¡Bienvenidos a la clase de Español! 

Course Overview :   This course will help students develop their ability to understand simple spoken and written Spanish. At the same time, they will learn to communicate orally and in writing in a culturally appropriate manner about familiar topics that include self, school, food, pastimes, family, house, and clothing. Grammar will be integrated throughout the units.  I will do my best to allow for different techniques and lesson plans in the classroom that will proide excitement and ease when learning Spanish.

5th Grade :  This year, the 5th Grade students have a new curriculum. They will be using Calico Spanish. The students will be exposed to the Spanish language through songs, visual aids, videos, mini dramatizations, and other fun activities. The primary goal is to develop a student's receptive language skills.

6th through 8th Grade:  Grades 6th through 8th will be using Realidades. Each student will have access to their Realidades textbook online at

Quizzes and Tests :   Quizzes will be administered after each section.  At the end of the unit, a test will be administered.  Quizzes and tests will be returned after all students take the quiz or test.

My Grading Policy, Discipline Policy, and Class Participation Rubric can be accessed on my Teacher’s Page. The Grading and Discpline Policy is addressed in the “Class Cooperation Plan”.
