Today in class we learned some different ways to say goodbye. Notes are shown below.
HW: Read pg 12, "México"
Today in class we spent time doing virtual tours (see below) of two Spanish cities: Madrid and Barcelona. We compared and contrasted the geography, landscape, and architecture of the cities. We discussed some cultural difference between the two, and saw the most important sites of each one. The students seemed to enjoy it, so perhaps we can do more virtual tours of other Hispanic countries as we study them.
¡Sorpresa! 5th grade had class today. I have an extra period open on Mondays, so some weeks we will have the opportunity for double Spanish :)
Today in class we reviewed some of the niceties we learned last week, and reviewed the homework that is due Thursday. No one was penalized for not having homework done today, since students did not know there would be class today. We also read about Spain and completed reading comprehension questions.
