Welcome Back! ¡Bienvenidos!
¡Hola! My name is Odette Farrell and I am originally from Puerto Rico. I believe that a second language is paramount for success in this day and age. I teach my students to understand the logic of the language so even if they are short on vocabulary, they can figure out quite a bit. My classes are infused with computer activities so students will become quite proficient with technology too. I created a website for each class with many resources to practice vocabulary as well as Google Classroom pages where I will post assignments and necessary links. It is very important for students to complete all classwork and homework as well as studying for the few tests scheduled. I am always available to help students during class or after school. Feel free to reach out to me if you should have any questions
¡Hola! Mi nombre es Odette Farrell y soy original de Puerto Rico. Esta clase cubre español básico incluyendo gramática, lectura, y cultura. Las computadoras se han convertido en material esencial en mis clases asi que los estudiantes aprenderán mucho de tecnología también. Tengo páginas de web para cada clase que enseño con muchos recursos de práctica y páginas de Google Classroom donde pondré las tareas y enlaces necesarios. Es muy importante que los estudiantes completen todo el trabajo asignado, las tareas, y que estudien para los pocos exámenes que doy. Yo estoy disponible por correo electrónico:
6th GRADE: Introduction to the Spanish language for basic conversation about likes/dislikes, family, clothing, and school. Students will be introduced to Spanish grammar rules in order to create simple sentences and a final project.
7th GRADE: Students will continue to acquire vocabulary (school, food, common activities) while learning to create simple sentences following grammar rules and verb conjugation. A final/placement test will be administered to determine eligibility into 8th grade Advanced Spanish.
8th GRADE: Everything comes together in 8th grade as students continue to communicate preferences in regards to home life, chores, and vacations. Students in the Advanced Spanish class work at a faster pace to complete High School Spanish I curriculum. A final/placement test will be administered to determine placement into high school.
