State Testing began Tuesday, continued Thursday and ended Friday.

Classes that met after testing learned to dance the Bachata, the Salsa and the Merengue.  A dance test followed.


Progress Reports go out Friday.  Progress reports will have lower grades than usual since we began this 9 weeks with 55 Language Practice Points.  We didn’t meet for regular classes this week to gain more points, but there will be many opportunities to gain more in the coming weeks.  Also, students can come in before or after class in order to gain more points by speaking with me in Spanish using our latest vocabulary.


We had a quiz Thursday of last week.  I returned it the next day so that students could make changes if they wanted to do so.

NOTE:  One trait of a good student is that after the test, s/he will look up words that s/he forgot during any test and then learn those so that s/he won’t be behind.  Successful students review words that we are working as well as old vocabulary, every day for about 15 minutes.  That’s all it takes.

Jugamos Bingo con los números.
