¡Hola, bienvenidos a la clase de español!

Attention students: Please visit the "Class Notes" section of this site to access classroom resources by clicking on the tab located at the left of the screen.  Also, scroll down for more information regarding Footsteps.

The 8th grade is doing an amazing job learning how to read, write, and speak in Spanish. 

Topics so far include:
- identifying the subject and verb of a sentence
- pluralizing nouns
- definite and indefinite articles
- article / noun / adjective agreement
- subject pronouns
- expressing ownership
- "ar" verb family conjugation
- cognate, family, classroom, and activity vocabulary
- Catholic and cultural traditions celebrated throughout the
Spanish speaking world

We are also listening for comprehension. 
Check out episodes 1-4 of Destinos, an Annenberg Learner telecourse, to learn more about the Castillo family and the mystery contained in don Fernando's letter.

We recently watched and discussed
"Footsteps: the path of your life,"
a documentary which chronicles a pilgrimage to
Santiago de Compostella, Spain.  It is available on Netflix and our discussion questions can be found in "Class Notes".

☺ Extra help is offered during recess on Mondays through Thursdays, by appointment.
I am happy to set up additional study sessions! ☺

*Making flashcards at home is a great way to study new words*
