Bienvenidos!



§Binder: (Due Wednesday, August 22, 2018)
v Binder will be graded and is required to be kept neat, organized, and intact for the entire year. There will be a lot of papers handed out in this class.
v Those who keep it according to requirements should have an easy grade to cushion overall grade.
§  Must be durable and last entire year (at least 1” width)
§  8 Dividers (preferably with pocket) for each chapter
§  8 Cheap dividers or a way to divide notes from assignments for each chapter
§  Recommend reinforced paper for homework and notes so it will last
§ Book Deposit: $ 6 (No later than August 27, 2018)
v Due before student will be issued a textbook for the year which goes toward cost of wear / replacement of book.
§Internet access:
v From time to time, there will be assignments given that require internet access. It will be your responsibility to ensure the assignments are completed by the due date, even if you do not have internet access at your home or the internet fails. Late assignment policies will take effect. School or public library may be options.
§Dictionary:
v Spanish 1: It is recommended that you have a paper dictionary.
v Spanish 2: You are required to have a paper dictionary.
v If you want me to purchase the dictionary for you, please bring $5 no later than Wed, Aug. 23, 2018.
v Google translate is a free app for mobile devices and is great, but it should be limited to single word searches as dependence on the translator (which of course is easier short-term) will limit your ability to learn and will end up affecting your overall grade long-term.
§Writing utensils:
v Graded assignments:
§  Pencil (required)
v Class notes:
§  Your preference of colors
§Blog/Homework:
v Homework will be graded, and can help cushion your grade rather easily. Assignments will be given both in class and on the blog. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK IT DAILY FOR ASSIGNMENTS DUE! Spanish class is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Homework will be assigned on those days. It will be due the next class, unless otherwise instructed, so for Wednesday you will have until the following Monday to have it done. In years past, Wednesday homework was sometimes forgotten as there are quite a few days in-between Wed & Mon. Exception will not be given for forgetfulness. It is your responsibility to be organized and ensure assignments are ready on time.

                        Homework on test review DUE
                        Begin Chapter 3

Week 1/8 & 1/10

Monday 1/8/18: SNOW DAY

Wednesday 1/10/18: Review for TEST Chapter 2 that will be on Wednesday, 1/17/18.
Homework for test review:

We have already done most of this work previously, but it was so long ago and these concepts are where most of the items being tested will come from. (If you keep an organized notebook labeling the exercises as you complete them, you should be able to find these to review instead of completing them again!)
  • Finish translating "Mascotas" on page 78 & answer questions 1-4 on page 79.
  • Pages 80-81: Sections 1 (family members vocabulary), 4 (conjugation of "tener"), 5 (possessive adjectives). 
  • Page 86: Sections 2 (conjugation of "ser" & "tener"), 3 (switching from plural to singular throughout the sentence)
  • You will need to be able to change sentences from singular to plural and vice versa, as well as masculine to feminine and vice versa. For example: Sing => Pl- El gato es rojo. => Los gatos son rojos. Masc => Fem- La chica es alta. => El chico es alto. 
  • Also for the test, make sure you are able to complete the exercises (previously done) on pages 67 #4, & 69 #7. 
  • Make sure you know the vocabulary for the chapter (family members, housing, other such as "hay"), both on page 85 & on Quizlet. There will be a paragraph for translation. 
  • Know the opposites on page 87, #5.
  • Know conjugations of verbs: ser, tener, & estar. (Check out Quizlet)
  • REMEMBER: Spanish builds on itself and there will be concepts you have learned from previous chapters especially being able to change gender of nouns and from singular to plural. You may wish to check out page 50 from chapter 1 for review of this. You will also need to be able to change verb tense when changing from singular to plural. (Ex: El arbol es alto => Los arboles son altos.)
