    • Students demonstrate understanding of simple spoken and written language presented through a variety of media in the target language and based on topics such as self, family, school, etc.

    • Students present material orally in the target language.

    • Students will learn basic Spanish concepts about family, food, greetings, etc.

    • Students will learn about the Spanish speaking countries and their locations.

    • Students will learn about holidays celebrated in said countries.



               Lesson Plans will include a variety of activities, student groupings, and types of interaction that will appeal to different learner interests and learning styles.

      I follow the Georgia Performance Standards for Modern Languages, which are based on the on the 5 C’s for language acquisition. The 5 C’s for language acquisition are:

    • Communication: Communicate in world language.

    • Culture: Gain knowledge and understanding of other cultures.

    • Connections: Connect with other disciplines and acquire information.

    • Comparisons: Develop insight into the nature of language and culture.

    • Communities: Participate in multilingual communities at home and around the world.

      These 5 topics will be visited throughout the year.


    • Students will be assessed orally/class participation on every visit.

    • Students will be assessed by classwork on every visit.

    • Students will be assessed by paper and pencil at the end of each lesson.


      The grades are based on total points, (oral quizzes, oral activities, class participation, class work, projects (when applicable) and homework (when applicable). Students will be able to accumulate points on every class visit, (twice a week). Grades will be posted on a weekly basis on Infinite Campus (IC).

      (when applicable)

      Homework is an extremely important part of learning, because it reinforces what we talked about in class. Homework will be assigned at least once a week, and it is always due on the following class meeting.

      Homework will be assigned a point value, if completed according to the directions, legibly and turned in on time; the students will receive the full points. If your child is absent on the day an assignment is due, he/she is responsible for turning it in to the Spanish room on the day that they return to school. Homework that is not turned in when your child returns to school will be considered late. Any forgotten/late homework will be marked "missing" and will be given a zero (0).


      Mrs. Leal will take attendance at the beginning of every class. During this time, students should be sitting and focused on their “warm up” work.


      Parents should feel free to contact me by email or by phone, with any questions or concerns about their child’s progress.
