- You should have your Learning Styles handout and the activity sheet (students will be taking passing these out).
- Click HERE.
- Scroll down the left sidebar and find the section "About Learning Styles Modalities" and find your learning style (Visual, Auditory, or Tactile-Kinesthetic) - it's on the handout. If you have "global" on your handout, choose any of the styles. If you have more than one style listed, choose the first one on your sheet.
- You will be going in and out of the subsections to complete the activity sheet.
- As soon as everyone is settled and we greet each other, Madame will provide you instructions for the last section of the activity sheet.
- The activity sheet is due at the end of class today.
Due to the difficulties posting the Food Fête instructions, your "teaching" activity will be accepted through next Tuesday.
Please note that for the work you will be completing while Madame is away, you will need loose-leaf notebook paper. Tomorrow, you will learn who is in your project group and about the project. YOU WILL SPEND WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY COMPLETING YOUR ROUGH DRAFT OF THE PROJECT.
ON MONDAY OF NEXT WEEK, YOU WILL HAVE ANOTHER -ER VERB CONJUGATION TEST. You will be learning a new verb - an irregular one, which you must memorize by Wednesday of next week! Our food day is a week from this Friday.

Our main focus this week will be knowing the -er verb chart backwards, forwards, and inside out! Students have an -er verb TEST on Thursday. On Wednesday, students will be introduced to objects and verbs that we will incorporate into the study of our first verb form. There will be a review session Thursday morning for any students who want additional help with and practice for their test.
Visit Madame's Quia Home Page to practice -er verb conjugations. (FOR THE PRACTICE QUIZ, USE YOUR CLASS NUMBER AS YOUR FIRST NAME AND YOUR CLASS COLOR AS YOUR LAST NAME.) There are a few advanced sentences here - how would you conjugate a verb if the subject is a person, place or thing? We will discuss this in class tomorrow - if you can figure this out on your own, you're ahead of the gang!
