Spanish Forms for Teachers Aug 24, 2007
If you are looking for basic forms that are already in Spanish this is the book for you. If you are looking for vocabulary and phrases for oral communication with parents this is not a good choice at all.
Great help May 10, 2007
We have only a few Spanish speaking students at our school, and this has been a GREAT help in communicating with their parents. It's an excellent resource to have on hand!
Worth the money! Jul 28, 2006
I teach Spanish and ESL/ELL. I often translate materials for teachers who do not speak spanish. I am always looking for good resources to help me with those not so common phrases, as well as, education specific vocabulary. I was intrigued by the title of this book and decided to give it a try despite the lack of content information provided on this site. I am actually pretty impressed and feel that if you know even just a little spanish this resource would be very helpful. It specifies that it is for grades K-8 and I would agree. The book is divided into several categories,such as, beginning of the year, school schedule, grade reports, math skills, special events and others. Within each category are several letters that might be sent home for various reasons. Each one is written in English and then followed by the same letter in Spanish. They are pretty general, so they would be helpful in a variety of school settings. Many of them are very simple such as, there will be no school tomorrow, others are more indepth such as a sample grade report. And as I mentioned earlier, if you know even a little about the language you could add and change any letter to fit your purpose more completely.
