Hello, parents and guardians!

In grade 7, students are beginning a new unit. While still working with classroom vocabulary, students are using their descriptive skills to talk about what items are present in a space and where they are located. This chapter’s cultural highlights include comparisons of schools in Spanish-speaking countries with local schools.
In grade 8, students are working with sports and pastime vocabulary; they are perfecting their use of the verb jugar (to play) and will soon be inviting others to do activities with them and learning to politely accept or decline invitations. Cultural notes in this chapter center on comparisons of popular sports and pastimes (Spanish-speaking countries v. US).
