Feliz Día de Hallowe'en!
For your whole-class project tomorrow, each student must bring one object to add to our class altar in celebration of Day of the Dead. Remember that this day is a combination of European and Indigenous traditions, and represents the crossing of Catholic heritage with Aztec and Maya traditions in México. The objects you bring must pertain to the cultural tradition and/or the person who has died.
The class with the most decorated, culturally accurate, and meaningful altar as voted by ten teachers/administrators will win a class treat: donut party and cartoon day Friday with no evaluation. For any questions or concerns, please communicate with me either in person or via email.
For some ideas of artwork or objects to bring in, please check out the following links:

To prepare for your reflection work tomorrow, please complete the following tasks:
Please use the following Can-Do statements to guide your reflection on your growth in unit two. As with unit one, select five from the list below and begin to describe your growth within your digital portfolio file. Compile evidence from your Unit Two work and assessments, using photos and videos as necessary.
If you did not finish Unit One, please do not spend time now completing Unit One. Rather, spend your time working on Unit Two and come back to Unit One on your own time.
Remember that this is a very large and complicated assignment that will last all year long. Make sure you spend your time wisely now working on this in order to not fall behind.
Can-Do Statements (VHL):
Abajo les dejo las instrucciones para el proyecto individual. Acuérdense de que me tendrán que entregar el primer borrador el lunes. Este proyecto les prepara específicamente para la evaluación final de la segunda unidad.
Si quieren aprender más sobre dar indicaciones en español, investiguen este artículo. Hay mucha información y oportunidades para practicar.
Finalmente, hagan click aquí para leer un artículo que explica cómo diseñar un mapa bueno. ¡Esto es importante!
Below you will find a combination of statements that describe many of the skills and language abilities we have developed this unit. Choose five for which you have good evidence (i.e. photos, videos, audio clips, etc.), and describe your progress in your digital portfolio housed in our Google Classroom. Be sure to rely on more than your description of the activity, and include physical (or digital) evidence of your work.
You may come back to this at home or in your spare time at school (homework club, lunch, library time) to finish this. However, you are responsible for speaking with me if there are any personal barriers to your ability to complete this assignment. Once done, log into Google Classroom and submit the assignment called "Unit Four Digital Portfolio Check-In."
Uno de los objetivos de esta unidad es aprender vocabulario útil para describir los funcionamientos de la oficina de correos. Investiga los enlaces de abajo para escribir una lista de palabras y frases necesarios para escribir y hablar sobre el correo.
¡Nos vemos el jueves!
How will you be evaluated?
Your presentation video will be graded based on the updated workstation rubric. Because we use this rubric so often, I have renamed it as "Collaborative Work Rubric." View this rubric below.
Great job working and improving your collaboration in our work in los talleres. I continue to see you grow and improve in your communication skills in Spanish and in your mindsets. As we continue to improve our talleres and the ways we use our time to learn and grow, it's important to reflect. In my own reflection, I noticed that our rubric for talleres did not fully capture the excellent work and collaboration you all do each and every day. I have updated our Workstation Rubric, and have attached that document to this post. Be sure to download the new Workstation Rubric!
In order to help you reflect on your growth and engage in "Thinking about our thinking (metacognition)" from our habits and mindsets assignment, you will complete a self-evaluation for your work on this week's workstations. Respond to the questions below in English or Spanish, referencing both the physical evidence in your work and the ways you worked with your peers:
Finally, consider how you can study one concept you learned in Spanish class this week. It may be subjunctive or new vocabulary. Take 5 minutes and review that work or memorize vocabulary.
