There will be minimal work to do outside of class, however, it is highly suggested that families encourage their children to practice the new vocabulary and concepts outside of the classroom. Practicing outside of class will give students the opportunity to relate the class material to their own life and environment which will help cement the new language in their brains. Occasionally additional activities for children to do outside of class will be posted in the classroom dashboard. These are optional but highly encouraged!

In this course, students will need minimal supplies. Any worksheets will be posted in the classroom portal before class starts. Please let the teacher know if you do not have access to a printer so they can make accommodations. Information for this class will be presented via google slide presentations and nearpod presentations (a link will be sent to participants via the classroom dashboard before class starts). Depending on how quickly the students go through the material there may be time to complete additional exercises to practice new vocabulary. Please have your student bring a piece of paper and something to draw with to each class. If time allows these materials will be used to continue practicing the new words. Student's should come prepared to speak Spanish, interact with their classmates, and have fun! If there are any additional supplies they will be listed in the classroom section before the class begins.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Nearpod
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class I include the personal pronoun elle/elles when we have lessons on the personal pronouns or discussions on the adjective endings (in the Spanish language adjectives used to describe people will take a different ending to agree with the gender of the person). Elle/Elles are pronouns that can be used to describe people who identify as non-binary or to talk about groups of people where not everyone has the same gender. Our organizations goal is to make sure that all students in our classes have access to pronouns that affirms how they choose to identify or talk about individuals they know. 
In this course, teachers may integrate interactive features in their presentations using nearpod (https://nearpod.com/). This will allow students to draw on the presentation slides and demonstrate their knowledge in a nonverbal manner in addition to speaking activities and exercises. 

Before class, a link will be posted in the classroom portal that will allow students to access this interactive slideshow. On select slides, students will be able to draw and complete activities. They can submit their work to me so the teacher can gauge their progress and understanding of the class objectives.
