Vocabulary-Grammar ConnectionsEdit

Suggested Writing PracticeEdit

Write a list of words you believe exist and their meanings, based on the vocabulary words and patterns you have learned so far. For example, you might infer that pollos means chickens. Look these words up to check. Write a weekly menu and shopping list. (Someone in every household should do this anyway, to make it easier on whoever cooks dinner, so maybe you can actually use this assignment.) Write the recipe for something on the menu, or another recipe. (Use the book from Suggested Reading Practice for examples of recipes.)
