I hope that everything went well with the substitute. Here are some reminders for you all this weekend.
Russian I, II, III
You'll all have your quizzes on Monday make sure that you are preparing yourself over the weekend. Russian I Students, you should be focused on your adjectives in the masculine, feminine, and neuter genders for the nominative, accusative, prepositional, and genitive case. You should also have a clear understanding of the meaning behind the cases and what jobs they perform in terms of grammar. Also, complete your home projects. You should have your plans done for your houses as well as your paragraphs for each room.
Russian II Students, your quiz will focus on the eight verbs of motion related to going by foot, going by vehicle, taking by foot, and taking by vehicle. Learn your conjugations, know their uses, and pay attention to your exercises. There are a lot of extra opportunities to review this topic online if you just search for the topic.
Russian III Students, you have the same idea for your quiz on Monday, but remember that you have to be able to add prefixes to the verbs and understand not only how to add the prefix but also what that addition does to the verb itself.
If any of you did not finish your quiz today with the substitute, please see me tomorrow or Monday to finish. Next week we will have the priority of finishing our creative writing projects and then moving on to our next unit in which we will study literature and non-fiction from Africa. Over the weekend, spend your time trying to complete a rough draft of your creative writing work. I will be trying to get us computer lab time on Monday to type up your work before I collect projects on Wednesday. Remember the importance of meeting your deadlines this semester!
