You would respond...

If it was 1 o'clock on the dot you would say "es el una en punta" ("it is 1 o'clock exactly")
If it was 2 o'clock on the dot you would say "son las dos en punta" ("it is 2 o'clock exactly")
 
If it was o'clock on the dot you would say "son las tres en punta" ("it is 3 o'clock exactly")
 
If it was o'clock on the dot you would say "son las cuatro en punta" ("it is 4 o'clock exactly")
 
If it was 5 o'clock on the dot you would say "son las cinco en punta" ("it is 5 o'clock exactly")

Designing my album was easy for me and writing descriptions was pretty easy.




The reflection for my project kept on getting deleted and my song for itunes will not save as a file on my blog. I also had trouble trying to mix up what I was saying in my photos because many of them were in the same summer and the same day.



How did you apply the SLA core values to your project?

I was asked the question and answered “Qué hice el verano pasado”
I researched what to say for pictures in the past.
I had people review my work and I practiced pronunciation with them.
I made my project a photo album so it was fun and creative and I made an itunes song as my recording.
I wonder how (if I get a chance to do it again) I would change my project and pictures.

What did you learn about Spanish through completing this project?

I learned how to speak in the preterit tense, I always wanted to know how to do that.

What did you change about your final project based on peer feedback?  What did you change based on Srta. G’s feedback?

I changes the way i wrote my descriptions.

If you had the opportunity to start your project all over again, how would you do it differently?

I would use different pictures and maybe do an imovie or comic life.

Did you enjoy this project? Why or why not?

Yes, because it was fun and creative, I love letting my creative side out.

Do you have any suggestions for me if I do this same project next year?

No, I think this project was great the way it was. It is fun and enjoyable to do.

Espanol Summer

Spanish Simmer project
The project was to find and select 5 or more pictures from past summers. We were to find the pictures and describe them using our espanol vocabulary and past tense words.
How did you apply the SLA core values to your project. Then we had to create the pictures into a presentation and post it into sla blog aka slate.

I questioned about my family history. I Researched what i used to do in my past summers. I collaborated with my relatives to get the pictures. I am presenting my project on slate. I am reflecting on it with these reflection questions.


What did you learn about Spanish through completing this project?

I learned that fue means was and other past ensue words.

What did you change about your final project based on peer feedback?  What did you change based on Srta. G’s feedback?


Nothing was changed.

If you had the opportunity to start your project all over again, how would you do it differently?

I would have more than three people peer edit my work

Did you enjoy this project? Why or why not?

The project was new and fun. It wasn't something that I had expected. 


Do you have any suggestions for me if I do this same project next year?

One suggestion is to be more flexible with the number of pictures. If a person only has like 2 or 4 then that should be worth more than just a C.

When can we meet up? ¡Los días de la semana!

In order to make plans, you must know the days of the week! 
Screen Shot 2011-10-26 at 8.46.11 AM
You might have noticed that Monday is listed first in the list. This is because in Español, lunes, or Monday, is the first day of the week. Another surprising fact you might have noticed is that the letters are not capitalized. In Español, you do not capitalize the days of the week. 

This is an example of Alexis asking her new friend, Emalyn, who happens to be a spanish speaker, what day she is free to hang out.

¡Los números! Phone numbers in Español.

In order to know how to get someone’s phone number - or give yours - you need to know the numbers first!

Screen Shot 2011-10-26 at 8.33.34 AM
Now that you know the numbers, it’s time to lean the question. 

There are a few ways to ask for someone’s phone number.

One is: ¿Cuál es tu número de teléfono? 

This should be used amongst friends and peers. 

To ask someone with higher authority than yourself their phone number, you should change the “tu”, to “su”. So it is now “¿Cuál es su número de teléfono?”

If someone asks you your number, you should respond with “Mi número de teléfono es...” or “Es el...”

Here is an example of two partners working together on a project and and needing to be able to contact each other.
