¡Bienvenidos a la clase de español!

Queridas familias (Dear Families),


Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year at PMES!  All Humanities are virtual including Spanish (in both the Remote Learning and Hybrid Models).  Learning will occur using the Google Classroom platform.  You can find a copy of this letter on my school website.  The Grade level codes for each Google Classroom can be found on this letter as well as on each of my Grade Level Webpages.  Google Classroom is an excellent platform rich in different forms of media that will help to bring the curriculum alive for students.  


I am currently on Maternity Leave with a return date of January 4th, 2021.  That being said, learning Spanish will still take place.  I have set up a Google Classroom for each Grade Level.   Each week the Spanish Teacher at CBS/MSI - Señorita Berrios - will post new content in my Google Classrooms for all students to access.  The content will follow the K-5 Spanish Curriculum, which Señorita Berrios and I co-wrote together this summer.  New weekly content and assignments will be posted by Monday morning and should be completed by the end of the day on Friday.  You have the flexibility to work on the weekly assignments when it works best for you and your family.


It is very important that after completing each week's assignment, that students remember to "TURN IN" the assignment.  By clicking on "TURN IN", it marks the assignment as done on the Teacher's side, allowing us to track student participation.


I understand how trying these times can be - balancing remote learning with your own work obligations.  I appreciate you taking the time to have your child(ren) stay up to date with Spanish class.  Hopefully it will provide a fun and much needed break from the core subject areas.  Learning another language is exceptionally important as it fosters academic growth across different curriculums.  I hope that your families can have fun learning Spanish together through this whole process. Kids have a unique ability to learn different languages.
