Welcome to K-8 Spanish!
Students in K-6th grade learn basic vocabulary and sentence structures typically used in conversations related to specific themes. This year's theme is "Leisure Activities". (Check out my website's Newsletters and Assignments section for more details).
In addition, students in 4th-6th grade also begin to learn basic Spanish grammar. They will be quarterly assessed on their Writing, Reading, Listening, and Speaking skills. (Detailed assignments and study guides can be found in the assignments section of this website).
Students in 7th grade continue to learn Spanish as an elective class. They work on classroom activities that provide them with practice in interpreting, expressing, and negotiating meaning through extensive and frequent peer interactions.
Students must score a C or above for their final grade in order to enroll in Spanish 1-2 the following year.
Spanish 1-2 (Semesters 1and 2) is the equivalent to a year of High School Spanish for students in 8th grade. This course follows the High School Curriculum, Grading, and Guidelines set forth in the Academic Planning Guide. The grades earned in Spanish 1-2 will be calculated into the student's High School GPA.
