8th graders have been practicing the alphabet in Spanish.  They should be able to spell their names out loud using the Spanish letters.   For help with the alphabet check out Spanish alphabet military march on YouTube.  We are also working on how to ask and answer How are you? this week.  After this vocabulary, students should be ready for the first test.  Remind your student to review a bit every day.

6th and 7th graders are finishing vowel sounds, and will both have a quiz on numbers (0-30) and vowels early next week.   We are also working on days of the week and dates.  Remind your student to review a bit every day as well.

With 8th graders I am working on learning what they know.   They are doing a pretest ¿Qué sabes? (What do you know) so I can get an idea of what they have already learned.  We are currently reviewing days and dates, greetings and introductions, and numbers 0-39.

 

7th graders are reviewing greetings, introductions, and good-byes.  We will also be reviewing days, dates, and numbers 0-39.

6th graders are learning greetings and how to say their name and other’s names.  (me llamo/  se llama)   We will be working on vowel sounds to help with pronunciation as well.

All students have chosen a Spanish name to go by and are learning or reviewing basic greetings and introductions.   Students have organized their Spanish binders so they can use it this year (and over the next 1-2 years for 6th and 7th graders) as a reference.

6th grade

We have been learning greetings, numbers, alphabet, and that all nouns in Spanish have a natural gender (rooster/hen, man/woman), but also all words in Spanish have a grammatical gender.  This means that we say “the” for all nouns: the man, the table, etc., but in Spanish it would be el for the man and la for the table, thus el hombre, la mesa.

They should be studying the alphabet for a quiz next week.

We have been reviewing the Spanish alphabet by spelling names and countries, and a fun mata moscas/fly swatting game at the board. They then had a quiz on it.   We have been reviewing the Spanish speaking countries, labeling maps, and will have a quiz  on Monday labeling a map of Central America and writing the nationalities in Spanish.
