Welcome to Sra. Pedrami's Spanish I

Bienvenidos!
 
I have been a teacher for over 30 years and have taught students from pre-k to college level. I fell in love with teaching while working a summer job at an English for Spanish Speakers camp. It was supposed to be a temporary job but it became my passion. Just like I have taught all ages, I have also taught Spanish and English depending on which part of the world I was. Yes! Traveling is my other passion. Now my family and I have made Conroe our home and I am very happy to be at Brabham MS, not only because I have been welcomed with open arms but because it is also very close to my new house.
 
I hope parents will pay a visit to one of my classes and learn along with their children some more Spanish!
Tutorials for Spanish are on as needed basis. I am usually available in the mornings until 7:30 A.M. and Monday, Tuesday and Friday until 3:15 P.M.

Reading test

 

Dear Parents,

It looks like finally we are back to normal weather wise. Last week we started the new vocabulary of places around the city. This week we will continue and add location expressions with the verb estar (to be in a place). We will also review classroom objects since they lend themselves to practice the prepositions.

Enjoy the warmer weather!

Projects presentation

Dear Parents,
 
This week students are presenting their three projects from the choice board. There are two major grades and two daily grades involved in these  presentations. Please check my previous post for the rubric and a description of the project. Some of the activities are interactive so we all will enjoy practicing Spanish with activities created by the students.
 
Thursday we will practice conjugations and correct sentence structure with the white boards.
 
Friday will be a short day so we will have some vocabulary activities such as Spanish Scrabble and the very popular PARA game.
 
!Feliz Navidad y Prospero Año Nuevo!

Choice board

Dear Parents,

This week we have quite a few activities going on. Benchmarks will change our schedule on Monday and Tuesday so I planned an activity that will repeat Monday and Tuesday of this week and Monday and Tuesday of next week since we will have different classes each day. We will watch a short video, Episode two, of the story that accompanies the text book. The video reviews classes, time, colors and clothing. Students will complete work related to the video.

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday students will work with a partner to complete three activities from a choice board of nine activities.

Have a great week!
