Welcome to the New Elementary Spanish Course, with Carol Henderson, on SchoolhouseTeachers.com!
December 2013 Lessons
(These post December 9 and December 16)
Welcome to Elementary Spanish class! I am so glad you have decided to begin your language-learning journey with me. Here are a few things you need to know:
Each lesson will be delivered in two-week cycles. Each two-week period starts with a Video Lesson the first week, followed by an On-Your-Own Review Lesson (“Homework”) the following week. Both of these have corresponding handouts to download. We will rotate between Video Lessons and the On-Your-Own Homework throughout the year.
It’s probably a good idea to have a small notebook to keep all the handouts together!
To recap the month of December: Lesson 13 has video and runs for December 9-14, followed by Lesson 14, an On-Your-Own Review for the week of December 16 and through the end of the month. I hope you enjoy a Christmas break the latter half of this month.
Where’s some of what we’ll cover: Lesson 13: You’ll learn a new noun-verb phrase, tienes, a new Bible passage in Spanish, los numeros 11 through 20 and various uses, and still more material. Lesson 14 is an On-Your-Own Review of this lesson.
A parent should follow along with the student as he/she watches the Video Lessons. This will allow parents to help with the On-Your-Own Homework the following week.
And one more thing—the questions on the Homework handout come straight from the Video Lesson. You can refer to the Video Lesson to correct your Homework!
Blessings, and enjoy our course!
