The Drop Dead Date for first quarter was yesterday. I'm very proud to report that there are only three grades that fall below a 70% in my classes!
Eighth graders have completed their Day of the Dead unit with an in-class essay. They will be continuing onto more vocabulary and reemphasizing verbs learned thus far.
Spanish 1 will be working on dates, days of the month and months of the year for the next couple of weeks. They will be doing this in conjunction with relearning present tense and looking at stem changing verbs in the present tense.
Spanish 2 will be working on weather and will be watching weather patterns here at home and at places abroad. They will be reemphasizing preterit and imperfect tenses while expanding their vocabulary.
Spanish 3/4 has started work on their final project of creating their own planet, country and city in the manner of a pop-up book. We've begun with geography vocabulary and will be looking at creation myths to help them in their final project.
8th grade: none
Spanish 1: finding the dates of the following days in Spanish
1/1, 2/14, 3/17, 5/5, 6/24, 7/4, 8/14, 9/16, 10/31, 11/23 (A Day only), 11/25 (B Day only), 12/24, 12/25, 12/31
Bonus if you name the actual holidays in Spanish
Spanish 2: 7 day forecast for your city + presentation NO NOTES!
Spansih 3/4: generating ideas for your final project
