We will review the verb "estar" at the beginning of our course but students should be familiar with this verb and how to...

There will be minimal work to do outside of class, however, it is highly suggested that families continue 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 language in their brains. Some weeks additional activities will be posted for children to do outside of class. These are always optional but highly encouraged!
1 file available upon enrollmentIn this course, students will need minimal supplies. Any worksheets will be posted in the classroom portal before class starts so families have time to print. If you do not have access to a printer at home the teacher can also screen share the worksheet/activity so your child can still easily participate. Information for this class will be presented via Nearpod presentations which can be screen shared with students. In addition, Nearpod presentations allow students to access games and activities independently. The teacher is able to view student progress as they complete it on their own device. Instructions on how to use Nearpod can be viewed in the welcome message. No account is required. Depending on how quickly the students go through the material we may have time to do some additional exercises to practice the vocabulary. Please have your student bring a piece of paper and something to draw with to each class. If time allows we will use these materials to continue practicing the new words. Students 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.
1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class welcomes students of all gender identities and we want to equip students with the knowledge of how to talk about people of different gender identities. Spanish is a gendered language and adjective endings sometimes change depending on the gender of the person being described. This class includes the adjective endings and personal pronouns for those that identify as female, male and non-binary. 3rd party sources used in this class include Nearpod and Canva. Nearpod allows students to draw on the presentation and demonstrate their knowledge in a nonverbal manner in addition to speaking activities and exercises. No account is necessary and using Nearpod is optional as the teacher also has the ability to screen share these activities. If your child would like to complete the Nearpod activities independently they can access it using the link posted in the classroom portal before each lesson. Students will be able to draw and complete activities on a separate device like a tablet or phone. Students can submit their work to the teacher so the teacher can gauge their progress and understanding of the class objectives. A PDF with more instructions on how to use this online tool will be sent with the welcome message after enrollment. Canva is the website used to create the classroom lesson slides. These presentations will be screen shared. Unlike Nearpod, students do not have the ability to access this independently.
