¿Que tal?

This is a notice that I have updated our "Resource" page linked above with a link to a copy of our workbook that we use in class. If you ever need to finish workbook work at home or have pages assigned for homework, you should use this link.

The workbook is only accessible via a barrow county email address (ends in If it is not letting you view it, please make sure you are on a Barrow County account. 

When trying to find the correct page on the workbook, please make sure you reference the number on the workbook page itself instead of the page of the PDF reader. 

Hope this helps!

Starting our first chapter!

12:09 PM

This week, we are officially getting into the vocabulary of our first chapter, Para Empezar. We will cover a few different vocabulary lists this chapter, including:

  • Greetings / leavings
  • Basic conversation
  • Numbers
  • Time
  • Calendar (date, seasons, weather)
  • and body parts
This is our vocab-heaviest chapter, meaning students should be studying their vocabulary every night. This is also the only chapter where students will not make vocabulary cards with their vocab. Just because it isn't required, does not mean students are not encouraged to do so. has many different vocabulary cards already made to study with. If students look up "Para empezar," they can find many different flaschard sets to study.

Gracias for reading!

Bienvenidos! Welcome!

10:55 AM 0 Comments

Welcome to the 2018-2019 Spanish I course. This course is a Carnegie Unit, meaning it will count for high school credit. Students are required to take 2 levels within the same language for high school to get a college prep degree, which means that students in this class are getting a head start.

We will be covering 9 chapters this year with a test at the end of each chapter. We will have a midterm and a final as well. Students will be taking the same tests that Winder Barrow High School gives their Spanish 1 class. We will also have some of the same assignments. Students will also have an oral grade, which includes many projects where students must speak a rehearsed paragraph in front of me / the class.

Students are encouraged to stay for tutoring on Mondays and Tuesdays if they need extra help. I can also send extra practice home if needed. Studying flashcards at home is essential to have a good grade in the class. I have also included links under the "resource" tab that will help with studying.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with questions.
