Spanish Activities for the Week of March 23rd.
1) Click on link below to watch a Video of Weather Vocabulary that I created.  You may watch the Video as many times as you need to.  Be sure to repeat the vocabulary out loud as you go along.
2) View/Print (if possible) the Handout on Weather Vocabulary.  Click on the link below to view it. You will be using this Handout right up until Spring Break to complete assignments.
3) Use the FlipGrid Link below to record yourself telling me about today's weather in Spanish.  Choose two weather expressions in Spanish from your Vocabulary sheet.  Practice saying them out loud in Spanish before recording. You may refer back to my VidYard recording to practice. When you are ready to record, click on the FlipGrid link below.  Then click on the green circle with the plus sign to add your FlipGrid Video about the weather. Be sure to include your name and class (Albanese, Boggs, Kenna, Kiley, Kolpack).  If for any reason FlipGrid won't save, upload, etc - just send me an email and include the Video if you want.  If you are uncomfortable submitting a video:  Draw a picture depicting today's weather and write two weather sentences in Spanish.  Take a picture of it and then send it to me in an email.
