7C Class Update: IMPORTANT!!!

Dear 7C Students,

Because we missed so many classes this week due to MCAS, we have yet again fallen behind 7A & 7B.
To catch up, we are having your binder check on Monday next week, May 15th NO EXCEPTIONS.
Please organize your binders over the weekend, and bring them home to do so. I am putting this announcement on the blog, as well as sending an email, so there are no excuses as to why you will not be ready for this binder check on Monday. If you would like, spread the word to your classmates today and tomorrow.
I have attached the checklist for you to follow to organize your binder. If there is an issue with the checklist (item we did not do/item in wrong place) email me, or bring it up at the beginning of class on Monday.
Organize!!!! See you Monday afternoon.
– Ms. Mirabella

IMPORTANT: 8A Students


I forgot to give you the question I will be asking tomorrow in the oral section of the test worth 4 points. When you come up to my desk, I will ask you the question,
¿Qué hiciste tú ayer?
This question is asking,
What did you do yesterday?

I am looking for you to respond with any answer (it does not have to be true), as long as your verb is in the yo form in the preterite tense!

Ex. Yo nadé en la piscina.
Yo fui a la playa.
Yo estudié español. 

Sorry for not discussing this today, it slipped my mind until Cora reminded me after class. Thanks Cora!
