If you have trouble watching a posted video, you can come to my room at 7:00a.m. in the morning Mon, Tues, Weds, Fri, and I will show it to you.  However, some days I will have meetings or other events going on so make every effort to watch the video before coming to class.
IMPORTANT***Weds, Sep 26: Make-up day for Unit 1 test is Friday, Sept 28 at 7:00 a.m.  Please make arrangements to be there if you missed any part of the Unit 1 exam.
 
Weds, Sept 19: Unit 1 test has been moved to Monday.  Below you will find links to the Unit Culture information that you need.  Make yourself familiar with the information.   Just scroll down to the two Unit 1 sections under "Avancemos a"....and "Comparacion cultural". You do not have to complete all of the activites, just make sure that you can answer questions in English about the subjects. That is how they will be presented on the test.  Also, there is a link to the Telehistoria Completa for the entire Unit.  Watch that and take notes as well.
 
18 Sept(Tues)- It seems I failed to include the link yesterday so here it is for tonight on noun-adjective agreement. Remember, you can always just go to "lesson links" on the left hand side of this page and access the videos if they are not listed here.  We will have an exam on all of Unit 1 towards the end of the week.
 
17 Sept(mon)- Tonight watch this video on noun adjective agreement and take notes.  Be ready to use it tomorrow in class.  Our next Exam will most likely be Thursday of this week.  Also, take time to go to Lesson Links in the menu to the left and watch the Cultural lessons for Unit 1.
 
13 Sept- Watch this video and take notes for class tomorrow.  If you didn't watch the vocabulary video from yesterday, go back and watch it and take notes as well.  Remember that tomorrow morning before school is the last opportunity to take the Leccion Preliminar test.

12 Sept- We have finished Lesson 1 of Unit 1.  You should by now have memorized the vocabulary and the grammar (i.e. ser, gustar, subject pronouns, survival Spanish) and understand how it is used.  Of course you can go back and revisit the lectures anytime you want here on this website.
Tonight's assignment-  Click on this link and then scroll down to watch Lesson 2 vocabulary and take notes.  http://www.classzone.com/cz/books/avancemos_1/get_chapter_group.htm?cin=2&rg=downloads&at=downloadable_video_files&var=downloadable_video_files  
 
Last chance to make-up Unit 1 Lesson 1 Test is before school Friday, 14 September in my room. 
 
 
10 Sept- Watch these videos on gustar and take notes on them for tomorrow.  Also, if you did not watched the video for 'ser' this weekend make sure you watch and take notes on it tonight.
 
7 Sept- Watch and take notes on all 3 links on 'gustar' which talks about 'liking' something. Also, I loaded the wrong video yesterday for the verb "ser".  The verb I loaded was 'estar' which also means 'to be' but is used differently.  We will learn about that at a later date.  I have corrected the link so please go back and watch that video as well.  Also, the verb 'ser' is in your textbook on page 37 for you to reference.  The verb 'ser' is very important and I will most likely check for your notes on Monday. 
 
6 Sept- Watch the link on the verb 'ser' which means 'to be' and take notes on it.
If you didn't watch the vocabulary video, go back and take notes on it as well.
 
4 Sept-We will begin Unidad 1 on Thursday, 6Sept.  Here is the vocabulary videos you need to watch Tuesday and Wednesday and take good notes on so that we can apply them in class. Concentrate primarily on Leccion 1 for now.  We will get leccion 2 later.  http://www.classzone.com/cz/books/avancemos_1/get_chapter_group.htm?cin=2&rg=downloads&at=downloadable_video_files&var=downloadable_video_files
