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!
