Dear fifth grade families:

My name is Señorita Quigley and I am your child’s Spanish teacher. I am very excited for the year ahead of us! Our units are as follows:

Unit 1: Spanish Speaking Countries
This unit is about Spanish-speaking countries and many of their features.

Unit 2: Finding Out About Others
Students will learn to describe themselves and others, as well as feelings, likes and dislikes.

Unit 3: Let’s Eat!
In this unit we explore food vocabulary and the differences between the United States and Hispanic countries in terms of meals and culture.

Unit 4: My Community
Students will learn about communities, as well as how to ask for and give directions.

I strive to engage your child in hands-on learning of the Spanish language, the same way we learn our native language as children. I expect that we will have a lot of fun this year and your child will learn quite a bit of Spanish. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
