¡Beinvenidos a todos! (Welcome all!)

It is a pleasure to be working with the families of Head Middle School this year!  I look forward to getting to know all of our students and community.  This year in Spanish you should expect to hear, speak, read, and write Spanish everyday!  Learning a language often involves trial and error or making mistakes.  Don't worry! Just practice in class and at home and you´ll more each day.  Remember participation is essential.--Dr. Huth

Standards for the week of 8/5/19-8/9/19

Modern Languages---Year One (Beginning) I. Standard Number 1 (Goal One): Communicate in a Language Other Than English Standard Rationale: This standard focuses on interpersonal communication. A primary goal of modern foreign language instruction is to enable students to interact verbally with each other. Students of non-European (Romance) languages may face greater challenges in this area than do students of languages more closely related to English. Learning Expectations:

1.1 In the target language, engage in conversations, provide and obtain information, express feelings and emotions, and exchange opinions. Performance Indicators: The student is able to

• express likes, dislikes, and personal preferences (e.g., people, events, favorite activities, food);

• express needs, feelings, and ideas related to everyday situations (e.g., personal response to a movie, agreement or disagreement on a topic);

• exchange information about general events (e.g., classes, meals) and plan future activities (e.g., place, date, time); • ask and answer information questions.

1.2 Understand and interpret both written and spoken forms of the target language on a variety of topics. Performance Indicators: The student is able to

• use vocabulary for a wide range of topics (e.g., animals, weather, geographical concepts; categories such as numbers, shapes, colors, size); • give and follow simple instructions (e.g., in games, with partners or groups, giving commands suggested by a picture).

4.1 Demonstrate understanding of the nature of language through comparisons of the language studied and their own. Performance Indicators: Students are able to

• recognize “borrowed” words and cognates;

• be familiar with similarities and differences in sound system and pronunciation;

• identify basic grammar differences (e.g., gender, noun/adjective agreement);

• demonstrate awareness of formal and informal language;

• identify idiomatic expressions in both languages;

• recognize the difference in time and person as related to verb forms.
