Welcome to Sra. García's class!

Español

Hello and welcome to Sra. García's page! I am very happy to be working with your students this year! This is my fourth year teaching 2nd grade Spanish at ASPIRA. I have been teaching in the bilingual classroom for 10 years and also have 3 years experience teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language as well as teaching English as a Second Language.

 

Thank you for visiting my page for resources to support your child’s academic growth in the Spanish language. As always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions via email or Remind. My email is [email protected] and our 2nd grade Remind group code is @laaa2nd.

 

Reading:

We have a new curriculum this year for Spanish literacy. It is called ¡Arriba la Lectura! We are very excited about this curriculum because it will streamline learning for all students K-5 and create an atmosphere of rigorous learning for our students. Please contact me for more information about our new curriculum.

 

General Spanish language practice:

Spanish karate: This is a program I started last year to help children do an independent vocabulary study, but make it fun! Everyone starts out as a white belt (cinta blanca). Each belt has a different theme such as colors, numbers, greetings, etc. For each belt they must complete the following:

  • Quizlet sets
  • Quizlet test
  • Speaking and listening test with Sra. García

This is an independent study with no due date. Students may work at their own pace and it is a great homework option. Ask your child what color belt they are and to show you what they are working on.

 
  • Duolingo: This is a free program that teaches students Spanish reading, writing, speaking and listening comprehension, so audio must be turned on and it is great to have the microphone enabled so students can speak. Students sign in using Google. Usernames are [email protected] password: student ID number !? Example: [email protected] pw: 123456!? Click on Sign in > Google.

I teach 2nd grade Spanish Language Arts. I have a passion for teaching children to read, write, speak and understand the Spanish language.

How can you support your child in Spanish at home? 

If you speak Spanish, speak to them and encourage them to speak back to you in Spanish. If you don’t speak Spanish, ask about what they are learning. What is a story they read? What are some new words they have learned in class?
