KS4 Spanish Typical Day in Spain GSCE new AQA course

KS4 Spanish Typical Day in Spain GSCE new AQA course

Lesson covers: Basics of a typical day in Spain. I created this lesson in place of lesson on Cambian las costumbres in AQA book as I felt that it is more useful for students if they revise and have practice talking about a typical day in Spain using the present tense rather than the preterite, as is the case in the book. So, if a photo / roleplay should come up related to life in Spain, it will be easier for students to use what they have learnt in this lesson. By the end of this lesson, I want my students to be able to talk about the basics of a typical day in Spain (time Spanish get up, when and a little about what they eat, shops closing at lunch, the siesta etc.) in Spain. It is also good, but not essential, if you have already covered comparisons with your students. Lesson includes: Starter based on Tener and Tener que + infinitives. Activity One: Students write what they know about Spain in Spanish using pictures and key words on slide as prompts. Activity Two: Reading (differentiated resources included with key words / questions in Spanish) about life in Spain. Activity Three: Students add / improve what they wrote about a day in Spain using what they now have learnt from readings. Activity Four: Review of comparisons and superlatives as well as practice translating these into English and Spanish. Final Activity: Speaking practice based on AQA photo style exam. Preparatory slide with some key words students need to describe photo. Then slide with photo and questions as well as option for peer assessment. Review.

GIANT Spanish Culturopoly Board Game

GIANT Spanish Culturopoly Board Game

The second of our GIANT Board Games, Culturopoly focuses on teaching students about the important people, products, and places of the countries of Mexico, Spain, Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica, Cuba, Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Venezuela. This is a great whole-class game that transforms the floor of your classroom into a giant board game. With a style of game play similar to Monopoly, students travel around the game board collecting cultural facts about the various countries. Once they gather enough facts, if they land on a "maleta" space, they can answer some trivia questions about a particular country in order to earn a "boleto de ida y vuelta". The team with the most "boletos" at the end end of the game wins. The best part of this game is that it is easily adaptable to any age group and proficiency level. With three different difficulty levels (Easy, Medium, Hard), it is perfect for an exploratory or Latin American Studies class all the way through an upper level Spanish class. While the Easy mode allows for students with no knowledge of Spanish, the Medium mode starts to introduce target language terms for students with minimal Spanish language proficiency, and the Hard mode focuses on play completely in the target language. This is a great way to review for culture portions of midterm or final exams, or for any day that you just need something different. In the future, there will be expansion packs to add different Spanish-speaking countries to the game. Either way, any teacher will get a LOT of use out of this one game. This Resource Includes: -Complete Set-up and Game Play Instructions for each mode -Fifty 8 1/2 x 11 Game Spaces with pictures representative of cultural items -12 Boletos de Ida y Vuelta (one per country) -12 Easy Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -12 Medium Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -12 Hard Difficulty Country Challenge Cards w/ answer keys -36 Culture Fact Cards
