Unit Summary and Purpose

Mi Familia y Yo is Junior Spanish student’s first introduction to Spanish Language and

Culture. Introducing students to a new language can be difficult, so while introducing new
concepts and semantics, it is important to have a concept that is familiar to them. Students will
explore different words, phrases, and vocabulary associated with family in the Spanish
language. Students will also learn adjectives and verbs that will help them to construct basic
introductory sentences in the Spanish language.
Students will be exposed to a variety of different learning opportunities in this unit.
Students will be reading, writing, speaking, viewing, and representing a number of different texts
during this beginning unit. Students are encouraged to be open minded during this first unit of

Spanish classroom; creating relationships and learning about their families!
