Track 1 Advanced Spanish have taken their Final Exit Exam. This grade will be used to calculate their final class grade but continue to check SPAN online to make sure your child has caught up with any missing assignments.
Tracks 2,3,and 4 Advanced Spanish will finish studying Chapter 7A next week and review for the exam. Letters have been sent home to parents with information and study guide sheets. Please sign in and I will check off at school that you have read the information.
Beginning Spanish classes will continue to work on Chapter 1A from the Realidades workbook. All students have been given copies of the required vocabulary and have practice worksheets that they can use at home.
Advanced Spanish – It’s hard to believe that we are quickly approaching the end of the school year. Track 1 is almost through all their material and we will begin reviewing for the Spanish Exit Exam by next week. and the Final is scheduled for May 15 and 16 during class periods. I will be giving the test since it will involve listening and speaking parts in addition to writing and multiple choice questions. A reminder that final grade for Spanish 1 will be based on 40% – 1st semester, 40% – 2nd semester and 20% – Final Exam. If students pass the final with a 70% and pass Spanish 1 they will receive High School credit.
Tracks – 2, 3, 4, will be taking their Final Exam on June 12 and 13.
Hola, Here we are in 4th quarter and school will be over before we realize. I was told that my grades were not showing in SPAN so I have checked everything I have in my end and they should be available to viewing sometime tonight.
Advanced Spanish classes had a wonderful ending to La Comida unit. We tried many different Latin American foods during the luncheon they had before track out. Cuban Sandwiches (their favorites) arroz con gandules, platanos maduros, yucca, y pollo a la parilla. Ask the students about it!
We are now working on our last two chapter sections, 6A and 7A before we beginning our year review for the final exam. Explanation of grading and Final Exam dates will be sent home soon by separate letter.
Beginning Spanish classes are finally getting to start working from their Spanish textbooks. We are starting to work with chapter 1A shortly and students have been reviewing for a cumulative test shortly. Please encourage your child to speak Spanish whenever possible since talking in Spanish is usually difficult because students are afraid of making mistakes. Practice makes perfect!
