¡Bienvenidos Héroes! My name is Señora Barnaby and I will have the honor of being your HWES Héroe Spanish Teacher this year! I have been a teacher of Spanish for many, many, muchos years! I love Spanish and learning all languages, too. I have traveled to Spain many times-including on tours with my students!- and I even lived there for a semester during college! I have taught Spanish to students of all ages, and I have even taught French! Being in the Spanish classroom is like a second home to me. I hope that you feel the same way and are just as emocionado as I am to learn español.
HWES Héroes, this year will be amazing! We will use a variety of actividades to learn español. What are your favorite ways to learn a language? If you are not sure, ¡no te preocupes- do not worry! It is most common to learn language through exploring the world around you, hearing the language in songs, talking, and música- as well as using your other senses to soak in the español, like acting, creating, and eating- mmmm!
¡Olé! Look here at some of the topics we will learn in español this year, depending on your grade level:
Everyday Conversation- Greetings & Farewells, Socializing, Asking Questions, Sharing Feelings, Manners, & Informal Commands
Family & Community
Health, Wellness & Feelings
Physical Environment- Weather, Seasons, Time, Animals & Planets
Shopping- Clothing, Stores & Money
¡Super! Learning español is possible, exciting, and wonderful! All you need in class is to listen, pay attention, use español, follow instructions, and show care and compassion for yourself and your class!
¡Bravo! HWES Héroe, you are now ready to learn español here with me! See you soon, ¡hasta pronto!
