QUIZLET 


This is a fabulous website onto which I've downloaded all of the vocabulary for both seventh- and eighth-grade Spanish.  You can play games, print flash cards, test yourself, and look back at old vocabulary or ahead to new vocabulary.  Use this site often!

If you have not yet set up a quizlet account, you may be prompted to do so.  Follow the instructions; it's easy!
