Queridos padres y estudiantes (Dear Parents and Students),
¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español! Welcome to Spanish Class! On my web page you will find weekly tarea (homework) and additional updates in Grades 3-8 Spanish. Students can also find helpful online resources as well as our class syllabus/contract.
It is my goal this year to make students comfortable using the Spanish language. Students are expected to be good listeners and participants. Working together as a class will surely get the job done! Also, it is important that students do their best in speaking the language in the classroom. Languages can be hard to learn, but participation and effort can help us strive for greatness!
Although considered an enrichment, Spanish is an academic course. Grading is on a 1-4 scale based off of effort, participation, behavior, and attitude. In addition, homework, quizzes, and tests will be assigned (and graded) according to the lesson. Additional grading rubrics can be found under Grading.
Along with required supplies in Spanish class, students are greatly encouraged to use their St. Catharine School Planners to record assignments.
I hope we all continue to have a wonderful school year. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the course of the year.
