10 sentences using Chapter 2 vocabulary (5 with ser and 5 with tener)
no additional homework on Monday
This week we reviewed the homework and took the second quiz on the verb tener. We are throwing out the scores on the first quiz, because they were not terrific ... so we're going to spend an extra day helping the students to memorize the verb tenses of tener (to have). Tener is a foundational verb in Spanish - it is used very frequently, so I encourage the students work very hard on learning it. Next week's quiz will also be on the verb tener - this time translating the Spanish words (yo tengo, tú tienes, él tiene, nosotros tenemos ...) to English words (I have, you have, he has, we have ...). This week's homework is to define any words that are not known on the Chapter 2 vocabulary list and write 10 sentences using that vocabulary (5 with the verb ser (to be) from Chapter 1 and 5 sentences using the verb tener). Homework is due in class next week. Study study study those verb tenses for tener!
