Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - Holiday

Flashcards - OCR GCSE Spanish: Vocabulary List - Holiday

I have put every word in the vocabulary list that OCR publishes onto flashcards. This pack is just on the topic of holidays, but I have published all the other topics here on TES. If you are familiar with these words then the exam will be incredibly easy, since these are the only words that they will use in the exam. In this bundle, I have printed a pack with pictures, a pack in which you fold down the middle and a pack which you print double sided. The different packs are all exactly the same words, just choose the one which will help the words stick in your mind.

Spanish Teaching Resources. Presentation about Cuba using the Preterite Tense.

Spanish Teaching Resources. Presentation about Cuba using the Preterite Tense.

I created this PowerPoint to share photos I had taken on a trip to Cuba and to revise the Preterite Tense. Phrases used: Fui de vacaciones a Cuba. Cuba es la isla más grande del Caribe. Pasé unos días en La Habana, la capital. Hay edificios antiguos, parques y monumentos. Lo qué más me gusté fueron los coches americanos de los años cincuenta. Hay música en todos partes. Músicos tocan salsa y están en todos los bares y restaurantes. Pasé un día en la playa. Hizo mucho calor, tomé el sol y descansé. También pasé unos días en el campo donde observé la naturaleza tropical. ¡Me encantó! I ran through the presentation giving time for the students to discuss the meaning and pronunciation in pairs before pouncing on them for their answers and drilling the class. Stronger students were also asked to discuss the formation of the preterite verb, including the infinitive it came from. The presentation could then be used a a template for the students to produce their own presentations about a Spanish-speaking country.

INDEPENDENT THINKING IN MFL

INDEPENDENT THINKING IN MFL

• SEQUENCING ACTIVITY: Teacher will explain students that they will be creating their own version of an imaginary trip to Spain, that there is not only one correct version and that in the process of devising their story the use of past and future tenses should became even clearer. Students will be asked to work in groups of 3-4. Teacher will give each group an envelope with 6 pictures and the cut-up phrases. Students should choose 4, 5, 6 or 7 utterances to place beneath each picture. Teacher will need to clarify that there is not only one correct answer and long as students can justify their sequence of language. Teacher will explain students the sources of information available to them and strategies they need to use to succeed. One of these strategies will refer to literacy: use of punctuation, capital letters and sentence structure. 15 minutes.(An extension activity will be available). Peer assessment: students will be asked to mark each other’s work. 3 types of differentiation: 1. Students in this group will be provided with a reduced number of statements in order to support their learning. Some support from the teacher might also be needed. Vulnerable students will be given leadership opportunities in order to improve their motivation and participation during this task ; 2. Students in this group will be given an envelope with some cut-up phrases highlighted in yellow. They will be given the choice to include or not these phrases in their story. Some support from the teacher might be needed. 3. Students in these groups will be expected to complete the activity with all statements.

Exam practice questions for Upper Senior Level students. This resource was specifically created for my CIE students on the topics of Turismo, Familia, Becha generacional, Salud y Deporte, Empleo, desempleo y Educacion, Medios de comunicacion, Ley y orden - desigualdad y Guerra y paz, Avances medicos, cientificos y tecnologicos, Vida urbana y rural y Medio ambiente - polucion y conservacion (lo siento - sin tildes). Suggestions: print in a large font, laminate and cut. I put them in the Speaking Question Box in the teaching class. Students get their own booklet and are encouraged to think/ write their answer. Other ideas for speaking lessons: Write lots of topic-specific words and put them in a box. Students can do this every lesson when they find a good word to play taboo or describe what the word means.

Writing Practice in Collaboration with native Spanish speakers or teacher/mentors

Writing Practice in Collaboration with native Spanish speakers or teacher/mentors

Students often retain the effects of correction better when they make changes themselves. If they can do this under guidance from an expert helper, such as their teacher, mentor or foreign penfriend, so much the better. This writing activity is designed to work in the browser of any computer, iPad or tablet Teachers assign something they would like their students to write (they can create their own title if desired). It could be a sentence or two, an email, a letter or a full composition. The teacher tells their students to write their text at https://schoolshape.com/write. (If practising a foreign language accents are on the keyboard provided on tablets) The students write their text in the space. The students click the ‘send’ button and enter their expert helper’s email address. In the expert helper’s email inbox will be a message stating the name of the student and a link to their work. The expert helper will be able to make corrections to any orthographical mistakes in the work. The student will immediately see some red underlinings in his/her writing. The student will not see the corrected answer, but will have an opportunity to correct the work by following some hints generated by the system. At the foot of the student’s assignment there is a continuously updated record of the accuracy of his/her writing. You will notice that - when using the integrated keyboard on tablets, it will throw up useful options for foreign accents, making it quick and easy for students to input foreign language written assignments. - pasting text in from elsewhere has been disabled, thus discouraging plagiarism. - there is a built in inductive learning procedure. When work has been corrected by the teacher (or expert mentor, such as a penfriend), the student's work on the same assignment continues ... they can improve their percentage accuracy (displayed on their work) by following an automatic hint system guiding them towards the correct answer. Equipment required This browser activity is available on computers, tablets, iPads and smartphones. It could be done ‘live’ in class or as a homework assignment, or both.
