Reflexive Verb Practice 1 Form

Go to the Audioboo app on the iPads and make a recording pronouncing your verbs from the reflexive list.  You will have a pronunciation grade, which will be based solely on your improvement throughout the unit.  Once your recording is complete, title it Reflexive Verb Pron. #1.  Grab the embed code and move to your blog to create a new post.  Title your post:  Reflexive Verb Pronunciation Practice, then embed your recording inside the post and publish.

Access the Reflexive Verb–Daily Routine 1 doc, and follow the instructions to complete the assignment.  Remember to complete your assignment via a new doc in Google Drive.  Give your document the same title as the original assignment (listed above).  Be certain to create that doc while inside your shared folder.

Be certain your Audioboo recording from yesterday is embedded on your blog.  Then, create a new blog post titled, “Por la mañana o Por la noche?”  Create a table with 3 columns and 9 rows.  Look at the list of verbs below and decide which time of day you do those activities, and enter the verbs in the column that is appropriate for the activity.  Label your columns:  Por la mañana, Por la noche & Por la mañana y noche. Conjugate your verbs in the yo form and type them into the correct column.

Alternate table creation:  If you start your new post and do not get the option to insert a table, you can go to Word and create a table.  Insert all your information, then copy the table.  Come back to your blog post, click the W icon, paste your table inside the new box that opens up, hit insert.
