On Wednesday 1/15, Thursday 1/16, & Friday 1/17, 7th grade students had the opportunity to take an in-class shopping trip to buy items from “la papeleria” (paper store) and “la tienda de ropa (clothing store).” With a budget of 2000 pesos, students had to create their shopping/wish list of back to school items from the Chapter 3 vocabulary. This gave students a hands-on approach to our new words. Take a look!

To continue with our section of vocabulary on clothing, 7th graders were given the opportunity to construct their own outfits for the runway during our in class fashion show on Friday, 1/24! Using Chapter 3 vocabulary words on clothing, students wrote a short paragraph in Spanish describing their outfits. These descriptions included colors, cost, adjectives, and of course where their outfits were best suited for! Students took turns reading each others’ descriptions while their partner walked the runway. Students were graded on grammar, pronunciation, and creativity. Room B7  transformed into a catwalk for sure!

Some students chose to write their lists the “old fashioned” way, while others opted for the iPad in a Google Doc.

Students had 2000 pesos to spend, and had to choose their items wisely!
