    Course Information:

    ¡Bienvenidos!  In Spanish I we will begin with a beginner chapter where we focus on basic everyday vocabulary used in the classroom.

    We will use a 100 sheet composition notebook everyday in class. 

    We will also use a workbook that accompanies the textbook.

     

    We will learn many new grammatical concepts, practice speaking and listening as well as writing.  We will learn how to describe ourselves, talk

    about likes/dislikes, food, clothing, daily routines, and much more.

    Keeping up with your work on a daily basis is essential for success in this class.

    Materials:

    • One 100 sheet (200 page) composition notebook (NOT a spiral)
    • A pen or pencil
    • A box of tissue
    • Cell phones (ONLY when teacher approves)
