Dear Family:

We are off to a great start! We just completed our preliminary section of our text and are about to begin Unidad 1, of the level 1 ¡Avancemos! program. It focuses on authentic culture and real-life communication using Spanish in Miami, Florida and San Antonio, Texas. It practices reading, writing, listening, and speaking, and introduces students to culture typical of Miami and San Antonio.

Through completing the activities, students will employ critical thinking skills as they compare the Spanish language and the culture of Miami and San Antonio with their own community. They will also connect to other academic subjects, using their knowledge of Spanish to access new information. In this unit, students are learning to discuss food, art, family traditions, favorite activities, and descriptions. They are also learning about grammar—the verb ser (to be), the verb gustar (to like), definite and indefinite articles, and noun-adjective agreement.

Please feel free to call me with any questions or concerns you might have as your student practices reading, writing, listening, and speaking in Spanish.

Yours in Christ,

Mrs. Beasley
