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.

Presentación de vocabulario

After having studied the vocabulary flashcards a little bit, can you figure out what most of the words in the video/audio presentation mean? Go to the online textbook page 92 on and click on the DVD/Audio icon.  Watch/Listen to the presentation of vocabulary. Make a list of whichever words you find difficult.  You should spend extra time on these when you study.  ONE list only for credit. 


Go to the online textbook and find "A Responder" on page 93.  Listen to the audio several times while attempting to write down everything 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.
