OAK SPANISH CLASS NEWSLETTER


Enero-Febrero

Hello, parents and guardians!

In grade 7, students have reached the end of the classroom description unit and have taken the chapter test. Students have begun their next unit of study and are learning how to discuss what they eat and drink for breakfast and lunch. In this unit, students learn how to use new types of verbs (-er, -ir), how to express their own and others’ likes and dislikes (foods and beverages), and how to express the frequency with which they or others eat or drink a breakfast/lunch item. This unit is rich in culture with many small class discussions on similarities and differences in meals and mealtimes.
 
In grade 8, students are in the middle of the family and family celebrations unit; they are perfecting their use of the verb tener and practicing expressing relationship and possession. Students will be describing family members and discussing their own and others’ roles in family parties.
