7th grade links!

Hola 7th graders,
As you know, we have had two jam packed weeks working hands on with our clothing, colors, schools supplies, and numbers vocabulary! We made the MSMS school blog! So proud of all of your hard work and enthusiasm recently. Keep up the good work.

Also, we have a quiz this Friday 1/31 on -AR verbs in all 5 forms (yo, tú, él, ella, ud., nosotros, and ellos, ellas, Uds.). I have made some QUIA activities and flashcards for you to use during the week to prepare. Extra help is also available Tuesdays and Thursday like always!

El Desfile de Moda – 7th Grade Fashion Show!

To continue with our section of vocabulary on clothing, 7th graders were given the opportunity to construct their own outfits for the runway! Using Chapter 3 vocabulary words on clothing, students wrote a short paragraph in Spanish describing their outfits. These descriptions included colors, cost, adjectives, and of course where their outfits were best suited for! Students took turns reading each others’ descriptions while their partner walked the runway. Students were graded on grammar, pronunciation, and creativity. Room B7  transformed into a catwalk for sure!
