¡Fíjense qué gran amor nos ha dado el Padre, que se nos llame hijos de Dios! ¡Y lo somos!
-1 Juan 3:1
(2018-2019 St. John theme passage)
As summer is now in full swing, I hope you have made time to relax and enjoy moments as a family! When the summer days get long and you are trying to fill your schedule with leisure activities, please consider using the resources below to brush up and build upon the Spanish you already know. In addition, please feel free to share other resources for learning Spanish you find with me so that I may upload them to this web page.
We shall once again utilize the free application "Seesaw" when classes resume. Seesaw serves as a digital portfolio which will follow each student year after year. Some of the benefits gained from its implementation are that students are able to see the progression of their language acquisition, families are connected to what is happening in the Spanish classroom, and it makes it possible for me to save instruction time for individual assessment by grading the uploads outside of class. Furthermore, the students appreciate having an audience of loved ones for their academic accomplishments! God has blessed them with the opportunity to learn another language and He has given them the skill set to achieve! (Please download your child(ren)'s projects before the new school year commences in order for them to be saved for your own enjoyment for years to come.)
Check out these fun websites to keep your child(ren)'s brains engaged throughout the school year:
Duolingo; (I created individual accounts for all third-eighth graders before summer vacation. If your child has misplaced his/her username and/or password, please contact me and I will send them to you.)
This list is just a start. Youtube also has many great thematic videos on various topics in Spanish.
God's blessings on your summer!
