!Hola, hola, hola de nuevo!

27th September 2012


Hello again Ray family!


This week in 4th grade class we worked with greetings, with numbers and with Spanish speaking countries. We are learning where all those countries are located. 

For the third homework, the studetns have to write the name of the country in Spanish in a empty map I provided of the Americas.

Please, por favor, check the spanish binder  with your child; I am encouraging them to keep their binders organized, it will be much easier for them to follow the class, to follow their notes and also they will feel proud of themselves.

Por favor, check the PAGE homework/tarea to see the description of the three homeworks/tareas we have so far.

24th September 2012

! Hola  a toda la familia de Ray!  We have started the new academic year. We have two world lenguages this year: Spanish and Latin. All fourth grade students were able to choose the language they wanted and both classes are  very balanced.

Last Wednesday 19th I started my 4th grade class. These are basic guidelines for the class:

1-    Each student will need a binder for the class where assigments, homeworks, notes and photocopies must be kept.

2-    Each student received a Spanish book from me  ” !Hola! !Viva el español!”. This book must be kept in the classroom and turned back at the end of the year.

3-    I will be integrating Social Studies with my Spanish class.

4-    Students will received a grade based on:

        A-      HOMEWORKS     30%

        B-      ASSIGMENTS      40%

       C-       DAILY WORK      30%

       For homeworks, students were given today a photocopy were they will monitor all the homeworks we have to do and all the ones they have completed (ask your child about it). In this blog , under  PAGE, click on HOMEWORK/TAREA  and there you will find the homeworks with the title of each one and the date the homeworks were given.

      I will have another page for ASSSIGMENTS /  TRABAJOS  where you can click and see the description of the assigments / trabajos and the date-lines for them.

     If  you go to the section  LINKS  you will watch videos, pictures, readings, learning tools like dictionaries  that, in one way or another, will have  connections with the Spanish class and the values of the  class. Right now you can watch two awsome videos  and you have two online dictionaries.

These days we have been working with greetings in Spanish , hispanic speaking countries and geographic vocabulary in Spanish.

I really recommend you to check your child’s Spanish binder once a week to know what we are doing in class and to see how is your child doing.

If you need to contact me, this is my e-mail:

I will add a new post very soon for those students that chose Spanish at Ray University
