Welcome back from Spring Break! Here’s what is planned for Spanish classes this week:
Pre-K through 2nd Grade: We will have abbreviated Spanish classes this week due to All-School Mass on Wednesday. We will only have time to complete our normal conversation routine, along with calendar and weather.
3rd Grade & 4th Grade: We got back into our Spanish routine after a few weeks off for ITBS Testing. In both classes, we continued our normal conversation and calendar routines. In third grade we also reviewed some vocabulary from third quarter by playing hangman, and in fourth grade, we began Lesson 8, discussing how to tell time.
5th Grade: We will do a quick review of our Lesson 10 vocabulary and the verb ser before starting Lesson 11 and conjugating regular -ir verbs.
6th Grade: We are finishing up Unit 4, with a brief lesson on the Spanish word “de” and contraction “del.” We will conclude the unit with some reading comprehension practice.
7th Grade: We will learn how to conjugate regular -ar verbs in the preterite tense. There will be a quiz on this topic on Monday, March 30.
8th Grade: This quarter we will review all Spanish concepts covered, in preparation for the comprehensive Spanish exam in May, which will also prepare students to take the high school Spanish placement exam.
