SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Spanish SL Strand, Unit 9, Grade 3, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Spanish for grade 3 is presented in this teachers' guide to the instructional and assessment activities of unit nine. The function of this strand is to help provide the English-dominant child with the structures and vocabulary needed for effective communication in a bilingual environment. Instructional activities are designed to help the child build confidence through formal and informal language experiences. The focus, objective, and materials for each activity are given in Spanish and English, with teacher instructions given only in Spanish. Activities are oriented toward the basic theme of the nation as a community. Seatwork and group activities include presentation of the alphabet, numbers, months of the year, the concepts of opposite words, and the formation of derivatives. Specific Spanish structures explored include the comparative structure "mas...que", the use of "cuando", "porque", "donde", "pensar que", "usted", "si" to express condition, and are developed in stories presented in each of the kits.
