OAK SPANISH CLASS NEWSLETTER


marzo abril

Hello parents and guardians,

In grade 7, students are describing their school day. They are describing their schedules, classes, and teachers while talking about their favorite classes. They will eventually be able to include what their teachers, they, and their peers do in those classes. Students are integrating new vocabulary and structures, expanding upon their previous learning. As we move into April, students will continue working with classroom vocabulary, but will improve their descriptive skills by talking about what items are present in a space and where they are located. The cultural highlights in these units focus on school, including comparisons of school schedules, classes, and school structures in Spanish-speaking countries with local schools.
 
In grade 8, students are describing their plans for the near future and are inviting others to do a leisure activity or to go to an event with them. They are learning to politely accept or decline invitations. As we shift into April, students will begin talking about family celebrations and learning about a celebration particular to some Spanish-speaking cultures. Other cultural notes in these units include comparisons of popular sports and pastimes around the world and who’s included in one’s “inner circle” (close family-friend circle).
