Volume 2 - Week of August 31
We're moving on!
We wrapped up our review unit on Friday/Monday (depending on which block your student is in). There was a quiz basically everyday for students and myself to get a good idea of where we stand as far as Spanish I material goes.
There are many students who still need to do some work to master/remember some of the grammar and vocabulary. Please check in with your student and see how they're doing. I am frequently available in the mornings during zero hour to help anyone that needs it, and will be available during Smart Block starting next week.
Unit 2 - School and Social Life
We're headed to Costa Rica!
Homework and Studying, demystified
Quizzes happen frequently and are not announced in advance. The best way to be prepared is to always assume there will be a quiz.
Each day, students will know which group of vocabulary to focus on. For example, today in class we covered Group 1 Vocabulary. That is a set of words and phrases that are grouped together on their yellow vocab sheet. When they do their homework tonight (or tomorrow night), they know that the focus of the worksheet will be Group 1. They also know that they should study that same group of words until they are able to say them and write them in Spanish, from memory. Flash cards are super helpful!
