Week 29: March 7-11

 In ASL I, ASL II, Spanish I, Spanish II

Hello Families! I hope this post finds you all well. I am so grateful to be here at San Tan Charter School with your students. They are absolutely amazing young people! Spring break is nearly upon us and I am wishing you all a lovely time with your family. I wake up and count my blessings each day, starting with  my family, the roof over my head, the food on my table and all of my basic needs being met.

ASL 2: This week in ASL 2 students created and signed sentences with points of interest for the countries of Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cabo Verde, Cambodia and Cameroon. They also studied lesson 55 this week and should sign the practice sentences no later than tomorrow. When we return from Spring Break, students will complete 5 new country sentences and lesson 56.

ASL 1: This week in ASL 1 students completed receptive fingerspelling practice and worked on lesson 25. Lesson 25 should be signed no later than tomorrow. Any previous lessons no older than 2 weeks old should also be signed no later than tomorrow for half credit. When we return from Spring Break students will complete lesson 26.

Spanish 2: This week in Spanish 2 students studied their Quizlets for the current vocabulary and completed a Duolingo assignment on Weather. They also took notes on Direct Object Pronouns, completed a worksheet to practice these and took two Quizizz on them. Students had two attempts on each of the Quizizz. Tomorrow we will play Quizlet Live! Upon return from Spring Break we will learn about the Present Progressive and begin working on conjugating verbs in the Preterite (past) tense.

Spanish 1: This week in Spanish 1 students created and studied a new Quizlet on things in the classroom and verbs ending in -ar. They also created a new Word Wall and a Duolingo assignment called Describe. In addition to this they completed a worksheet to practice the new vocabulary. When we return from Spring Break, students will learn to conjugate verbs ending in -ar in the present tense and learn how to express frequency with adverbs.

Have a great Spring Break. Be safe and make good choices!
