The Dates
Explanation:

To tell someone the date you need to know how to count to 31, what to say first day or month, and how to say the days of the week.

In spanish you always say the date day/month/year.


How to count to 31:

0 = cero      10 = diez            20 = veinte     30 = treinta 

1 = uno      11 = once           21 = veintiuno 31 = treinta y dos

2 = dos      12 = doce            22 = veintidos

3 = tres       13 = trece           23 = veintitres

4 = cuatro   14 = catorce        24 = veinticuatro

5 = cinco    15 = quince         25 = veinticinco

6 = seis      16 = diez y seis     26 = veintiseis

7 = séte      17 = diez y sete    27 = veintiséte

8 = ocho     18 = diez y ocho  28 = veintiocho

9 = nueva    19 = diez y nueva 29 = veintinueva

Here is a game that can help you improve on your dates.

The internet service provider is Verizon. This connects the phone wire which connects to the modem.This is connected to the router. The router sends signals to all of the electronic devices such as computers, printers, game systems,and televisions.
I always thought that it was really interesting how the router can send out signals to the electronic devices. I learned how the firewalls work and what they can block the searches from beng delivered and how all of this can take place in a matter of seconds, yet we still complain about how long it takes for a search to go through. 
I would tell them about how the how the router communicates with all the devices and about how everything communicates with something else, kind of like a domino affect.

"A a Z" The Spanish Alfabeto

No language can exist without some form of the alphabet and spanish is no exception. Not only is the alphabet essential for spelling but pronunciation as well. 

In order to properly use the spanish alphabet you must know
-pronunciation
-how to differentiate between letters
-phonetics

Here is  chart of all the letters and their correct pronunciations


A (ah)B (beh)C (seh)D (deh)E (eh)
F (efeh)G (hey)H (acheh)I (eeeeeeee)J (hota)
K (kah)L (eleh)M (emeh)N (eneh)*Ñ (enyeh)
O (o)P (peh)Q (cooo)R (ereh)S (eseh)
T (teh)U (oooo)V (beh)W (doble beh)X (equis)
Y (eeegriega)Z (seta)
*There is the letter ñ in the spanish alphabet and not the english. This is the only different letter so be careful.


Here is a helpful game to assist you in learning the pronunciation of the alphabet





Phonetic Rules

-H’s are always silent

-2 l’s together are pronounced as an english y

-2 r’s together are to be rolled

-Ay sounds the same as i

-Ge sounds like he


Here is a video of a child learning how to spell their name. His spanish speaking father is teaching her how to spell in their language.

Qué Hora es?

For our project we wil also be teaching how to ask and tell time. Mainly we will work with numbers and how to say different times. The course will review  different  phrases such as:
¿(A) Qué hora es? - what times is it?
¿(A) Qué hora son? - what times is it?
¿(A) Qué hora tiene? - what times is it?
Es la una - one o'clock
Son las dos, tres, cuatro, . . . - two o'clock, three o'clock, four o'clock , . . .
. . . y cuarto - :15
. . . y media - :30
. . . menos cuatro - :45
. . . menos minutes before the hour
Punto . . . - exactly. . . 

de la mañana - in the morning
de la tarde - in the afternoon
de la noche - at night 

For our movie we will take place in a classroom and a student will constantly ask when class is over and another student will keep reminding him when the class ends.

Olsen, Ava, Lucidchart, Home Network

This is my local area network. There are many electronics that are hooked up to the internet service that comes into the house. The internet comes in from the ISP, which is the internet service provider, and is sent to the modem. The modem send the signal to the router, and the electronics pick up the signal from the router and use the internet.

I learned that the internet is permanent, and anything you post will remain there forever, even though you delete it. I also learned how the local area network functions and what the ISP stands for (Internet Service Provider.) It was very interesting to understand how the network works, and learn about how everything is connected.

For people that need to know something about having an ISP/home network, I would tell them that they need to be careful about what they put online. That being said, I could say that they should definitely read a lot about it and ask a lot of people for advice if they need help because it's a lot of information to absorb the first time you read about it. I think they should definitely be educated in it before they get an ISP or home network.

