Welcome to Spanish with Mrs. Brewster! 

I am Blesssed to be teaching at HVCS this year. We will be focusing on Spanish words and phrases, and exploring the cultures of Spanish speaking countries. Students will have a new unit of study each month including topics such as Colors, Numbers, Family and Food, just to name a few. 

Each grade will also learn about a different Spanish speaking country every quarter. Students will take their suitcase on a global adventure where they will learn facts and culture through study and hands on activities. Studies will include facts, culture, and geographical location of the assigned country on maps and the globe. Each quarter will end with a craft relating to that specific country.

Learning a new language can be intimidating! I am a strong believer that hands on activities and pretend play are amazing tools which aid in making language learning fun and engaging. I look forward to an exciting and memorable year with all of you!

September Happenings 

This month our unit of study will focus on food and quantities. Students are learning how to say the names of common foods we eat every day. They are also learning Spanish numbers 1-10 or 1-15 depending on grade level. Our unit will end with a vocabulary review quiz, and a shopping activity at our HVCS Farmer's Market! 

September also began our travels to Spanish Speaking Countries. These lessons include geography, history, and culture. This quarter each grade has the following country:

1st Grade: Argentina

2nd Grade: Bolivia

3rd Grade: Chile

4th Grade: Colombia

5th Grade: Cuba

Looking Ahead

In October, students will be learning the Spanish names of colors through various activities. The unit will conclude at the end of the month with Spanish lessons and crafts based on the book The Day the Crayons Quit by Drew Daywalt.
