4th, 5th, 6th Grade (Spanish I)

The 4th, 5th and 6th grade curriculum is based off of the ¡Cuéntame! curriculum. ¡Cuéntame! is based on personalizing the vocabulary and making the vocabulary into funny, bizarre stories that keep the students’ attention.

I had originally based my syllabus on the Paso a Paso 1 textbook but quickly realized that this antiquated form of language instruction was not engaging the students. My syllabus has changed but I still hope to start the beginner’s novel Isabela captura un congo by the end of the year. I will be providing an updated syllabus later this quarter.

Here is a link that explains the methodology behind ¡Hola Niños! and ¡Cuéntame! (by Becky Huppert: TPRS explanation)

  8. Hola! I am a new elementary TPRS teacher and found your blog. Would you share with me the catchy Days of the Week song your student referenced? I would be grateful to learn about any other catchy elementary school songs you use. Thanks! Laura in Beaufort, SC

  9. Hi Laura!
    Congratulations on starting teaching TPRS! I have enjoyed it SO much thus far!

    I think the song they might be referring to is the days of the week to the tune of the Addams family….
    lunes and there’s martes,
    miércoles and jueves,
    viernes, sábado,
    and then there’s domingo,
    days of the week,
    snap snap

    Best of luck in your endeavors! I now teach middle school, but let’s continue to collaborate!
