Alden Spanish ROCKS!
I have at last met each class and I feel great to have been able to get to know each student and allow them to get to know me a little bit.
- We will start moving into Spanish as we work at daily anouncement questions and circular conversation
Each day we start out with 2 or 3 quesitons that are review (first week NEW) that allow us to review and use as much Spanish as possible. This provides students authentic interaction with the material in a low stress environment. It also provides "input" and "output" opportunities for the language.
- This week we will also be reading a short story about Profe
With this story we will introduce some basice phrases and vocabulary that will allow students to identify vocabulary authentically as well as apply "produce output" with that vocabulary. It is a great opportunity for students to put to work some things that they will hear through the story as well as apply them to their own lives.
Things to keeep in mind:
- our work with ser and adjective will be ongoing throughout the month of September...the story is the spring board to more depth and practice.
Thank you all and can't wait to see you in class soon!
PS - I will work to add information to the resources page to help students with opportunities for practice outside the classroom.
