This is our third year of offering Spanish in 4th and 5th grades and our ninth year of 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Classes meet on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays with alternating schedules. For example, in grades 6, 7 and 8, we’ll have group A on Tuesday and Thursday and Group B on Wednesday, and alternate the following week. Grades 4 and 5 will meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Tarea (homework) will be posted under your Grade: 6th Grade, 7th Grade or 8th Grade Spanish. Just click on your class grade. I typically will not give assignments in 4th and 5th Grade, and in 6th Grade only on occasion. All grades will have homework posted on the board in the classroom.
There will always be homework for 7th and 8th grade when you have class, and it is always due by the next class. I do not take late assignments unless you’re ill, and I’ll give you a handout explaining how that works in 7th grade which continues into 8th grade. Parents will need to read and sign the handout.
My goal is for you to be ahead of the rest of your class in Spanish when you enter high school. Many of our students go into Spanish 2 or 3 and even the honors program. When they come back to visit they let us know how prepared they are and often find Spanish to be their easiest class.
I look forward to preparing all students to meet this goal!
