My Students

My students are part of a diverse community that values education. These young people choose to sign up for my class because they truly want to learn Spanish.

Our school community thrives on embracing the many cultures around us, including the Spanish-speaking cultures.

For many of my students, English is their second language and Spanish is a third or fourth language.

My students know why it is important to learn Spanish, but many of them are unaware of the richness of this culture. I have supplemented the curriculum with cultural materials to enrich the students' understanding and motivate them to continue the hard work of learning a new language.

My Project

I will place the cultural items, including the balero toys and Guatemalan friendship bracelets, in the class store. My students earn "wasserdolares," my own classroom currency, for participation in class.

Students conduct business transactions completely in Spanish as they trade their "money" for fun and engaging items.

They have the opportunity to practice their new language skills in a realistic way, that is also motivating and exciting for them. Students quickly learn real life phrases such as "¿Cuanto cuesta?" and "Quisiera . . ."

This project allows me to provide a greater variety, quality, and quantity of products for our Spanish class store. Thanks for supporting our Spanish language learners!
