S is for... "Ser (+ adjectives)"

April 24, 2017

 

This week we are learning about the letter "S" and we're learning about the verb "Ser" (To be) as we learn to describe ourselves and our family members with adjectives.    The letter "S" is pronounced "Essay."  We are also learning about Santiago, Chile and Sammy Sosa.  We are learning about conjugation this week and how it is important to make our verbs match their subjects.  We are reviewing family members and body parts by writing descriptions of people.  We can learn a lot of adjectives at once because there are so many adjectives in Spanish that are cognates (interesante, sociable, artistico...)  Words like these can quickly expand our vocabulary.  Ask your student to describe things around the house and different people they see.  We can't forget about Señor O and Señora A- when we are describing masculine things, our adjectives end with an "o."  When we are describing feminine things, the adjectives end with an "a."  Everything has gender in Spanish- even tables and books and pencils, etc.  All adjectives must agree in gender with the nouns they are describing.  Also ask about Tierra del Fuego, Argentina and America Ferrera. What sports are popular in Santiago?  Which sport did Sammy Sosa play?

 

On the website, students can watch the letter "S" video and play the "Adjetivos" game.  It would also be great to go back and review the family members and body parts.

 

Coming up next week... T is for "El Tiempo" (The weather).
