¡Bienvenidos to Spanish class!
Being bilingual will provide you with many wonderful opportunities, Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world. The goal for this class is to build the students vocabulary, and participate in short conversations,
Parents please remember that learning a second language is better accomplished by immersion, that’s why I will be speaking to the students in Spanish a lot giving them simple commands and then translate, I will continue doing this for the whole year, however for simple and repetitive phrases eventually I won’t translate, usually by the second semester, and trust me they will know how to say cierra la puerta (close the door), enciende la luz (turn the lights on), etc. Every child has the opportunity to be successful in my classroom if he/she comes prepared and willing to participate.
I am a native Spanish speaker and I taught for two years in the Bilingual Optional school at Shelby County Schools in first grade which gave me the opportunity to know how the language is developed in both English and Spanish, I am looking forward to a great second year of Spanish at Bon Lin Middle School, as we have fun learning vocabulary, culture, singing Latino songs and watching some movies to enrich your child knowledge and literacy.
For Spanish 1 Honors we will work harder and the amount of work will be a lot more to be prepared for Spanish II for High School, since this class will be credited as a High school class, and this will give your student the opportunity to receive an extra year of Spanish.
