Unit 1: Physical geography of the world.

Today, Paqui has started the class telling some people that they had to give her the maps, because some people of the class had to repeat it. Then I have asked Paqui  if I could sit nearer the blackboard and she has told me that, of course, I could. Ana has also sat nearer the blackboard.

After that, Paqui has given us all the books, and she has told us, that we have to take care of it, because Cristina and she have worked hard during all the summer to create the books. We have read the index, and after, we have started unit 1: Phisical geography of the world.

Paqui has told us that all the things we have seen this morning were a review of 1º of E.S.O.

We have watched a PowerPoint presentation about the forms of relief on both the continental and the oceanic crust. We have written all those forms of relief, like mountain, plateau (you can see an example of this form of relief, at the top of the comment) , massif... and the parts of the oceanic crust too.

I have asked Paqui if she could explain it slower because so many words were new for me, and it was a little bit more difficult, Ana Lucas and Juan Carlos have agreed with me, because neither they were in European Section in 1º.

We have also reviewed the bodies of water and we have written all the bodies of salt and fresh water.

We have started writing on our glossaries and, I have written many words that I didn't understand!

At the end of the class, Paqui has told us that we have to write the definitions of all the forms of relief and the bodies of water, for homework.

Hello Laura, I was looking forward to your post and you haven´t deceived me. Your post is excellent! A lot of details, the difficulties you have found, your interest for the subject... Congratulations! The picture is also spectacular.

Don´t worry with the new words. We are going to use them constantly in this unit and you won´t have problems to remember them. If you have any doubts, just ask.

Congratulations again. See you!

Paqui Pérez Fons said...

One last thing: can you add a title to your post? Thanks in advance.

Javier Alberca said...

Very good journal! It's perfect. I have nothing to contribute.

Laura Meco said...

Thanks Paqui. Ok, I won't worry with the new words, I think, that'll be easy to learn them.
The tittle is already written.
Thank you also, Javi!

Laura Bustamante said...

Hello again, girls. You´re more active than the boys. I have a question for you: Can you find a spelling mistake on Laura´s post? I´ll give you a clue: it´s on a verb tense. It´s only a letter.

Come on!Let´s see if you can find it.

Silvia, don´t forget to enter your user name and your password to leave your comments too.


Rebeca said...

Hi for everybody! Laura your post is fantastic! It´s long and you explain very well how has been the lesson today.
And the mistake can be in the last part? Is we have started WRITTING?

Paqui Pérez Fons said...

Hello Rebeca. No, the veb "write" has only two "t" in the past participle (written). The word with the spelling mistake is shorter. Try to guess it!

Paqui Pérez Fons said...

Sorry,I wanted to say "the verb".

Kelly said...

Hi Laura,
Your journal is fantastic! As Paqui mentioned, I think it's a good thing that you have "reflected" on how you felt in the class. For example, you mentioned the things that were difficult for you, like the vocabulary. This is the point of the reflective journal - to explain what happened in class and your personal reactions to what we do in class.

Okay, now I want to make some corrections.

1. You wrote,"I have told Paqui she could explain it slower because so many words were new for me...". You should say, "I asked Paqui if she could explain it slower..."

2.You wrote, "Ana Lucas and Juan Carlos thought as me...". You should say, "Ana Lucas and Juan Carlos agreed with me or felt the same way I did.

Okay Laura? Very good work!

Javier Alberca said...

Why I'm the only boy who comments? Come on boys!!!!!

Paqui Pérez Fons said...

Maybe they are shy (or a little bit lazy) ;)

Laura Meco said...

Oh thanks for your correction Kelly!
I think there is another spelling mistake... It's in the part, "we have review..." It must be "we have reviewed" Am I wrong?
If I'm right I'll change it with the rest of things that Kelly has told me.

Kelly said...

Your welcome Laura. Well done! You're right, it should be "we have reviewed" (present perfect) instead of "we have review..."

It's very good that you check for your own mistakes. When I make corrections I tell you some mistakes, usually the biggest ones, but not everything. ;)
