Spanish II Computer Lab 4/23

Repasito: 1. do handout with incendios y cucarachas.  2. turn in your RAFT assignment (with all drafts, rubric and peer review).

A. Scan this FEMA site in Spanish and then pay special attention to the section called “Emergencias y Desastres Recientes” to answer the following questions.

1. ¿Dónde hubo un terremoto?

2. ¿Dónde hubo una tormenta de nieve?

3. ¿Dónde hubo una inundación?

B. Present Perfect Tense

Refresh the forms of haber needed in your notes and use the language guide to refresh your past participles.  Then play the quia quiz game for present perfect.

1. Write down your forms of haber plus some info on past participles (include normal verbs plus a few irregulars at least).

2. Write down how you did on the game.

C. Irregular Preterit Practice

Practice your conjugation with spaleon 1. here and 2. here .  How did you do on each one?

Practice with your textbook here.  How did you do?

Pick six verbs from BK Nelson’s menu/activity (that we have learned) and conjugate them.  Using the self-correction, how did you do?  Practice over and over until you no longer make mistakes.

D. Dictionary skills

Do the handout called Diccionario (on the back of your warm up).

One online Spanish dictionary that I find useful is www.spanishdict.com  Students often feel unsure about using the online resource because they will perhaps type in too many words to where it would be cheating.  When in doubt, stick to your paper/book style dictionary.

E. Skits (if time)
