World Language Gr. 6 Expectations



World Language Class    Grade 6

Madame Cambrola  2019-2020

 

            Bienvenue!  Welcome!  This year your World Language experience will give you some exposure to two languages: French and Spanish.   You will study French during the first half of the year and Spanish during the second half of the year.   Towards the end of the school year, after exposure to both languages, you will be able to make an informed choice about which of these two languages you would like to continue to study in the seventh grade and beyond.

            In this course you will begin to learn to be an effective World Language learner.  The course will teach you the basics of how to communicate effectively in French and Spanish.   You will begin to listen, speak, read, and write in both languages.  You will be encouraged to understand the culture of the Francophone and Hispanic worlds and how these cultures differ from American culture.  You will study the same topics in French and Spanish.  These topics include:  Greetings, Cognates and Language Development, Classroom Objects and Commands,  Numbers, Time, Colors, Days of the Week/Months of the Year, Weather/Seasons, Family, Clothing, Professions, House, and Food.  I hope that this year will be a challenging, interesting, and rewarding one for you as you begin your World Language experience.  Bonne Chance and Buena Suerte!  Good-Luck!

Homework Policy

Homework is a valuable tool in helping students become successful academically.  I assign homework because it reinforces what has been learned in class, prepares students for what will be taught in upcoming lessons, teaches responsibility, and helps students develop positive study habits. Homework will be assigned on a regular basis.  Students should ideally spend five to ten minutes each evening reviewing new vocabulary.  Students are responsible for copying down homework from the homework board each day.  All assignments must be completed and turned in when due.  Homework not turned in when due will receive a “0”.  Students are responsible for making up homework assignments when they are absent.  Assignments should be made up according to handbook policies.

Please make homework a top priority.  Encourage your child to ask questions in class to clarify an assignment.  This should eliminate any confusion at home.  Please provide a quiet environment for doing homework.  Praise and support your child.  And please contact me if you have any questions or problems.  My e-mail address is: jmcambrola@ashland.k12.ma.us.  Thank you!
