Pruebas y proyectos de mayo

Buenos dias padres y estudiantes,

this last month of school is full of tests and events for the students at CMS!

Here are some important dates that you don’t want to miss:

the semester classes cultural project and presentation is due between May 8th and 14th. I am attaching the rubric for the students to review during the week. However, the students are working on their projects during my Spanish class this week.

the final test for Pobre Ana for the 7th grade yearlong class is May 2nd and the SLO test is May 9th. On my blog students can find the study guide to practice (we only covered the first 3 Unit of the textbook).

the yearlong final test for 8th grade classes will be the 7th of May for my B day and the 10th of May for my A day. However, if the B day needs more time to study we can postpone it to the 14th of May (after the Disney trip). Again the study guide is on my blog to be reviewed.

The yearlong II class will present their Powerpoints about vacation and travel, Unit 5. They will laso take a quiz about few grammar topics of Unit 5 such as the present progressive and the object pronouns.

The yearlong I classes are continuing the reading of the novel “POBRE ANA” and learning how to conjugate the ER-IR verbs in the present tense. Furthermore, the students will learn about possessive adjectives in relations to the family topic of Unit 3. Please, check the POBRE ANA post with the link to the novel.

tarea y prueba de enero

Buenos dias padres y estudiantes,

for the last week of January the semester classes will learn about numbers and cognates. The students will also take their first test for Spanish class which includes the following topics: greetings, commands, alphabet, colors, shapes, numbers 0-20, and cognates.

My yearlong classes will start chapter II of “Pobre Ana” with a focus on reading and listening comprehension. The students in my Yearlong I classes are learning about family and relationships from chapter III of the textbook Descubre. The students in my Yearlong II class will learn about travel and vacation from chapter V of the textbook Descubre.

Adios y hasta el lunes!

la tarea de enero

Buenas tardes padres y estudiantes,

the first two weeks of enero (January) my semester classes are learning the Spanish alphabet sounds, greetings/goodbyes and commands; furthermore, we are learning about how people greet each other in different Spanish-speaking countries through cultural videos and reading activities.

My yearlong classes are complementing the grammar topics of the textbook Descubre┬á with a novel, “Pobre Ana”, that we are reading in the class. I encourage my yearlong students to buy this simple and short novel by Blaine Ray, as it will help improve reading and comprehension of the language.

Enjoy the long weekend and nos vemos el martes!
