This week, we will add some family vocabulary words to our practice of basic greetings and conversational skills. We will also practice saying the vowel sounds correctly in Spanish (ah, eh, ee, oh, oo) and we'll take a trip on "The Vowel Roller Coaster!" We'll be acting out some role play scenarios with puppets this week to practice various family member vocabulary. We are also continuing our study of Panama by taking a closer look at the Panama Canal. Did you know that over 25,000 people died trying to make this important shipping shortcut? We'll look a little more closely at the mechanics behind the locks (or "boat elevator") that the boats pass through. You can check out some cool videos about it on my website. Look on the videos tab under "Cultural Videos."
Some great things to practice this week are: Our opening "Hola" song, Unit 1-2 video under "Descubre el Espanol," and "La Familia" video. HomeFUN will begin this week. Check your email for a homeFUN list of activities. You can also find the list under "Quizzes and Worksheets" on my website.
