This week we reviewed the homework (La Casa 1, Position Words 1 and 2), and took the second quiz on the La Casa vocabulary. There is a lot of vocabulary this chapter and the only thing to do is just memorize it. Students who are studying the vocabulary before class are doing well on the quizzes - students who do not study, do not do well on the quizzes. I encourage the students to create a memory sheet or flash cards, quiz each other, or use Quizlet online to help with memorization. In class, we used the position words with the home and family vocabulary that we have already learned this chapter to speak in Spanish about pictures of an apartment and a house. The students also used this new vocabulary to play a game called, "Where's the Cat?" in which they had to locate and describe the cat's location in Spanish. Next week's quiz will be on the verb tener. This week's homework El Verbo Tener 1 and El Verbo Tener 2 are due in class next week. Study study study those vocabulary words along with the verb tenses for tener!
