Join Tutoring this Wednesday After-School from 3:40 - 4:15

I welcome all students to join for tutoring and especially encourage anyone who has had questions on topics in class, received anything less than 80% on an assignment or if you KNOW you could not complete an assignment due to lack of understanding.... come on over!

Expectations: Bring a snack (but don't leave a mess) , know what you want to work on and have your incomplete classwork, returned quizzes, etc. And last, arrange your ride home. Let me know in advance if you anticipate you will need more time... I will work with you!

Oh, bring your patient hat - you may have to share me with others!

We learned about the diversity of celebrations and observances in the Spanish speaking culture. Now we are expanding that knowledge by adding related vocabulary of food, gifts, places, etc. We are also learning how to add complexity to our writing by using Object Pronouns! It is not all new knowledge as we often use these devices but just haven't discussed the grammar rules for them. Below is a list of what we plan to cover this week!

Monday: Celebrations Unit Package, Translate pg. 150-151 and complete Preguntas Personales

Tuesday: Read and write summary for pgs. 152-153 and complete Actividades 1-4 on pg. 154-155

Wednesday: Introduce DOP’s, do activity

Thursday: Practice DOP’s

Friday: Quiz

Whew! Block classes move so fast! We are now applying the vocabulary and grammar we have been introduced to, towards discussing travel and activities in the past. A project is coming along soon and there is lots of memorization needed as well. This is best done by daily practice and use.

Monday: Review Work Packages, check Reg. Preterit, Orthographic practice work

Tuesday: Fab 5 preterit review and activities