2. Comcast, which is my I.S.P. is directly connected to the internet/World Wide Web. Then from the I.S.P. wires are coming out of it. The wires are going into the Modem which then connects to the wireless router. From the rowder a couple different things are used.The desk top, laptops, cell phones, home phones, Wii, printer, and T.V. 

3. I learned the difference between the world wide web and the internet. Also all of the different names and meanings for the machines/equipment that is connected to my home network. Such as I.S.P, modem, and router.

4.Make sure all of the wires are connected correctly. Also make sure you know the important things about having a home network and how to take care of it properly so you don't have to re buy different pieces of equipment.

¿Qué hora es?: Whats the time?

¿Qué hora es?: Whats the time?

Learn to ask and answer time in spanish

Carolyn Borock


Lesson Part 1

There are 3 ways to ask the time

Here is the 3 ways:

Spanish

English

¿Qué hora es?

What time is it?

¿Qué hora son?

What time is it?

¿Qué hora tiene(s)

What time is it?



So did you learn something new? 

Want to test your skills?

<Practica>

  1. Without looking at the chart can you name the 3 ways to ask what time it is?


Lesson Part 2

Now do you remember numbers #1-12

Lets review them 


Spanish

English

unos

1

dos 

2

tres

3

cuatro

4

cinco

5

seis

6

siete

7

ocho

8

nueve

9

diez

10

once

11

doce

12



Ok know you remember the numbers 

So lets move on to time.



Spanish

English

Endings

Es lan una 

It’s 1:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las dos

It’s 2:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las tres

It’s 3:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las cuarto

It’s 4:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las cinco

It’s 5:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las seis

It’s 6:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las siete

It’s 7:00

Son las ocho

It’s 8:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las nueve

It’s 9:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las diez

It’s 10:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Son las doce

It’s 11:00

en punto (on the dot) 

Es lan medianoche

It’s Midnight




Part 3

Endings 

...de la mañana ( in the mourning)

...de la tarde ( in the afternoon)

...de la noche (in the evening)

... y cuarto (quarter after)

... menos cuarto (quarter of)

...y media (half past)

... en punto (on the dot) when you use this its only when you have :00 

When you want to add 0:__ you put a y after you did son las or es lan 

Example: 0 y __

When you want to make it easier you menos it which means minus

Example: 0 menos __



LessonPart 4 

Adding 0:__ the blank. 

So lets just say you had 2:30AM.

You would solve that by putting all the components together.

So it would be Son las dos y media de la mañana.

Lets try another one a little harder.

7:55PM

You would solve that by adding son las or es lan in this case it would be Son las and since we are subtracting it so it would be ocho.

So all together it would be...

Son las ocho menos cinco de la noche

​2. Comcast is my I.S.P which is also connected to internet, who is a server to the World Wide Web. The cable wire is connected to the Modem. The modem provides internet connection also known as wifi. The Wii, two I-phone, two HTC One X's, as well as my Mac Book Pro & my 8500 hp Office Pro Printer are connected to the wireless router. 

3. I learned that your home network is more than just internet. It is a World Wide Web. You might not know it but a lot is connected to the internet Such as phones , computers, I-pads etc. 

4. Something that people need to know about having ISP/Home Network is that it is expensive, depending on who the server is. Also that everything that you is forever on the internet. It never goes away, even is you think you "erased" it.

Samuels, Todd Lucid Chart Network.

2. To connect to the internet at home I use my phone and my laptop.
3. I learned about everything in my home and how my internet is connected I never payed much attention to it before, I learned about my own ISP, and a general understanding of the subject
4. I would tell other people that it costs alot to maintain having a home network, but it is very important so having internet is worth the deal, all depending on the customers service provider.

(Explain your L.A.N. Local Area Network - all the devices on your internet connection.)

There are two laptops in my network; one MacBook Pro (mine) and one Acer laptop (my sister's). There is also an Apple TV that stays in the living room along with the Wii. My dad uses a Dell desktop too.

(Reflect on what you learned about networks, did you have an OMG moment that you learned something new and interesting? if now write about what you learned.)


I learned that my network is extremely confusing and very expensive. I also realized that internet is not just some magical data, but  actually a complicated system.

(What would you tell other people that they need to know about having an ISP/Home network?)

