Science: We continued to discuss the Anatomy & Physiology of the Frog which will prepare us for our Dissection Lab on Tuesday of next week. 

Spanish: We continued our lesson of Irregular Spanish Verbs in the Preterite Tense

Preterite

1) Ir & Ser

  • The Spanish verbs ir (to go) and ser (to be) share the same forms in the Preterite. The context of a sentence or a conversation will let you know which is being used.
    • Fui a la escuela. - I went to the school. (not "I was to the school.")
    • Maria y Carlos fueron al cine. - Maria and Carlos went to the movies. (not "Maria and Carlos were to the movies.")
  • The congugation of ir and ser are shown in the tables below.
