Dear Parent or Guardian,


The theme for the chapter is Los pasatiempos (Hobbies) and this chapter is called ¿Quieres ir conmigo? (Do you want to go with me?). Upon completion of this chapter, your child will be able to:


      talk about after-school activities

      extend, accept, and decline invitations

      tell when an event happens

      understand cultural perspectives on after-school activities


Also, your child will explore:


      the correct pronunciation of the letter d

      some Spanish words that are borrowed from English


We will also help students develop reading, writing, and speaking skills through the use of strategies, process speaking, and process writing. In this chapter, students will:


      read about sports cards and information on two golfers

      write an invitation to a special event





Check it out! Have your child write three sentences in Spanish about leisure

activities or sports that he or she enjoys. Then ask him or her what each sentence
