Hola! Across all grades we are currently working on a unit on animals. In this unit, students will be learning social and academic language patterns: greetings, idioms, colloquialisms, and nonverbal gestures. Students will be introduced to new nouns, verbs, adjectives, prepositions and demonstratives. They will also continue working on how to express emotions, likes and dislikes (written and verbal). In addition, through some of the choice board activities I hope to practice basic sentence structure, questions, statements and commands. By the end of the year, it is my goal to have all grades familiar with the Spanish Subject Pronouns.
For K5 – 2nd there will also be an emphasis on continuing to work on activities for color recognition, calendar skills, number recognition, parts of the body and conversation skills.
In 3rd- 5th, we will continue to reinforce previously learned concepts and skills, subject pronouns and working on conjugating present tense –ar verbs. In May, we will also be moving towards working with present tense –er & -ir verbs.
If you have not already joined, I invite you all to join the Special Area google classroom where you will be able to find my Spanish choice board activities for students to pick from, read alouds, and information for any live zooms that will take place. If you are not aware of the code that pertains to your child’s grade level, feel free to email me and I will provide it.
Here you will find a great study tool for the vocabulary we are learning. Locate the class I have set up by searching for my username senora_prohaska
For daily opportunities to complete Spanish lessons, I would recommend the duolingo app. In 1st-5th your child has an account setup through me, if you need that login feel free to reach out and I will send it your way (or feel free to create your own). This application provides vocabulary, speaking, listening and grammar exercises.
