Summer Work: Click here
The Spanish summer work is a very simple one-page assignment to get the kids to look for Spanish during their summer. The four questions should be filled out with a good effort and more than one word answers. Places I would suggest looking for Spanish even around your house are instruction books for games and appliances, food labels, books, movie subtitles, listening to people talking when out and about, and signs in public places. There are many more places to look for Spanish as well; get creative!
This site will continue to be updated so parents will know what their children are being asked to do in Spanish class and what they are learning! See the tabs above.
You can expect your child to have their cultural horizons broadened, their knowledge of language in general enhanced, and their ability to communicate in Spanish not fluent but much improved during their elementary school Spanish experience.
Read the directions carefully and feel free to contact me with any questions you have.
Work must be HANDWRITTEN.
A good dictionary resource (and much more reliable than a translator!) is www.wordreference.com.
Students should use words they know (from our handouts). They may use one word per assignment from the dictionary above IF they circle it, star it, and write at the bottom of the page what the definition given for the word they looked up in the dictionary (in parentheses) is.
Example, looking up the word "song" : Yo canto la canción. * (The word canción would also be circled.)
* (music with words)
Welcome to Spanish class! We have had Spanish for 2 years and will all be using a lot of Spanish, but it’s ok not to understand every word. The goal is to look for clues and figure out as much as you can--that's how you learn a new language.
My goal is not perfection; I’m way more thrilled to have lots of students giving it a try than just a few doing an amazing job! Listening and being on task is so important for language learning. There was a student last year who was completely new to Spanish, but she worked hard and paid attention and did wonderfully! If you listen and participate well, you’ll do well. If you’re trying hard and still having trouble, please ask me to help you.
