Spanish Class Update 9/18/15

que pasa

Hola!  Spanish classes have been going very well!

Elementary students have an update on AscendSMS following our Friday Spanish classes each week.  Please see your daily notification email for details of what we do each week in class.

Middle School students have all been working on verbs, at various levels.  Each class (5-8) will have a quiz on Monday, September 28:

  • 5th Grade:  Subject Pronouns
  • 6th Grade:  Subject Pronouns and the irregular verb “ser”
  • 7th Grade:  Present tense conjugations of regular -er/-ir verbs
  • 8th Grade:  Conjugating Irregular Verbs (ir, dar, estar, ser, tener)

We also have a 5 word vocabulary quiz each Wednesday.

Any middle school student who would like any extra help or tutoring should see Mrs. McCormick during recess.

Also, if you are looking for a recap lesson to re-explain something we learned in class, you might look at the following website:  It has many videos on various topics of grammar and vocabulary.

pic for postThis week we will begin by testing in Literature.  Students will test over the reading strategies of monitoring comprehension, making connections and visualization.  Students will also be tested over personal narratives and other notes taken in Literature.  The test for all grades will be on Monday, September 14th.

Students will also complete a test on Tuesday, September 15 over Unit 2 Vocabulary.

We will also be working on punctuating dialogue and will begin looking more closely at nouns (common and proper, concrete and abstract, compound, plurals, and possessives).

We will continue doing daily paragraph editing and daily reading comprehension.  We will also discuss the word “infer” and what it means.

We will complete our personal narratives and will begin looking at expository nonfiction.  We will also begin Unit 3 Vocabulary.
