What your CHILD can do to succeed in Spanish:

    1. Ask for teacher assistance when needed- I’m after school almost 
        every day
    2. Keep a well organized notebook
    3. Review notes regularly to avoid cramming when a test approaches
    4. Use their agenda planner daily to keep track of assignments
    5. Pay attention in class and hand in ALL assignments
    6. Review vocabulary for at least 10 minutes every night
    7. Create flash cards for vocabulary review – create a game!
    8. Go to my website under "extra practice activities" to review all grammar and vocabulary                           from each chapter                                                                                                                              
    9. Review with friends or older siblings


    What YOU can do to help your child succeed in Spanish:

    1. Help them to prepare a quiet study place at home that contains the 
        supplies needed
    2. Teach them strategies to organize their time effectively
    3. Check their agenda planners and/or the calendar on this site so you are aware of their daily homework 
        and future assignments
    4. Check their binders to make sure that they are completing worksheets
        and that they are organized (most teachers, including myself, will 
        give the students a list of what should be in there)
    5. Contact the teacher as soon as you have a question or concern about 
        your student’s progress as this can  avoid larger problems later on
    6. Set aside 10 minutes every night that are specifically for the
        review of  Spanish vocabulary
    7. Make language learning a part of your daily activities.  Learn along with your child!

    8. Make it fun by labeling objects around the house or 
        by playing matching, memory, or other card games with the vocabulary 
        flash cards
