Welcome to an exciting year at Inman ! The spanish team is excited to be teaching your son/daughter this year. We wanted you to know a little bit of our background.

Approach and Methodology As natives and experienced teachers, we bring new innovative ideas to get your son/daughter to love and learn Spanish. The textbook we will be using is “Avancemos".
This textbook not only will engage students with games, videos, conversations and a chance to record themselves, but also includes online students’ textbook and exercises. This year they will learn many different topics and vast information about Hispanic culture.
It is our goal that they will be able to understand, communicate and understand the culture and the target language by the end of the year! J
Approach and materials needed
The materials needed for Spanish class are a 3-ring binder with 4 dividers ( vocabulario, trabajo en clase, tarea, , cultura y diversiones), a lined composition book, line paper, blue or black pen, markers, colored pencils, and a pocket dictionary. These materials are required to be brought to class everyday. As you know, learning a second language requires effort and time. The students will have homework every day and it is imperative for you to make sure they do it since practice makes perfect....”
Wish List :) :)
Colored paper, white paper, dry- erase markers, paper towels, hand sanitizer, Kleenex, pencil, sharpeners, construction paper, crayons, markers, glue, acrylic paint (all colors).
