¡Hola! My name is Maria Murphy and I
teach Spanish to grades
4 through 8.
THIS MONTH, WE WILL DO THE FOLLOWING:
GRADES 4 & 5: This month, we will continue to practice vocabulary related to the classroom (La Clase). We will label items around the classroom and create index cards. This month's holiday includes "El Dia De San Patricio" (St.Patrick's Day). We will be listening to stories in Spanish and answer questions for comprehension. As always, we pray before the start of each class. The "Ave Maria" (Hail Mary) is recited.
GRADES 6, 7 & 8 : Our classes begin with prayer in Spanish. We recite the "Padre Nuestro" (Our Father) and "Ave Maria" (Hail Mary). The focus this month is on the verb "Ser" (To Be: for professions, nationality and physical characteristics) and "Estar" (To Be: for location and temporary conditions). We will also learn the verb "tener" (to have) and it's conjugations and usage. Students will also be introduced to "Present Progressive" endings (in English, we use "-ing")
I look forward to sharing my love of the Spanish language with my classes in the hopes of sparking an interest that will extend into the future.
