la Práctica del Vocabulario de las PREPOSICIONES y la CASA
La Sra. Tamara has found a new online resource called BRAINEOS for making vocabulary card piles and giving you 4 fun ways to practice. She has created several flashcards categories from which to learn with four different games to play:

FLIP, a matching game.
FLIP reverse, read the answer and find the corresponding question
PAPILIO, a video game that you use a jar to ‘catch’ your correct answers and
MULTIPLE CHOICE, choose the correct answer from several choices
Enjoy practicing and memorizing your vocabulario de español!!

Los estudiantes del Grado 5 just completed their books called UN LIBRO DE LUGARES – a Spanish writing lesson. The objectives of this project were (1) to use the verb ‘ir’ ‘to go’ en español and know how the verb changes when using it with a variety of subjects (the people doing the ‘going’ somewhere) and (2) to learn and practice vocabulary dealing with places around a city and in your house. You can read the assignment here as a google document.
Here is the student’s work:

LA FAMILIA – las tarjetas de vocabulario …
You can print up your own vocabulary cards/tarjetas de vocabulario for ‘la familia’ by clicking here on the
Quizlet site for printable flashcards – you can use these for your own matching game OR write the translation on the back of each card. Feel free to LEARN as many new vocabulary words como posible (as possible) – challenge yourself by learning MAS!! Explore the site further and see what else it has to offer =)

También hay esta canción sobre la FAMILIA – escucha y canta con el video!

In 5th grade we are beginning a ‘mini-lección’ on the verb IR which means TO GO. This verb is usually followed by the preposition ‘a’, which means ‘to’ because when we are going some place, we are usually going ‘to’ that place! Watch the following video segments to clarify your understanding of how this verb is used and the different forms we use of this verb to go with the various subjects (‘doers’ of the action) in the sentence. We will be creating small LIBROS DE LUGARES to practice the verb ‘ir’ connecting it with a variety of ‘places’.

For the past couple of weeks the fifth grade Spanish students have been working either individually or in pairs on video-story telling projects.

The objectives of this project for students were:

– to utilize prior Spanish vocabulary and skills to create a basic story
– to incorporate geography and mapping vocabulary
– to include story telling elements – an introduction, small dilemma and resolution, character description, and conclusion and …
– to use proper pronunciation while acting out the story

The criteria: Title and authors, written story-line, recording of story, at least 6 pictures/drawings, list of newly introduced vocabulary, and an ending.

Students worked very hard on these and now have a new appreciation for the hard work and effort that goes into creating a video story. The entire collection of video stories can be seen here. Look for student comments and feedback at the bottom of the videos. Enjoy-Desfrutan!!

Los estudiantes del quinto grado (5th grade) have been practicing reading strategies in class these past couple of weeks.  Today we read a section out of our JUNTOS book called ¡Madrid me Mata! (Madrid kills me!) that presented several activities people from España do in Madrid.  Eating is a big actividad! We learned about Chocolate con Churros and la Tortilla Española – which is NOT similar to the Mexican tortilla we know to be like a chapati we eat here in Tanzania. No… Sra. Tamara made us our own Tortilla Española which is actually a Potato, Onion Omelet cooked in Olive Oil (one of Spain’s largest exports),  and is eaten in cafés and restaurants all around Spain.  It is also one of the most commonly eaten tapas – a small portion of food – accompanying a drink.                                                                                                                                                                                     We thought it was muy deliciosa and look forward to continue learning more about Spain soon!

Hola! Estos buenísimos videos son del mayo pasado hicieron por nuestros estudiantes del quinto grado (antes del cuarto grado).

Al ver todos los videos filmados siguen abajo.

These great videos are from last May made by our Fifth grade students (then fourth graders).

    The playlets are really interesting. I learnt French at school so I had to concentrate really hard to understand the Spanish. I was totally impressed by your authentic accents, the props and storyline in each clip. It was great to see how my class of 2010 are doing in Spanish. Well done! Extremely well done and bravo to your teacher for getting you there!
