Spanish Class Happenings
From Sra. Gasque: Week of 4/27/15
I always talk to my students about 80% being the "magic number". Anyone with an overall grade of less than 80% or anyone who made less than 80% on a quiz or assignment are who I especially want to seek out tutoring. Come with a plan/goal and we will make it happen - bring your previous assignments and quizzes along to help!

Hola to the Spanish 2 Crew! The students were given scripts to personalize and they chose their teams last Friday. We are pretending to be in a restaurant and ordering food - I am looking forward to some great performances, memorization is a requirement! Students who were absent were absorbed into groups and most students contacted their teammates so they could get a head start. We are still working with Direct and Indirect Object pronouns and incorporating them with the food vocabulary. Everything we do this week will help prepare them for the exam Friday. This is another opportunity to show mastery of these concepts. Let me know if you have questions!
