¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!

I am so excited to listen to music, watch cool videos, and play fun games as we learn my most favorite topic…Spanish!  Oh, did I forget, maybe a fiesta?

Did you know that the study of languages and cultures provides important preparation for living, leading, and achieving in a global community?

These are the main objectives for Spanish class:

  • Communication – Self-expression by listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
  • Culture – Understanding the difference between ideas, attitudes, and practices in other countries.
  • Comparisons / Connections – Recognizing, respecting, and relating to similar and differing points of view.
  • Communities –Becoming lifelong learners by using the language for personal enjoyment and enrichment.

 

Familias, your involvement is muy importante (that’s a cognate)!!!  I encourage you to help your child from home.  There is no shortage of wonderful online resources for children.  Just search “Spanish for kids.”  I have included just a few sites to get you started:
