Dear Students and Parents,

Want to know what we did in Spanish class?  Here's where to find out:



Middle School Spanish Class  2nd Elective

Please check your Microsoft Team and click on the "daily post" channel.  That is where I will post all of the class announcements, class notes, handouts, calendar, videos, and homework for the day as well as announcing it "in person" during Spanish class.  If you lose a handout or forgot to bring your Spanish folder home with your homework worksheet, no worries, just click on the "files" from the daily post channel and a digital copy will appear that you can print at home and bring to class. 

We will NOT be using Teams to turn in assignments.  All homework, test, quizzes, etc. will be "on paper" and written neatly in pencil with proper handwriting, spelling, and punctuation.  Only use our Microsoft Team to refer to the "daily post" for information about what to expect for the day in Spanish class.

To access the "daily post":

1.  Open up Microsoft Teams. 
2.  Locate and click to open the team entitled "Middle School Spanish 2nd Elective Fall Semester 2021". 
3.  On the left hand side you will see a channel entitled "daily post".  Click to open. 
 Read what I post for Spanish class each day as a reminder of what we discussed in class, as well as any homework, or upcoming tests, quizzes, etc.  

 * Please note that I expect daily practice/homework every weekday for 10 min.  THIS IS NOT ALWAYS WRITTEN HOMEWORK TO TURN IN, BUT IT CAN BE.  Many of the Spanish homework assignments will be "practicing" Spanish pronunciation orally or watching a video and practicing for 10 min. In the case of a oral practice homework assignment, students are expected to practice for 10 min. but will not be turning in any "written" work.  Homework that is written and is turned in for a grade will be in the form of a handout on paper given in class and the due date will appear in RED ON THE CALENDAR AS "HOMEWORK GRADE".

In class each student will receive a calendar (paper copy) with all daily topics, homework, practice, quizzes, tests,  etc.  If you lose your calendar, it is available digitally from the "files" tab under the "daily Post" channel in our Team.   

If a student is absent:  Please check the "daily post" channel of our Microsoft Team.  I will post what we did in class as well as any class announcements, class notes, handouts, homework worksheets etc. Students can access any handouts ,videos, or homework sheets presented in class on the day of the absence by clicking the "files" tab.  Students who miss a written quiz or test must make arrangements with me for making these up after school.  Failure to do so in a timely manner may result in a grade of "0"as per the school's make up work policy in the school handbook.

Middle School ESL Language First Elective Class:

Elementary Spanish Classes K-5

All Elementary Students K- 5 take this class  Students are taking this class once a week as an exploratory Spanish language class and are not expected to produce any written work or homework.  All  Spanish language is mostly practiced orally in class through use of songs, games, dances, videos, and movement activities.  I will videos shown in class that the students can access at home if they want further practice.  If a student wants access to a video or song or game from class PLEASE CHECK THE ELEMENTARY TAB OF THIS WEBSITE. (left hand side).  I will update these as we change themes every few weeks.


Elementary ESL Classes K-5

Eligible ESL students will be placed in small group classes according to their English language ability in all aspects of listening comprehension, reading, writing, and speaking.  These groups are determined by ESL ASSESS Test Scores and teacher/parent recommendation.  These classes will not begin until sometime later in September.  I will print a schedule and more info. soon.
