Irregular Preterite

Vamos a empezar

In order to be eligible to come up to the center table to earn calaveras, each day you need to have completed at least three independent practice activities in your notebook. Check your answers using the answer keys provided at the front of the room or in the teacher's edition (especially for "answers may vary"). Show me your progress when I call up your group number. Please remember that I do not expect perfection I do, however, demand effort.  Learning a new language takes lots of work, lets get started.  Vamos a empezar.

Go to the online textbook and find "Actividad 14" on page 71.  Listen to the audio several times while attempting to write down what you hear.  Don't be discouraged if you don't catch everything, become aware of the fact that each time you listen you catch more and more.  After at least three attempts check the transcript  in my teacher's edition.  Please ask me for access. 

Your turn to chant on Recap

After practicing with me at the center table, go to  Recap online and record your group chanting the irregular verbs in the preterite like you saw in the video above.
