McGinty - Spanish I High School Credit - 19-20
(High School Credit)
Welcome to Spanish I
This course is taught the same as it is at Weddington High School with the same expectations since it is for High School Credit.
We will move at a fast pace and my expectations are that you will be reviewing class material and vocabulary nightly even if no homework is assigned.
You will be assigned a workbook in class and it will remain in the classroom until the end of the year. You are welcome to tear out pages that we do in class to help you study for any quiz or test.
I have also attached below the electronic site for the textbook and the workbooks.
You will be tested on all aspects of the language to include speaking, writing, listening and reading comprehension an grammar.
You will have a comprehensive final exam at the end of the year which will be 20% of your final grade.
I will update powerschool as quickly as possible after a quiz or test so you will always know where you are with your grade. I will also post study aids in the form of powerpoints and extra worksheets and notes in Canvass to assist you.
If you miss a quiz or test --- please see me as quickly as possible for a make up time. It is your responsibility to see me for make up times. I am here each morning early for tutoring and make ups. Please be here by 7:45 am. as I have car pool duty which begins at 8:20 am. but email me first to be sure there are no conflicts.

Using the link for the Core Practice and Guided Practice Workbooks -- complete the following pages:
- Core Practice 85-88 – 5A Vocabulary
2. Core Practice 89 and Guided Practice 159 -160. – the verb “Tener”
Remember– Tener is a “Yo go” and a Stem Changer (e=ie). It is not a full boot verb but is a sock verb because there is not stem change in the Yo form but it has the “go” in the YO form.
- Create 15 sentences using the chapter vocab for family members and the verb tener. – it must be neat!!!! (Colby and Emerick !!!!!) :)
You will need to use Tener in all of its forms – not just the Yo form.
EX – My mother has 4 cousins , My uncles have 5 children ( make the words plural)
Below are Some Notes, Vvideos and Powerpoints to help you with "Tener". Remember it is on the Stem Change Verb Pack ( last page) I gave you in class -- it is a "yo go" but also a "Sock" verb.

Please feel free to email me with any questions or to just say say hello. I actually do miss all of you!!!
Spanish I Work for the Week of 4/21 - 4/24
We are beginning now possessive adjectives ( my, his, hers, yours, theirs , ours)
"Note" -- they key to this is that whether it is singular or plural depends of what is being possessed not the person doing the possessing.
Ex - My book = mi libro
Ex - My books = mis libros
The only possessive adjective where you have to focus on gender is "ours". All of them you have to focus on singular/plural but "ours" is the only one with gender.
Ex - Our house - nuestra casa (nuestras casas)
Ex - Our car - nuestro carro (nuestros carros)
Notes, Videos, and Powerpoints to Review
