Greetings desde el mundo español!
In Alzar School’s Introductory Spanish class, students practice reading comprehension, listening comprehension, verbal and writing proficiency through engaging and challenging projects. Each week, students learn a new set of vocabulary and focus on a new set of grammatical topics. These topics are focused around both a weekly project and our current novel – “Piratas.” During our first unit (“La Identidad”- Identity) students created online dating profile videos to practice describing their personalities and physical appearance using adjectives. More recently in our second unit (“Nuestro Ambiente” – our environment), students created weather reports, gave brief presentations on Spanish-speaking countries, and wrote Children’s Books using simple present tense verbs and environmental vocabulary.
They have also been practicing listening comprehension and verbal proficiency through reading and acting out chapters from our novel “Piratas.” Through these hands-on projects, I’ve seen students progressing in leaps and bounds, and they are excited to learn!
