Your homework for the next two nights is to go over quizlet and to practice how to use prepositions in sentence form.  Remember : Noun zai Noun preposition.  (Example: wo zai xuexiao li. I am in school.) kuzi zai wofang li. ( The pants are in the bedroom.) Know this for a formative quiz when we meet next.

Foundation High Classes

I have gone over your formative assessments.  We will go over them together tomorrow in class.  Please finish making your flash cards for weather and go over the new words.

Our goal in studying the weather is to be able to talk about the weather, to be able to read a weather report and write a note about weather conditions.

We will begin this journey tomorrow…

There is H.O.T. Tuesday and Thursdays to get assistance with improving your Chinese.  Please make sure you sign up before lunch on those days if you wish to receive extra help.  I strongly suggest you come for extra help if you did not do well on the formative test.
