Welcome to Spanish Class!
¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!
Ask your child to sing Buenos Días a Ti as you begin your day together. Students love singing to each other in Spanish! In class, our brief dialogues are expanding to include our feelings, greetings, farewells, colors, shapes and numbers. Hopefully, your child is teaching you too! We have supported our language learning with authentic Spanish educational videos and songs.
Hispanic culture is infused into the lessons. During September we discuss Hispanic Heritage Month and El Dia de la Independencia in Mexico and Central America. In the month of October we explore the cultural significance o the Day of the Dead (El Día de los Muertos) and the meaning it takes on to many of the Hispanic world. Children have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of diverse cultural traditions and compare those to their own.
Continue to look for the 'Home Connections' page to keep you informed our class language learning. It will be sent home as we begin new themes in class and introduce the vocabulary/expressions associated with that unit of study. Encourage your child to ‘teach’ you what was learned in class and practice Spanish with family and friends.
¡Es divertido hablar español! It’s fun to speak Spanish!
