Week 7: September 6-9
This week although short, has been busy. The electives teachers met this week to discuss the Arts Showcase. The Showcase will take place on Saturday, October 29th and all Spanish and ASL students will be expected to attend unless they are excused by a parent for an extenuating circumstance. The Showcase will feature art from the classes of Miss Tomasek, songs and dances by Show Choir, Spanish and ASL classes, and culinary delights prepared by Mr. Ramos and his Culinary students. More to come in a flyer soon!
ASL 1: This week in class students completed Lesson 6 and did some receptive fingerspelling. Next week students will review the Lesson 1-6 practice sentences, review story 6 and complete Lesson 7. We will also be learning to sign the song Remember Me from Encanto for our Arts Showcase in October.
ASL 2: This week in class students completed Lesson 36 in addition to completing country sentences 26-30. Next week we will work on Lesson 37 and country sentences 31-36. We will also be learning to sign the song Remember Me from Encanto for our Arts Showcase in October.
Spanish 1: This week in class students learned about the verb ser which means to be. They learned that the acronym DOCTOR can help them remember it’s uses. The acronym stands for description, occupation, characteristics, time, origin and relationship. Students also studied their Quizlets and had a vocabulary quiz this week. They also learned a song called The Ser Song that is to the tune of a Jason Mraz song. The song can help them to memorize the conjugations of the verb. A link to the song is provided below for your enjoyment!
Next week students will learn to us the ser verb specifically with physical and personality descriptions. They will also learn a new song called ¿De donde es? This is one of two songs that they will be singing for the Arts Showcase in October.
Spanish 2: This week in Spanish 2 students created a Quizlet for the new chapter and learned about stem changing verbs. They also completed a Duolingo assignment on this concept and a Quizizz as well. Students also learned the song Dos Orguitos from Encanto today. They will be singing this song in the Arts Showcase in October. Here is a link to this fun song!
We will work on a packet for stem changing verbs and irregular verbs next week.
Have a great weekend!
