    Vocabulary - Teaching vocabulary to foreign language students is vital to language acquisition. Vocabulary instruction affects students ability to participate in both social and academic routines. Words allow speakers to extend their understanding of the world around them. In addition, words allow access to completely new worlds. Whatever a student’s achievement level in a particular area of study, be it minimal, moderate, or advanced, vocabulary instruction will also promote further learning.
    Throughout the year, students will be learning many new vocabulary words; some from the textbook, some from the chapter books, some from music, and others from context. In this page we are going to keep an ongoing, year around, vocabulary list.

    Grammar - Grammar doesn't have to be studied when you learn your mother tongue as a child. Children learn it in conversation with their parents or teachers. However, learning grammar when studying a foreign language is an essential tool. Grammar is the study of words and the ways words work together. It is very necessary to use the language in context when communicating with others in the target language. Below are the grammar concepts we will be studying and/or reviewing this year. There are links to activities that can help the students with the usage of those grammar concepts.
    As we study the following grammar concepts, students will write explanations of the different concepts, add links and activities. If the grammar concept is a new tense, students will be conjugating the verbs from the chapters in those tenses. Students will compile a resource page that will help them throughout the year.
    The links bellow explain the different grammar concepts through songs or videos.
    Students should watch the videos or listen to the songs and practice each grammar concept.

    Lección Preliminar – Repaso
    During the preliminary lesson (review lesson) students review the most important grammar concepts they learned during level one (adjectives, ser vs. estar, gustar, regular and irregular present tense). The review takes two weeks; students practice the grammar concepts students and take a baseline test which they are expected to pass.

    Field Trips {virtual.jpg}{field_trip.jpg}
    Virtual field trips - For our 21st century learning, virtual field trips have became a very popular (but still new) way of learning about the world without leaving the computer. This method of "traveling" can extend the value of a traditional field trip to levels that were unimaginable years ago. It is very valuable because it can take any student and even teachers in the classroom to places that are either too far away to travel or too expensive to visit. It is also very beneficial to school systems, because these field trips can be worthwhile to students without going over the school budgets. However, a virtual field trip has to be done correctly; it is not sufficient to simply visit an interesting website, it has to be done correctly. If the true value of the field trip is researched, the virtual field trip can be even more educational than a traditional one.
