SPAN 100 AMU Week 2 lesson Spanish I American Military University assistance is available on Domyclass
- The objectives for this week are to recycle and remember the content from week one and to discover meaning of new thematic vocabulary related to colors, sizes, professions, and pronouns. With the concepts and vocabulary up to this week, you will begin to ask and answer questions in Spanish. Students will continue to discover vocabulary through picture association, hear and speak previously studied vocabulary, see and learn word order, and discover the vocabulary for numbers, clothing, and quantities in Spanish.
This week you will create with the content in Spanish for this week´s grammar focus (which will happen in the journal entry area), using specific grammatical concepts.
This week you will demonstrate what you have learned so far by taking a quiz on the first two weeks of content. This assessment will help you see how well you are retaining the information and applying it in a different setting. Be sure to take the quiz AFTER you have completed this week´s RS assignments.
Learn to access course-specific information from the online library. This week´s forum gives students an opportunity to explore the library materials specifically selected to support this course.
Please continue to work in the workbook and check your work as you go. As you are learning numbers, find a way to practice throughout the day. Every day think of what the date is in Spanish, when you check the time think of what numbers you are seeing in Spanish. You can find ways to practice without taking any time and in the end you are going to put those words to memory.
Have a great week.
Students will be able to:
- Recall meaning and structure of content from week one and to discover meaning of new thematic vocabulary related to colors, sizes, professions, and pronouns
- Begin to ask and answer questions in Spanish
- Discover vocabulary through picture association, hear and speak previously studied vocabulary, see and learn word order, and discover the vocabulary for numbers, clothing, and quantities in Spanish
- Create with the content in Spanish for this week´s forum task, using specific verb and grammar forms
In this lesson, we will discuss:
- Adjective agreement
- Gender and Plurality
- Present Progressive tense
- Thematic vocabulary Unit one, lesson three and four
- Adjective agreement
- Present progressive
- Gender and plurality
The following activities and assessments need to be completed this week:
- Rosetta Stone Unit one, Lessons three and four + Milestone exercise
- Quiz #1
- Week 2 Forum: Library Course Guide Exploration forum
- Week 2 Grammar focus: Adjective agreement & Present progressive
- Supplemental Work book materials
- Journal Entry Two Review the grammar notes as often as you can to reinforce the key concepts we have seen so far. Being familiar with verb conjugations takes time, so it is important to review verb charts regularly. I recommend practicing conjugating verbs that you are seeing on the RS site. Write out the personal pronouns and work your way through the conjugations. For example:
nosotros hablamos ellos/ellas/ustedes hablan
In school we used to always think of verbs being conjugated in this order, and would memorize O, AS, A, AMOS, AN…hablO, hablAS, hablA, hablAMOS, hablAN
These sort of drills can help you remember as well as understand how verbs are conjugated.
So practice! Have a great week. You have your first quiz this week, so I encourage you to read the previously assigned grammar notes in the notes in the “Resources” section and review the RS slides as much as possible to reinforce the vocabulary and put it to memory. Take the quiz after you have completed the RS assignments for the week, as this week´s content will be on the quiz.
If you have any questions about any of the content from weeks 1 and two, please ask me prior to accessing the quiz. ¡Buena suerte! (Good luck!)
This lesson introduces the numbers 1-6, interrogative words for asking questions, some common vocabulary for professions and clothing that are used in everyday life, as well as colors. In addition, you will learn basic verb conjugations and the constructs therein with the use of pronouns and subject pronouns.
We will begin this lesson by learning the numbers 1-6. Due to the fact that many equations might result in a sum or quotient of zero, this integer will also be included for your full enrichment.
Let us now learn the numbers 0-6 and their pronunciation.
HAY – there is, there are
Hay is pronounced like eye
When you want to say “there is” or “there are” you say Hay in.
There is a cat in the house. Hay un gato en la casa.
There are two girls in the car. Hay dos niñas en el carro.
NOTE: Whether you are saying “there is” or “there are” – singular or plural, it is the same word in Spanish – HAY. Unlike all other grammatical structures in Spanish, in which the noun and article or verb and subject pronoun must match in both gender and number, the word is an exception in that it does not change and is always “HAY.”
Addition and Subtraction
Adding and subtracting numbers is expressed using the words ‘más’ and ‘menos’ as follows:
2 – 1 = 1 Dos menos uno es uno. Two minus one equals one.
0 + 1 = 1 Cero más uno es uno. Zero plus one equals one.
Sum or Remainder of 0 and 1
For sums of 0 and 1, the verb form ‘es’ is used.
Example: 0 + 1 = 1 Cero más uno es uno. Zero plus one is one.
6 – 4 = 2 Seis menos cuatro son dos. Six minus four is two.
Sum or Remainder of Greater Than 1.
For sums greater than 1, the verb form ‘son’ is used.
2 + 3 = 5 Dos más tres son cinco. Two plus three equals five.
5 – 3 = 2 Cinco menos tres son dos. Five minus three equals one.
Let’s now look at some vocabulary that will be very helpful. As you look at these words and pictures, practice pronouncing each word, using the vowel sounds you just learned in Lesson 1.
|Los Colores||Pronunciation||The Colors|
|Castaño (pelo castaño, ojos castaños||Kahs-TAHN-yo||Brown (brown hair, brown eyes)|
|Dorado||Do-RAH-though||Gold (golden in color, not the metal that jewelry is made of)|
|Plateado||Plah-tay-AH-though||Silver (silver in color, not the metal that jewelry is made of)|
