Bienvenidos a mi sitio web.
New Information for our procedures during our COVID-19 closure:
On Monday March 16th I will begin posting some suggested activities. I highly encourage you to work on your Spanish every day. Click on Homework and Quiz Calendar and click on today's date for your daily work. Each day there will be a list of activities for students to do. While I can't replicate the work we would be doing in the classroom, if you do the activities diligently you will see concrete benefits.
I have assigned a number of short activities from our Pearson online textbook. Please complete those activities as soon as possible. This helps me see where we're at so I can better plan our next activities.
To access the Pearson site:
From the school home page select Students, then tools, then Pearson. The middle of the screen will show the assignments and due dates. The Pearson site will list assignments and due dates.
I have asked all students to use their school e-mail to send me a mail test email.
As a way to maintain and improve your Spanish skills, I encourage you to take this opportunity to seek out and watch Spanish language video. Netflix and Prime have subtitle options that include Spanish, and it is very helpful if you use the Spanish language subtitles when available. Please be aware that much of the content on Netflix and Prime is stronger than what we would watch in school, so be sure that your parents approve. Children's programming is always a safe bet, and the two Zip and Zap movies are entertaining and full of good Spanish. Youtube has lots of G rated options. I like Calliou in Spanish because it's easy to understand, as is Pocoyo and Peppa the Pig. There are computer generated subtitles on most Youtube content that miss a lot and do a lot wrong, but they are good to turn on anyway. Finally, broadcast television such as Univision and Telemundo are great sources. Use your TV remote to access the closed captioning which will already be in Spanish.

Second Semester Grade Improvement Incentive:
If you earned a low grade first semester (C, D or F), you have a chance to improve that grade. If you can earn a grade two letter grades higher than your first semester grade,
I will raise your first semester grade by one letter grade.
