I can’t believe third quarter is almost over! Every year gets faster and faster.
Just wanted to give you another reminder before the final quarter. Please remember everything can be made up or redone up until a week before the quarter ends. I always have multiple parents and students who approach me after the end of quarter deadline. I am going to have to start saying no. I feel like I am doing everything I can to remind students (especially), but also the parents about the last day to turn in work. I am going to have to say no to any work turned in after that. The students get three weeks of warning (it is written on the board and expressed verbally every class period). I also send out parent and student e-mails along with the class page updates. Please put this on your calendar now for fourth quarter so this doesn’t happen to you. Accepting stuff at the last minute, makes grading and finishing grades more difficult for more. I will be here for you 100% when I am working but if I take stuff home last minute, that often means I grade at home. When I am home, I want to be able to give 100% to my family. I hope you understand.
Spanish 1 has a vocab test on the following Monday (20th and 21st). The speaking test will probably be the class period after that. Spanish two will probably have a test next Wednesday and Thursday (22nd and 23rd). We will be moving fast the last quarter. We have more to learn and tons to review to get your students prepared for next year. I will continue to send out updates to help you stay on track of anything. Please let me know how I can help you and your student.
Remember all late work is due by 3/9/17.
You can use websites like Quizlet and Spanish dictionary to study vocab. This site is specifically set up for Spanish 1 by one of my students www.spanishdict.com/users/1306444/ComparteTuCabeza.
Spanish 2 has a test on the 3rd (A) and the 7th (B).
Thank you all for the Christmas wishes. I definitely felt appreciated. I hope you all had a nice break.
Spanish 1 and 2 will have a test on January 18 (Wednesday for A days) and January 17 (Tuesday for B days).
I am having a homework packet problem in my Spanish 1 classes. Students are given plenty of time to finish homework in class. If they don’t, it then becomes homework. Many students are simply not finishing it. I gave them a warning 2 classes ago that they would get one warning before serving detention.
Thanks for all you do!
Spanish 2 will have a review day with a test at the end next time to avoid having them take a test after the break. The dates are Dec. 15/16. These scores will not go on the grade book until next quarter. Let me know if you have any questions :)
