8th Graders: Answer Keys & Final Exam Information

8th Graders,

Your final exam will be given this Thursday 5/28 to 8A, 8B, & 8C. If you will be absent, at a music lesson, or vaudeville practice, and will miss the exam, you are to stay after school on that day and take it.

Extra help will be available after school on Tuesday 5/26 until 3 o’clock. This after school session is strictly review for the final, and you will not get bonus points for staying after.

I am including in this post the answer keys for both the present and preterite verb charts, as well as the answer key for the vocabulary packet. Please check your answers and make sure they match.

Remember: You should be studying from
1. Typed, Spanish 1 Review Packet (3 pages, double sided)
2. Vocabulary Packet, Chapters 6-9
3. Double-sided Present Tense Verb Chart, Regular & Irregular Verbs
4. Double-sided Preterite/Past Tense Verb Chart, Regular & Irregular Verbs

Any other questions while you are studying, please feel free to email me at

The key to doing well is to NOT cram!

¡Buena Suerte!

– Ms. Mirabella

8th Graders – Chapter 9 Test Correction!

8th graders,

I had an incorrect bubble colored in for one of the answers on the answer key. Due to my error, everyone will receive +2. If you look NOW on Aspen, you should see your current and final grade. Do not add two points to the grade you see now, because I have already fixed them. Re-takes are still available after school next week on Tuesday or Thursday!
