Spanish yr long 1

This week in Spanish 1 we have done lots of reading comprehension and writing.  I have been so proud of these students.  I have given them paragraphs to read in Spanish covering all the parts of vocabulary they have learned thus far and they have had to reador understanding and answer in complete sentences in Spanish.  While this is a new skill, they were challenged but did great.  We will continue to do this and it will truly benefit them in the future with languages.

We have also been discussing what “Heritage” means and why we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month Sept. 15-Oct. 15.  We have discussed a few Hispanic figures and their contributions to the US.  Students will present a project on a famous Hispanic next Monday for a test grade.  They are working on this in class.  They have the rubric and I look forward to these presentations.
