Welcome to Spanish B

Mrs. Laura Juarez
This nine weeks is off to a great start! We have been practicing routines and procedures and all of the students have caught on great! This includes the days of the week, months of the year, the date, the weather, counting and alphabet/syllables to help with reading. We also have been learning the IB traits in Spanish.
We started off the first week with a deep discussion about the Rio Olympics and what the students thought that it takes for the athletes to be there and the great qualities they should have. Students stated that there needs to be focused attention, practice, and love what they do. Everything that I am looking for the students to do in Spanish B this year! I know that they will all do great!
We have also started our Q-talk curriculum. I will add more words as they are mastered. Please encourage your child to discuss the words that they have been learning. I am encouraging them to be risk-takers this year by trying to speak more Spanish both in and out of the classroom.
Integrated Specials is something new this year! Please ask your child about it. I have been in Second Grade these last few weeks in order to connect to their learning. They have been learning about structures and I have been teaching some lessons involving the structure of words, phrases and sentences in Spanish and how it compares to English. It was a great experience for the students and myself as well.
September 15 to October 15 is Hispanic Heritage Month. We will be recognizing the contributions of Hispanic and Latino Americans and doing some activities related to these individuals. This will be done on Wednesdays. I am looking for things in Spanish that can be added to a bulletin board. Please send in any wrappers, boxes, newspapers or magazines that have Spanish written on them. I appreciate your support!
