Sra. Becky Patch
Me llamo Señora Patch. I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing summer. I am excited for another school year! For more information regarding the Spanish program, please view the games/flashcards/newsletters on my webpage. Please check my web page often to stay up to date on what is happening each month and to see current homework assignments. I will also be using multiple website in class and for homework assignments. It is very important that you child knows his-her google username and password in order to access many of these sites.
This year I will be teaching Spanish at both Hawthorne and Jefferson. Each third-fifth grade class will have Spanish once a week for an hour. I will be at Hawthorne in the morning and Jefferson in the afternoon. Since I will be traveling, if you need to contact me the fastest way to do so will be via email (email@example.com).

For Spanish the children are assessed in three different areas interpersonal (speaking), interpretive (reading/listening), and presentational (writing). None of our categories have pluses. The students can only receive 1, 2, 3, or 4. It is very difficult to receive a 4 in any of the categories. The children have to go way above and beyond what we are learning in class to receive a 4. At this point in the year, we have not learned an extensive amount of vocabulary for our unit since they are year long units. If your child currently has a 1 or 2 in the interpersonal category, he/she is where he/she should be. As we progress in the unit your child will be able to use more vocabulary and ask more questions during their conversations. The interpretive category only has three levels for Spanish 1, 2, or 3.
