2016-17 first quarter

We have been enjoying a great school year!  Students have been motivated and are trying new things, taking risks, being creative and making mistakes, as they strive to communicate in Spanish. They can now exchange personal information.

Students searched and discovered Spanish used around our community.

We used Google classroom and Google Slides  for students to  collaborate with a partner and create their first “story”.

We discussed some fun facts about the Spanish speaking culture.

Students researched some basic facts about Spanish speaking countries, created notebook covers and recorded a presentation in Spanish about the country using the MIC note app.

First semester in Spanish class is a wrap 

Spanish 1:  

We’ve had a busy semester! Students can talk about what they or others do using a variety of-AR verbs. Students also engaged in conversations to talk about likes and dislikes.  Students identified family relations vocabulary and created a family tree. They worked in groups to tweak the Tengo una familia grande lyrics and then performed the new version. It was great fun. 

Cambridge Pre-AICE:

  

 Students ended the unit by creating a personal profile page to talk about themselves, classes they take and activities they enjoy.  In the process I discovered I have some amazing artists in class!

  
We finished the semester by reading the novel Brandon Brown quiere un perro. Students enjoyed the story and the opportunities to participate in readers theater. After we finished reading the book, planned and presented “movie trailers” to highlight memorable scenes. 

Games and competition

playing “concentracion”

This week, students engaged with vocabulary as they played a memory game matching vocabulary with an illustation. Partners also completed a scavenger hunt searching for items on their list. In less than five minutes, most teams found all the items.  Classes competed against each other to see how quickly they could read a list of 28 items. The Pre-AICE fourth period class was declared the winner with a record of 2:27 and the third period class finished 2:28 as a record for the Spanish 1 classes. These activities provided great comprehensible input.
During Enrichment students created posters to honor National Bullying Prevention Month
