two or more languages)
This year we have access to an awesome website that we’ve used in Spanish class: senorwooly.com; students have used it in my (Sr. Clavell’s) classroom and in Profe’s (Sra. Finesseth’s) classroom. It’s a great tool for students to make catch-up work at home and it has games that keep students engaged in Spanish.
Today at Open House, you will be able to receive a syllabus for the class, which I will upload here later today.
Thank you for everything, and see you at Open House!
Hope everybody is all right and that you had a great start to the 2017-2018 school year!
Just a reminder of how this school year is shaping up. We have 2 new Spanish teachers at Brody, meaning we have a total of 3 Language Acquisition teachers!!
Mr. Berube will focus on Non-heritage Students in all grade levels.
Ms. Finneseth will focus on 7th grade heritage, a 6th grade heritage class (on A days) and non-heritage.
Mr. Clavell will focus on 8th grade heritage students, a 6th grade heritage class(on A days) and non-heritage.
Just a reminder of apps you can use to study at home are: duolingo, quizlet, and SpanishDict (Spanish dictionary).
Also, we encourage students to create a Sr.Wooly account so that you can see Billy la Bufanda and other awesome Spanish videos.
