La agenda de viernes, el 4 de marzo

¡Hola hola, clase!  You can do it!  ¡Sí se puede!  ¡Aquí está la presentación de hoy!

  • Calentamiento
    • ¡Saquen ustedes sus CUADERNOS y SAMs!
      • Notebook out! SAM out!
    • Go to your warm-up page, and write the title “Calentamiento."
    • Write down and answer the following questions:
      • ¿Cómo te llamas?
      • ¿Cómo estás?
      • ¿Qué día es hoy?
      • ¿Cuál es la fecha?
        • IF YOU WEREN'T HERE, and need to review:
          • ¿Cómo te llamas? → What is your name?
            • Me llamo __SPANISH NAME__.
          • ¿Cómo estás? → How are you?
            • Estoy __bien/mal/así-así/regular/enfermo/a__.
          • ¿Qué día es hoy? → What day is today?
            • Hoy es lunes.
          • 4. ¿Cuál es la fecha?  → What is the date?
            • Es el cinco de octubre.
    • HOMEWORK TONIGHT: Expectations for proof you studied
      • If you haven’t yet, please label each section or each word:
        • What you already know (with a checkmark or :D!)
        • What you remember but need to review (**)
          • If you just need to work on SPELLING, you can write SP
        • What you haven’t learned or don’t remember learning (use a ?? or other symbol)
      • Make a flashcard for every word with **, SP, or ??
    • Understanding the language learning journey
      • Language learning has a very high abandonment rate. A mere 4% of students embarking on language courses in schools achieve a basic level of fluency after three years. 96% fail to become fluent, and many quit completely!
      • People almost always wrongly conclude two things from this: 
        • Myth 1) Learning languages is hard.
        • Myth 2) Other people (but not them) are naturally good at languages. 
      • One of the biggest reasons cited for abandoning is that students don't feel any sense of progression -- it’s hard to feel like you’re getting BETTER!   Also, most students from the US, even that have an “A” in Spanish, can visit a Spanish speaking country and they can't even have basic conversations. People largely give up because they had the wrong expectations.
      •  So let's bust some myths:
        • 1) Learning a language isn't hard. It just takes a long time.
        • 2) Everyone is naturally good at languages. 
      • You already learned one, remember? 
        • You may have just forgotten how long it took.

    • Learning Spanish is like mountain climbing
      • It's steeper at first, so learning in middle school takes determination
      • But, the Spanish fluency mountain is one ANYONE can climb, provided she is willing to put in the effort and time to keep going a bit at a time!
      • So, where are you?   
        • Can you hang out with me for the night at base camp, or do you need to run to catch up?
      • Do you have the tools you need?
        • Yes!  I know the...
          • Alphabet
          • Estoy ______
          • Me llamo _______
          • Es _day_, el _number_ de month.
          • new vocab words;
            • how to say "I like" and "I don't like"
            • new VERBS!
