In 5th and 6th grade we are studying the verb ser, meaning “to be.” We are looking at how to describe people, places and things. We are using a variety of resources to help us learn some of the basics of verb conjugation, including games in class, flashcards, Duolingo, Sporcle.
We have also started working on passports. Once every two weeks the students are expected to show their progress towards passport skills. Please look at the Pasaporte section under 5th/6th grade for more information
Third and 4th graders are focused on the basics of introducing ourselves and meeting others. In third grade this month the students had the option of choosing a “Spanish name.” They are focused on “Profe Bob’s 4 important questions.” In 4th grade we are taking this a few steps further and working towards an “all about me style project” where the students will tell audiences who they are. 4th graders are practising talking about what we like and dislike. As a grade, we created a 3 page vocabulary list. Each student identified at least five things they like, and two that they dislike, as well as three other words of their choosing. These are their vocabulary list, allowing each student to create an individualized vocabulary list while we work on the same larger topic. Please look at the 3rd-4th grade section of this webpage for more information.
K-1-2 classes are starting to work on literacy, and noticing the similarities and differences of different languages. We are reading stories and playing games in an active curriculum. We aim to become familiar with our numbers, letter sounds, colours, shapes, and some basic questions and answers in Spanish. Please look at the K-2 section of this website for more details.
Vocabulary lists for all grades can be found in the helpful links and tabs at the top of the page.
