spanish 1 year class dos mil diez y ocho

 

we have been approaching language and grammar through reading, and enjoying the fact that we can understand written text and decipher the grammar at the same  time.

we are reading the POBRE ANA book written by Blaine Ray

41mNMo8yweL._SX346_BO1,204,203,200_.jpg (348×499)

so far in two  and a half paragraphs we have learned

1- the phrase Tener+___+años+To+be+__+years+old+*(to+have+_#+years).jpg (960×720) used with the irregular verb TENER = TO HAVE

(to have years  (of life) as opposed to being years old)

7021507.png (490×153)

2- we have reviewed the verb SER = to be  , -“he identification verb” 🙂

verb-ser.png (1284×802)

3- new vocab

1- muchos problemas / pocos problemas

2- el pelo (hair)

3- largo / corto (long / short =length)

4- alto/ bajo (tall/short = height)

5- ella vive (she lives)

6- yo vivo (I live)

7- ojos azules (blue eyes)

8- el pelo castaño (light brown)

 

WE REVIEWED THE RULE OF UNO :

in front of a masculine noun the NUMBER UNO drops the o

1 boy = UN chico (NOT uno chico)

in front of a feminine noun the NUMBER UNO changes the o to an a

1 girl = una chica

 

4- and the fact that adjectives in Spanish

go after the noun (for the most part)

a normal girl = una chica normal

MUST AGREE IN GENDER AND NUMBER WITH THE NOUN THAT THEY ARE DESCRIBING

blue eyes = ojoS azulES

spanish 1 yr. class 28 de noviembre

lo siento for the lack of entries.

a lot has been happening since my last entry.

we have entered the world of GRAMATICA, where memorization and studying is a must. 

we have been going over the PRONOMBRES DE SUJETO or subject pronouns. I will upload any word doc that I have given out regarding the SUBJECT PRONOUN. related to the pronouns we had a PRONOUNS PROJECT ACTIVITY,where students took photos to show what the subject pronouns are. we also had an unannounced quiz on pronouns the day that the project was due.  In Spanish , subject pronouns are not always needed in a sentence, the verb tells us who the subject is , HOWEVER,  I ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO USE THE SUBJECT PRONOUNS when conjugating a verb. 

we also started learning what CONJUGATING A VERB is , what an INFINITIVE is . or first verb is the verb SER , which means TO BE. 

students are encouraged to always use the verb chart when conjugating.

yesterday we used MANIPULATIVES to review PRONOUNS, I can’t upload those as they are copyrighted. they are to be glued to your notebook.

PARA LA TAREA due tomorrow miercoles, 29 de noviembre : MAKE FLASH CARDS WITH THE FOLLOWING SUBJECT PRONOUNS (one side in Spanish / other side in English) a game called SLAP , will be played if you bring the flash cards , no flash cards , no game.

pronouns are

Singular Plural
1-     YO / I 1-NOSOTROS/AS / we
2-     TÚ/ you sing. informal    2-VOSOTROS/AS / you plural informal.
3-     ÉL / he

ELLA / she

USTED / you sing. formal

    3-ELLOS/ they (masc./mixed group)

ELLAS/ they (fem.)

USTEDES / you plural formal
