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 in 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):
In preparation for your final assessment, you will practice the skills you will need to be successful. There are 3 activities options for this weekend's homework. You are responsible for turning in one for on Monday. If you complete the two others, extra credit is offered for each for double the points.
Por favor, responde a la siguiente pregunta en un comentario a esta entrada del blog. Usa tus apuntes del fragmento de audio que escuchaste para responder:
¿Conoces los platos que Roberto y Rosa pidieron? ¿Conoces platos con los mismos ingredientes? ¿En qué son diferentes o similares? ¿Cuál te gusta más?
¡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 comparisons or new vocabulary. Take 5 minutes and review that work or memorize vocabulary.
Buenos días chicos,
I am writing to remind you that you food diary is due tomorrow. Remember that homework and class preparation work are two different things: Homework is practice meant to stay outside of class. Class preparation work is an opportunity for you to get ready for an activity or assessment in class. For block day on October 4th, you will need access to your class preparation work on this food diary for both an assessment and a project. Please download and complete the food diary linked below. If you do not have a printer, please copy down the format exactly with all of the tables and titles.
Second, please comment your response to the following question from class today: ¿Quién es más saludable, Ana o Andrea? ¿Por qué?
Finally, I notice that some students have submitted their work on their digital portfolio. Please do not submit the portfolio, as you are going to continue working on it all year long. If you submitted, please un-submit it. Because the document is a template I created on Google Classroom, I can see your work as you complete it. For future deadlines with the portfolio, please make sure you have the work completed within the document and ready for me to view.
