We have been in class for a week now and I am really enjoying getting to know the third grade boys. In class so far we have talked about why we should learn a second language, how we learn languages, when we can use Spanish, and also what each student's goal is in Spanish class this year.  We are going to strive towards helping each other meet our goals.  They have agreed to help me meet my goal for my Spanish classes this year: to make Spanish class a safe place to make mistakes (mistakes are necessary in acquiring a second language, they are how we learn) and to make Spanish class a place where we learn AND have fun.  

Looking ahead, after practicing several commands in class and getting more accustomed to routines, we will begin adapting the science curriculum to Spanish class.  We will begin with the scientific method in mid-September, after the students fully understand it in English.  We will learn about scientists and discover what makes a scientist great - what do they do, what are they like, where do they come from, etc.  

I am thrilled to be teaching your boys and am anticipating a wonderful year of learning!
