Spanish yearlong 1

Students are being stretched a bit out of their comfort zone this week.  This is the first time students are translating a story using the unit vocabulary from Spanish to English.  It is a new skill and using a dictionary in an age when technology is so much faster is a learning curve but it is a great experience for them.  I am trying to get them to see that you never translate word for word but in phrases or sentences because you get the gist of what is said and then you piece it together.  We should finish this up on Friday.