I would tell them that they need to make sure they understand how to hook up their network and also that internet is extremely costly.

I have many devices on my L.A.N. I have devices such as printers, phones, monitors, and gaming consoles. I learned a lot of information on networks. I, myself am not technologically savvy so, I got a lot of useful information from this. I had no clue that so many of my devices were connected to two things, a modem and router. Another thing that I learned was that the internet is the base of everything, network related. The thing I would tell people about having an I.S.P./Home Network is that the system is much more complex that you think. My view on the internet and how it work was nothing compared to what it actually was.

The months in Spanish

For everyone who wants to know how to speak some spanish here is a guide to helping you ask questions about the months and answer them all in spanish

Notice how the months in Spanish are not capitilized. This is because they are not capitlied unless they start a sentence.

One way I memorized this is part of a song (I think). It goes like this.

Enero, febrero, marzo y abril
Mayo, junio y julio estàn aquie
agosto y septiembre
octubre y noviembre 
Su nombre es diciembre

It's very helpful when you forget how to prononce the months (which I do a lot). Anyway I hope this is helpful.
Here is a video about how it helps you in everyday life as part of my school project.
(Note: Viemo got hit by Sandy so it's taking a while to upload).

Derry, William, lucidchart, home network

The Local Area Network is verizon. The devices on the internet connection are a macbook, desktop, xbox 360, iPad,iPod and a printer. I learned a lot about networks. Such as what networks look like. Also I learned that having a home network is not cheap. Furthermore not everyone has a home network. I also learned that the internet works better from above. That meaning if you have your modem on the top floor of your house the internet would work better. This is true because internet falls down. I think that everyone should have an home network. Also having a home network is useful because you do not have to rely on another person's home network. It is better to have your own network.

1) I use my laptop and phone to connect to the internet. 
2)I learned about how the actual internet connects, and that it is more than just my router. I never even cared or payed attention about how things that I use daily actual work. The main thing that I learned and found interests in was my ISP, which is connected with comcast.  
3)I would tell them that even if it IS expensive to have a home network, it does help a lot. But when you do get home network, you have to make sure that all your wires are plugged in and connected in the right places.

My LAN is consisted of three iPhones, three laptops, a Wii, and a Blu-Ray player. I didn't learn much that is new, because I knew a lot about networks beforehand. If you want to set up a network, make sure your router both has an ethernet out and a wireless broadcaster. The ethernet is faster than the Wi•Fi, but it's a cord and needs to be wired to each computer. For computers on the same floor as the router, ethernet would be helpful.

final thing
​This represents my home internet, and how it works. My I.S.P. (internet service provider) is Comcast. The internet comes in through my modem, and is distributed to all my devices wirelessly. The devices that is distributed to are my speakers, my smart phone, my computer, and my printer. 

I have learned a lot about network, how they work, and who uses them. I have also learned how to be safe on line, and to not do anything you will regret, because it is there permanently. 

I would tell other people to be conscious of what you do on the internet, and use it for good reasons, and not bad.

¿Qué hora es?- The Times in Spanish.

When you are in a new and strange environment and your'e pressed for time it can be difficult. In this lesson you will learn on how to ask what time it is  and how to know what someone's response would be. The chart below has been made so that you can try to learn how to say the times in Spanish. (note: when you say menos cuatro you must say the hour that is after the time, EX: 5:45= Son las seis menos cuatro). Below is a video demonstrating a real life situation of a student in a new school asking when to change times.

1.

​My home LAN consists of my Airport connecting to all of our devices. the devices connected include: My mother's phone, our computers, and an Ipod. These devices are the ones that make up my overall home-network and the chart you see before you.

2.
I learned just how much more complicated it is than what I may have thought. There are a lot of different factors that go into in the long run, having working internet. I think that many people do not know how there internet works and why it works. It is difficult to appreciate something you don't know about. It is also important to be knowledgeable yourself so you may inform others and spread the knowledge about. This way we can all reach a higher plane of knowing and existence. 

3.
I think that people should take the time to learn about their home networks so that they can appreciate them fully. I was not aware of how much goes into it and I think knowing more about it made em appreciate that I have it more. The internet is a great tool that is important to know about in a more logistical manner.
