Spanish Specialist Pre K – 5 and 7th Grade
The Pre-K class continues to learn the numbers, letters and weather. We will be focusing on what kinds of fruits/FRUTAS they like to eat by saying Me gusta comer, or NO me gusta comer. They will be singing along with the song, “Frutas“.
La Clase de Kindergarten
The Kindergarteners have been learning the numbers 1-15, followed by the song “Los numeros with Basho and Friends” (the numbers) and using addition flashcards to practice the numbers as well. We will be learning the song related to spring called, “Somos Como las Flores” (Each of us is a Flower). They will create a book from the song. They will also learn new vocabulary related to what they see in the spring. Veo flores, lluvia, arcoiris, animals bebés, etc. (I see flowers, rain, rainbows, baby animals, etc.). In our warm-up time, we continue reviewing the weather, days of the week and alphabet.
La Clase de Primer Grado
The First Grade students will be practicing the farm animals and saying, “Mi animal favorito es ____.” (My favorite animal is___.). They will also learn various things that they see in la primavera (the spring) with a spring song, “Somos como las flores (Each of us is a flower). They will create flashcards to practice their vocabulary words for spring. I am very impressed by how excited they are in learning new themes every month in Spanish class and how well they are able to memorize, identify, and apply the vocabulary learned.
La Clase de Segundo Grado
The Second Grade students continue to review the weather, the months of the year, numbers and the alphabet. We will be creating flashcards to learn spring words, “En la primavera yo veo ___”( In spring I see__). I am very happy to see how the students are very engaged in learning new Spanish words and phrases every time we meet.
La Clase de Tercer Grado
Third Graders will have a great time learning the foods and working in groups asking each other what they like to eat and what they dislike, using the phrases: “¿Qué te gusta comer? Que no te gusta comer.” The Third Graders will create a fruit stand in the classroom and order their favorite fruit to eat. Example of the conversation: “Quiero comer manzana, pera y uvas. Por favor” (I’d like to eat apple, pear and grapes. Please!)
La Clase de Cuarto Grado
The Fourth Graders will start talking about going to places on different days of the week and times. Learning common places in the community such as el cine (movies), la ecuela (school), la tienda (store), el restaurant, (restaurant) etc. They also learn how to use the singular present tense forms of ir (to go) followed by a song that will make it fun and easy to learn this grammar lesson.
La Clase de Quinto Grado
The Fifth Graders did a great job in telling time creating clocks and also did fantastic work on a test telling time. Kudos! This month, we will be focusing on what they like to eat and what they don’t like for desayuno, almuerzo y cena. We will talk about the types of meriendas (snacks) the Latin American culture likes to eat and what time they eat snacks and meals.
La Clase de Septimo Grado
The Seventh Graders are doing great with Unit 5: ¡Aventura! We have covered the country of Costa Rica, the verb tener (to have), expressing strong feelings with ¡Qué (+adjective/noun), what activities you do throughout the week in school and at home. We will be learning direct object pronouns. This month they are working on a project with a partner creating an imaginary town of their own with 10 community places. They will present it in Spanish to the class and will say where each place is located. The goal of this project is to learn to give directions.
