Assessment/testing in Spanish class

Hola familias,

The test the students started before break has almost been finished this week (it takes time to test each student on 4 Spanish questions). They have been working diligently in class on identifying colors & also learning commands that we use in the classroom such as:

Levántate/ Levántense = Stand up (1 person) / Stand up (group)

Siéntate/ Siéntense = Sit down (1 person) / Sit down (group)

Repitan = Repeat

Escuchen = Listen

Miren = Look

Levanten la mano = Raise your hand

Bajen la mano = Lower your hand

Saquen = Take out

Guarden = Put away

In about 2 weeks I will do a final test with them on the commands listed above, as a “listening assessment” & then will send all the results home with them. All are showing growth/learning, and I will let you know if you’re child needs any extra practice at home (but of course I always encourage it). 🙂

 

If you have any questions, please let me know.

 

Muchas gracias,

Señorita Kelly

3rd Grade homework: estudia (study)!

Hola familias,

In addition to reviewing words that we already know in Spanish, we’ve been talking about good reasons to learn a 2nd language, and where Spanish is the first language in the world.

HOMEWORK (students have already had this in their planners this week): STUDY (if needed)! Study what? 1.) the country that Spanish came from, 2.) a good reason to learn a second language, and 3.) knowing the names of 2 other Spanish-speaking countries

 

ASSESSMENT DATES: this Tuesday, Oct. 18 (PAHOLAK), and Wednesday, Oct. 19 (Konen & Palmer)

 

Optional homework- yes it is 100% optional: Students are welcome to bring in 1 (one) item that represents their heritage on the above mentioned dates. (Some examples might include: a country’s flag, a traditional clothing item, a recipe, a book, and/or a photo, etc.) They are also welcome to write down answers to the optional 3 homework questions that are on the worksheet they bring home to study (From what countries/continents did our ancestors come? Did they know English when they came here? What heritage (practices that are handed down from the past by tradition) does our family have?)

 

Last, I hope you have enjoyed the postcards “from” Spain that they have brought home.

 

Muchas gracias,

Señorita Kelly
