Week 13
Good Morning!                                                                                                                                                           ¡Buenos Días!  

October is the tenth month of the year in the modern day Gregorian calendar. 
The month kept its original name from the Roman calendar in Latin, in which 
octo means “eight;” marking it the eighth month of the year.

                           Octubre es el décimo mes del año en la época actual del calendario gregoriano.                                       El mes mantuvo su nombre original del calendario romano en latín, en el cual                                          octo significa “ocho;” marcando así el octavo mes del año.

On this week, we will continue with the following lessons:

THE BODY: using personal and possessive pronouns, plus personal adjectives as we learn      about the parts of the body.

PERSONAL PRONOUNS                                                                                                                                                              Singular: I /me, you /you, he /him, she /her, it /it                                                                                                 Plural: we /us, you /you, they /them

POSSESSIVE ADJECTIVES and POSSESSIVE PRONOUNS:                                                                                               Singular: my /mine, your /yours, his /his, her /hers, it /not used                                                                    Plural: our/ours, your/yours, their/theirs
