    To All Ayala Families  

    Greetings, Ayala Students and Parents! 

    In our classroom, we adhere to learning strategies based on current brain research. 

    To see results takes patience and understanding how the human brain wires itself for language: 

    • Conversation is our most essential learning strategy. 
    • Conversation is our most significant catalyst for learning. 
    • Conversation precedes all other activities so that we integrate & consolidate new language. 
    • Conversation produces a natural flow of language and a comprehensible accent *over the course of time.* 

      

    Course Objectives 

    Students participate in Class Conversations that call for listening, drawing and reading, with various responses, normally in the new language. 

    Culture       All students grow in their knowledge of the new culture. 

      

    Materials 

    Dark-ink pen, one marble composition notebook & loose leaf paper 

    Classroom Procedures 

    • Appreciate others. 
    • Try not to offend or harm. 
    • Honor individuals & relationships. 
    • Make a situation better rather than worse. 
    • Ask questions when there is confusion or a problem. 
    • When possible, do all of the above enthusiastically and creatively.

    The Four Skills for Lifelong World Language Learning 

    • Reading allows us to combine listening and speaking. 
    • Writing combines all four language skills. 
    • Listening is the first learning in our classroom. 
    • Speaking is natural for those familiar with the correct sounds. 

    Student-Teacher Agreement 

    1) I have read, understood and agree with Ms. Munoz's Course Expectations. 

    2) I understand that sustaining the 'Class Conversation' (listening and responding) is the primary objective of this class.

    "I, the parent/guardian, have read and understood Ms. Munoz's Expectations.  I recognize that the primary method of learning is that teacher engages the student, and vice versa.  I understand 'Class Conversation'  involves the new language or non-verbal communication, no English."
