Written by Maria Angeles Salvat. Posted in 4th-5th Grade Intermediate SAL

In SAL 4th and 5th Grade we are learning the past tenses in Spanish!

First, we compared objects that we use now and how they were in past.For example, mobile phones:




Now, we are creating a folder with regular and irregular verbs and also we are having fun by playing the game LA OCA because they are  using the new verbs and the new tenses!


¿Qué me gusta? ¿Qué no me gusta?

Written by Maria Angeles Salvat. Posted in Kindergarten SAL

In SAL Kinder and 1st Grade we studied food and activities we liked and we don’t like.

First, we created a puppet with the structure Me gusta (I like…) and No me gusta (I don’t like). Then, we introduced activities that we can do in our free time. With the puppet they have to decide with activity they like and which one don’t.

After that, through a song we reviewed the food and the structure Me gusta and No me gusta.

Finally, in groups they create a poster with the things they like and they don’t like.

¿Cómo soy?

Written by Maria Angeles Salvat. Posted in 2nd-3rd Grade Intermediate SAL

2n and 3rd graders from SAL intermediate have been studying the parts of the body. We reviewed the vocabulary and we used two songs:










Then, they learned how to describe their selves by using adjectives: tall-short;thin-fat; strong-weak…

Finally, they learned vocabulary based on their character traits (intelligent, brave, kind…).

After learning all this, they made their first writing without guidance and I am proud to say that: they did it!

Now, they are working on the description of a character they create and we are going to keep working on that to learn how to describe other’s.
