Senora Penagos has been a Spanish teacher in the United States for close to 10 years.
Senora Penagos teaches Spanish on both campuses and also art on Sacred Heart Campus.
The Spanish program that Senora teaches is designed to introduce students to the language and cultures of the Spanish-speaking world. Students will demonstrate course-appropriate outcomes in the four basic language skills of speaking, listening comprehension, reading, and writing. This is accomplished by daily routines where students build their vocabulary, review grammar, gain confidence through structured and unstructured conversations, readings and activities.
Each grade program focuses in specific age-appropriate objectives and goals to learn the Spanish language. The program for young children integrates flash cards, puppets, audio CDs with conversations, and songs. The puppets encourage children to speak the language and act out the behaviors. The program for older children integrates Smart Board use, audio CD’s with conversations, contemporary songs and activities which students easily identify.
Students in Spanish meet twice a week grades K-3rd. Three times a week grades 4th and 5th and four times a week grades 6th through 8th.
The art program for grades K through 3rd is one forty-five minute period per week. Senora designs activities appropriate for young children that integrate the fine arts, art elements, and fosters self-esteem. Throughout each project, students will be introduced to concepts of color, shape, lines, prints, patterns, sequencing and sculpture.
