By now, you should have your spring semester final project complete. If you don't have it done, you can use today in class to work on it. HOWEVER, the following activities are still due when we get back to class on Monday!
You're going to set up a couple of important study resources for yourself in preparation for our final exam. The final will cover UNITS 5, 6 AND 7 (see below or study guides in your Drive). TODAY, you will: -- Create your own Quizlet list of 25+ vocab words you need the most work on (you'll need a Quizlet account ... sign up at quizlet.com) -- Create your own final exam study guide by copying and pasting sections from our Unit 5/6/7 study guides that you need the most work on into a Google Document. Copy at least three vocab sections you need work the most on and at least two grammar sections you need the most work on. >>>>>IMPORTANT: When done with the document, move it into the assignment folder with your name on it (using the folder button at the top or by dragging/dropping in Drive).
This will be for a grade. You will get credit for completing these two activities.
WHEN YOU'RE DONE, find the share link (see screenshot below) and copy/paste it into the "turn in links here" file below. Then copy/paste the link (using blue share button) from your Google Document into the "turn in links here" file below. >>>TURN IN LINKS HERE<<<
Finish all the questions you can today and click "Submit". If you don't get done, remember which question you finished last. Then just complete another form later with only the questions you didn't get done the first time.
TEST TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) -- 20 vocabulary matching (from Quizlet list below), 20 questions to show what you understood about the story (40 questions total). Be ready!

ASSIGNMENT FOR WEDNESDAY, APRIL 30 -- Read chapter 6 (p. 26-29). Make sure you read the entire chapter before answering the questions on this form (click here). When you're done with the questions, practice with the Quizlet list below -- words from the entire Pobre Ana book. (You will probably see some words that will help you later on in the book!) If you have missing work in the list above that you haven't done yet, work on that today if you have time left over.
March 17: In Google Drawings, create a drawing like this. Draw two lines to divide it into four sections. In each section, include a picture of something from the where you live vocab and A COMPLETE SENTENCE (not just the term) in Spanish using the vocab term. Finish them by class time tomorrow and Mr. Miller will show you how to turn them in. (Note: the example below is a Spanish 2 example. Your pictures and sentences will be different, but the idea is the same.) When you're done, go to the "6th pd live pics embeds" document in the edit folder. Copy your embed code there (File - Publish to the web).
You’ll be creating an autobiography in Spanish this week – a book all about you! Each day in class, we’ll add new parts to the book. Your book will have the following information:
Monday: Introduction to yourself (name, origin, birthday, personality and appearance)
Tuesday: School (Classes you have, which ones you like/don’t like, who the teachers are, what you use in the classes)
Wednesday: Friends and family (name, origin, birthday, personality and appearance)
Thursday: Haves, needs and wants (clothing, items, etc.) with description
Friday: Activities (where you do them, how often you do them, whether you like/dislike them, days of the week you do them, sports/jugar?)
Monday: General likes and dislikes (add additional information, where/with whom/why/etc., possession)
Tuesday: Your choice (use content from study guides from this semester)
Wednesday: Finish up (decorate books, finish text you haven’t done yet, etc.)
-- Use Google Presentations to create the pages of your book. Each page must contain at least 40 words and an illustration (photo, drawing, etc.) The book must have a cover (the first slide of the presentation) with an illustration, author’s name and a title. -- Make this project look nice! This book is a reflection of yourself. Give yourself a fine reputation to live up to. Use a consistent layout. Use quality images. Write in neat, accurate Spanish. -- On Wednesday, we will embed our presentations onto a page where they all can be viewed. Thursday will be a day where we read each other’s work and do an activity with them. RUBRIC 60 points: Content (all pages included, each page has correct number of words and an image) 60 points: Spanish (accuracy, use of vocabulary, use of correct grammar) 30 points: Presentation (overall look of book, neatness, general appearance) TOTAL: 150 points
The blog post: In a post of 100 words or more IN ENGLISH, write your thoughts on the following: -- Why do you think the quinceañera is so popular in Latin America? -- Do you wish a similar celebration (celebrating a boy/girl's passage to adulthood) existed in the United States? Why/why not? -- If you were planning a similar "passage to adulthood" celebration for yourself, what would you include in it?
