Bienvenidos = Welcome

7th grade

Bienvenidos (welcome) to the new seventh grade students at Winthrop Middle School.  Señor Miller, a former Spanish teacher at Chester and Deep River Elementary Schools, is excited to be one of the World Language teachers at Winthrop. Seventh grade students will be reviewing conversational greetings, and reviewing adjectives and how to describe themselves and others in Spanish.  This involves reviewing nouns and gender, and how adjectives agree with the nouns that they describe in Spanish. This unit will culminate with students describing themselves by writing an acrostic poem using adjectives that they think describe them well.

8th grade

Bienvenidos (welcome) to the eighth grade students returning for their final year at Winthrop Middle School. Señor Miller is very happy to be working with some of last year's seventh graders. For the first few weeks eighth grade Spanish students will be reviewing material learned in Spanish class last year. ln the middle of September eighth grade Spanish students will be learning about soccer, baseball and basketball in Spanish. In this sports unit students will learn some “stem changing” verbs in Spanish.

Homework is always posted on Google Classroom.

Please take the time to visit the Spanish web site (under teacher web pages) and encourage your child to play the games, and maybe even teach you something. Señora Valencia, the Spanish teacher in Essex, creates the games using the vocabulary students are learning in class. A big part of learning a language is exposure and repetition. These games are a fun way to practice and reinforce what they are learning at school.
