Dear Parents and Guardians,
Advanced Spanish students took their midterm exams this past Tuesday. The students have now begun reading a chapter book written in Spanish. There are many benefits to reading in a second language including the following:
- boosting vocabulary
- greater fluency (seeing how language fits together)
- writing skills are improved by reading more often
- cultural connections
Beginning Spanish students are working on the next piece of their Adopt a Country Projects. Students have researched and are now creating interviews with an imaginary person from their country. Students will also be submitting a drawing representing one aspect of family life. This part of the project is due on Thursday, February 16th. Students will have had a week of class time to work on this project. Please help your child by proof reading his/her interview and giving feedback.
