Why do we celebrate Valentines Day, and what is the history. Go here to watch a short video from the History Channel explaining it. This will be part of our History lesson for tomorrow.
We have been studying some Spanish words, for a whole quarter. I have a disc I purchased, but I do not care for it much. I do like the feature where I can print off the words, and their meanings. We studied, and wrote them every day until we memorized them. Now we need to learn to speak it properly. Below are three videos we will be watching everyday, until the end of the school year. They are numbers 1-10, colors, and food and utensils. We also learned body parts, but I can not find a video for it yet. Feel free to use them as you wish.
