Bienvenidos A La Clase de Español
Señora Miriam Casanova
Welcome to Spanish class. My name is Mrs. Casanova, and I will be your child’s Spanish teacher this year. I am excited about the start of the new school year, and I’m looking forward to partnering with you to ensure your son/daughter has a successful year. Bellow I have provided information referencing the classroom expectations and consequences, grading system, tardiness, supplies and homework. Again, I am looking forward to working with you to provide your child a successful year of learning.
Thanks for your time and support.
Spanish I is designed to develop Spanish language reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. The course will be conducted primarily in Spanish. Language proficiency requires regular daily practice. The Standards addressed follow the “5 C’s” (Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons and Communities).
Spanish II is designed to develop students’ proficiency in the three modes of communicative competence:
- Interacting with other Spanish speakers
- Understanding oral and written communication in Spanish
- Making oral and written presentations in Spanish
Spanish II provides students with a review of grammar and vocabulary. They will begin reading literature and critical reading selections. Students will also make oral presentations and write assignments in order to promote their ability to communicate ideas in the Spanish language.

Students need to plan their time wisely so that assignments are ready to be turned in on due dates. Late work is accepted; however, students are expected to get missing assignments or late work information outside of the regular lesson time (not to interfere with regular classroom lessons).
Cellphones are a major distraction. If a student is using a cellphone during class, he/she will have the following consequences: 1st time is a warning; 2nd time cellphone will be turned into office and $10 fee; 3rd time cellphone will be kept until the end of semester.
Foul language will not be tolerated in class.
