This is week 2 of the letter "C" and we have a lot to talk about! We are learning to pronounce the letter "C" (say- hard "K" sound when followed by a, o, u and soft "S" sound when followed by e or i), and we are learning about Cuba and Cristina Saralegui. We are learning to count and to talk about the date in Spanish. Every day in Spanish class we will say the day of the week and the date in Spanish. We are learning lots of questions like, "¿Qué día es?" (What day is it), "¿Qué mes es?" (What month is it?), "¿Cuál es la fecha?" (What's the date?), and "¿Cuántos?" (How many?) Unfortunately, since we always have Spanish class on the same day of the week, the students are limited in their ability to practice all of the days of the week. Be sure to ask your students what day it is in Spanish every day. Most students already know how to count to 10 in Spanish, but we're learning the importance of not saying the numbers in order. Students can practice saying their phone number, address, and age in Spanish. Whenever you see a number- try to say it in Spanish! Also be sure to ask about Cuba and Cristina Saralegui. Who was the leader of Cuba for a long time? What is Cristina famous for?
This week, students are bringing home some pages to practice numbers and dates. Now our Spanish is starting to build as we can describe things by both number and color. Keep practicing conversational skills and encourage your students to speak Spanish to any Spanish speakers they may encounter!
Coming up next week... Ch for "Cuerpo Humano" (Parts of the Body).
