We made it through the first week… What a proud achievement that is! It seemed like we hardly skipped a beat and jumped right into all things Spanish! Although some students admitted they were feeling a little rusty, I have no doubts that we will get back up to speed as we continue to find a rhythm in our new “normal.”
Each week, High school and 7th/8th grade Spanish classes will follow themed days: Leer Lunes (Reading Monday), Target Language Tuesday, Música Miércoles (Music Wednesday), Juego Jueves (Game Day Thursday) and Cultura Viernes. This gives students the opportunity to be exposed to the language from all angles while also providing structure and consistency.
Next week, we will begin our themed units: ¡Todo sobre mi (All about me!) for 7th/8th grade and ¿Cómo eres? (What are you like?) for High School. Each unit will last about 6 weeks but may be extended or shortened depending on student interest or how quickly each unit’s concepts are mastered. I’m so excited to see how each student grows, achieves their own personal goals and becomes more fluent in Spanish this year! It’s going to be a great year!
