In danger of failing If you are in danger of failing, I have reached out to you already! Do not wait until after I post grades to the report card to bring me all your late work. It will not be accepted then.
NOTEBOOKS You may not be on the same page in your notebook as others. Some of you write bigger. Some of you did not get the large, plastic notebook as I requested. Do not become fixated on page numbers of others. Label your table of contents so that YOU may find what you need! You need to get tape and notecards before next week. I will no longer be providing these items.
I have said these things a MILLION times but for those that forget… I cannot memorize vocabulary for you! If you do not take the time to memorize the words/phrases, you will not be able to use them in context. You cannot tell me what you eat for lunch if you don’t know how to say “eat” and “lunch”. Yo no soy diccionario (I am not a dictionary!). I you what you need. Studying helps you determine what you did not understand. If you do not study, you won’t know which questions to ask. “I don’t get any of this” is not a valid statement here! “I need help applying time in a sentence with food” is the type of thing I want to hear. Now we have a baseline. Tutoring is NOT to re-teach the unit’s lessons. It is to enrich and reinforce. Come with questions! Review your vocabulary BEFORE you come! I am here to facilitate your learning. I am here to help YOU, but you must HELP YOURSELF! Be accountable for your own learning and the results will benefit you! “I’m just not good at Spanish” or “I’m too busy to study” will not get you where you need to be! Be proactive! Make a plan to be better and stick to it!
CLASSROOM RULES/PROCEDURES reiterated Be open-minded! “That’s stupid” is NOT appropriate, especially in a class focused on culture. NO CELL PHONES! NO FOOD! NO GUM! Progressive discipline will be administered. If you are absent, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to get what you missed THE DAY YOU RETURN. That has not changed from Day 1! “I was absent” is RARELY a valid excuse! Too many people are missing classes and using that as an excuse for failure. Exams must be made up within 5 days of your return. I cannot wait weeks and weeks to return tests because students aren’t making them up in a timely manner. NO RESTROOM privileges the first or last 15 min. of class nor when I am giving notes/instructions
I gave an exam review: Over half of the class did not do it. I gave a replica of your speaking: Over half of you did not do the assignment. I give exact sentence structures necessary to write paragraphs. I upload PowerPoints, Youtube videos, and links to help on my Wiki. I give you the vocabulary and pronounce it for you. I also gave a site that helps if you forget pronunciation. I offer tutoring. I give you EVERYTHING you need to be successful! WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO to ensure YOUR success?!
SPEAK SPANISH! I will respond less and less to English We have established a lot of vocabulary to comprehend basic instructions and convey basic ideas in the target language. Please STOP asking if it has to be in Spanish! Unless the directions say otherwise, the answer is “yes”. There is NO reason for someone to ask me during the Speaking portion of the midterm for SPANISH class, if it has to be in Spanish The more you practice, the better you will be!
Hay 4 temas en esta unidad La hora/La rutina diaria La comida Las materiales escolares La casa
La hora/La rutina diaria Qué hora es? Es/Son A qué hora es… What time is it? Es la una/Son las dos At what time… A la/las Use “es” with 1 o’clock or any variation of 1.

Materiales escolares Qué tiene en tu mochila? Yo tengo (un lápiz y un cuaderno…) Qué necesitas para la clase de… Yo necesito (una calculadora para la clase de matemáticas)… Make sure you are using the definite article when you want to say “the” and the indefinite article when you want to say “a/an/some” You must MEMORIZE the appropriate articles; however many (not all) follow the simple rule that if it ends in “-a” it is feminine and “-o” if it is masculine. If you want to make it plural, just add “-s” if it ends in a vowel; add “-es” if it ends in a consonant. Exception: if it ends in “-z”, change the “z” to “c”, then add “-es”. El cuaderno > Los cuadernos; La carpeta > Las carpetas; El lápiz > Los lapices
La casa Qué cuartos hay en tu casa? Cuántos pisos hay en tu casa? Con quién vives? Qué haces en cada cuarto? Qué cosas hay en cada cuarto?
Verbos importantes Most of these verbs are regular. If not, it is marked with * (check your notes for the conjugations) EstudiarHablar EscucharMirar LeerLimpiar Hacer*Comer CocinarBeber We have other verbs too! Can you think of any?
Palabras de transición Your sentences should flow from one to the next. Using words like: and, or, first, later, next, are important when making cohesive paragraphs in writing and speaking! Yo como el desayuno antes del colegio Primero, yo tengo la clase de historia. Entonces, yo voy al gimnasio para la clase de educación física. Después, yo necesito hacer la tarea ANTES Primero Entonces Después
Ownership ‘s does NOT exist in Spanish! Use “de” to show ownership My parent’s room is not “mis padres habitación”…. It is “la habitación de mis padres”
