      the cap - la gorra 

• You should have handed in your 3 questions and answers using each of the following words: grande, mediano,  pequeño,  feo and bonito. Follow the pattern given on p. 47.
     Ex: ¿Cómo te queda el suéter anaranjado?
            Me queda grande.

• Reread pp 40-44. We will continue  talking about clothes that people wear.
Remember practice writing questions and answers following the patterns given below.  You must write 2 questions and answers for each of the patterns.

         ¿Qué vas a llevar a la fiesta el sábado?

            Voy a llevar una camiseta y unos pantalones.
• Review pp. 35-36. 

By now you know that to talk about  what hurts, you use the verb doler. When  you want to say that something hurts you, use me duele. If more than one thing hurts, such as both of your feet, use me duelen.  

  When you're asking someone else if something hurts them, use te duele.
  Ex. ¿Te duele el ojo?   Sí, me duele el ojo. No, no me duele el ojo.
          ¿Te duelen los ojos?   Sí, me duelen los ojos. No, no me duelen los ojos. (Notice that when more than one thing hurts, such as both of your eyes, you use me duelen).
 You've also practiced naming parts of your body, your head and face with verbs such as tocar and ser (to be). Now we will continue practicing affirmative and negative statements wth verb ser.
  Ex: ¿Es el codo?
          Sí, es el codo.
          No, no es el codo.
        ¿Son los codos?
           Sí, son los codos. 
           No, no son low codos.

Follow the model given previously to write 3 questions, and their answers in affirmative and negative form.

Remember to:
•  Increase your vocabulary by using "Alan's technique (from FluentU
      -  Before you go into the shower, identify 5 words that you want to learn.
      -  Create a sentence that links those 5 words.
      -  The sentence doesn't have to make sense. It just has to be highly memorable.
      -  Keep repeating that sentence to yourself in the shower.
      -  See if you can remember it until you're done showering.


You'll find that the words are stuck in your head."
