Are your students bored yet? Do they claim they have forgotten everything they have learned in Spanish? Or are they just missing Señora Strozewski? 🙂 Here are a few ways to retain your Spanish or add on to what you have learned.
My quizlet account is a great place to start. Student usually love the games and ALL the vocabulary we have learned is there. Just search kstrozacsc under quizlet.com
Duolingo is a great app for learning Spanish and it’s fun. There is a “placement test” at the start so it doesn’t go over your head. And there is a lot of repitition.
Another place to go is freerice.com. If you go to Spanish, it will provide you multiple choice vocabulary practice. Don’t worry- if you don’t know a word it will give you the answer and revisit it often for practice. And you donate rice to the hungry with every answer you get right.
That should keep you busy on those long car rides to the lake. Enjoy and ¡Hasta septiembre!
As we finish out this school year, I would like to send a huge GRACIAS to the All Saints families for all of your support. I have enjoyed teaching your children and laugh every day when I am with them. This school is an amazing community and I am very fortunate to be a part of it. I hope you all have a great summer. ¡Vaya con Dios!
