4th Grade Spanish
¡Felíz Año Nuevo!

Happy new year, St. Perpetua!

I finally got around to be able to post some updates on our 4th grade Spanish page.
First of all, thank you for all your support, Christmas wishes, and gifts you sent my way.
I am amaze at how supportive this community is!  ¡Gracias!

Last week we began a unit to learn to talk about who we are and where we live.  Students are learning to respond to the questions ¿Cómo te llamas?  ¿De dónde eres? and ¿Cuántos años tienes?.  These may come in handy while traveling to Spanish-speaking countries.

They began to memorize nouns about the house.  They will be able to interact with me and other students to find out how their house is like.  They will describe by color, size, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc.  The concepts they'll learn through hearing and using the language are:  Use of verb "tener" (to have), use of question words ¿Qué?, ¿Cuántos? ¿En dónde? (what?, how many?, where?).  Describing things using the correct grammar form for adjective-noun agreement.

Students Should be taking a chart with all the nouns for rooms in the house home.  They should be memorizing the words every day.  I will attach a copy of the chart here for your convenience.    En La Casa - Bingo Chart Cards.png

Peace and all good!

¡Bienvenidos a nuestra página!

I will be updating this page as we advance in the curriculum for Spanish.  

Our fourth graders have welcomed our Spanish and are very engaged in learning the language.
We have worked on greetings and goodbyes, they are memorizing the days of the week and the colors to talk about dates, months and seasons.  

On Wednesday, October 3, they will have a vocabulary test on the colors and the days of the week.  Spelling counts! They have taken a couple of handouts they completed for practice at school.  Please help by providing the time and space to study.  I really appreciate your support from home.

This is the vocabulary they have been working on:
