Sra. Mock y sus clases …

Also under our ‘Amigos de clase‘ is the famous Sra. Maria Mock who has been a friend and colleague since 2004 when we taught together at Cresthill Middle School. We have collaborated on projects several times between our classes across the globe engaging our students in authentic intercommunicative opportunities. These projects have ranged from year-long ‘amigos de pluma’ (pen pal) exchanges, virtual introductions with libros digitales, and ‘in-person’ classroom presentations. Sra. Mock’s website is filled with helpful Spanish resources and an extensive selection of learning ideas. Check it out! We look forward to future sharing and exchange with one another and send a big ‘hola’ to Maria and her students! Sra. Tamara

Dillon Valley Elementary

Please notice that one of our links under ‘Amigos de Clase’ is to Dillon Valley Elementary; a dual-lanugage elementary school in Colorado teaching in both Spanish and English. Leslie Davison is a good friend and past colleague of mine who I collaborated with for many different Spanish units at the elementary level back in the 90’s. Her students at DVE are very active story tellers and have many ‘podcuentos’ that my students at IST can use as creative start-ups for their own ‘podcuentos’. We look forward to sharing our work with one another and send a big ‘hola’ to our future nuevos amigos!! Sra. Tamara

Hola! Soy la Sra. Tamara, your child’s Spanish teacher for grades 3, 4 and 5. This blog is to share about your child’s activities In Spanish classes. One of my goals is to integrate technology into the classroom while practicing our listening, writing, reading and speaking skills in Spanish. What better way for you to see how we use technology than to share what we are doing via ‘technology’! This is an opportunity for all of us to see first hand the creativity, culture and wide variety of communication that goes into learning a language. We hope to receive loads of comments and feedback!
