Lesson Covers: For foundation students of Spanish: Revision of present tense, the preterite and future GOING TO tenses. For higher students: Revision of a range of tenses (present, preterite, imperfect, future WILL and conditional WOULD tenses) with complex idiomatic expressions for higher ability students included.
Ideally, this revision session would take place over two lessons.
I have designed this lesson for my year 10 and year 11 students September 2017.
Starter activity - word jumble for students to create own sentences in Spanish.
Differentiated objectives - main purpose - strengthen knowledge of most important verbs and tenses for all GCSE Spanish students.
Activity One: Review of most common infinitives in Spanish - quick translation task.
Activity Two: Review of present tense in Spanish. Students are reminded of what must follow opinions in Spanish as well as other major rules (jugar + A etc.) This is followed by differentiated translation activity for all students with answers provided on next slide.
Carousel Activity - I've provided worksheets here. Class is to be divided into foundation and higher students and worksheets to be given to each. Each worksheet includes a review of how to form a particular tense, with key verbs included e.g. foundation students are provided ONLY with basic verbs / persons they need e.g. fui / fuimos for preterite tense. The worksheets of middle and higher ability students contain all persons of main verbs and are more detailed.
Idea is that each student spends at least 10 - 15 minutes on each worksheet. When they finish or feel confident that they have revised their tense, they move onto next tense. Each worksheet also contains practice exercises for the student. Clear instructions are provided on the ppt. It's important that students are actively learning as they go along - rather than referring to the notes on the worksheet. Clear instructions are provided for students on worksheets too.
Final Task: Students put what they have been learning / working through into practice. This is an 'unscramble the egg' challenge where students have to translate parts of a text in order for it to make sense. This final task is differentiated. I have created separate resources for this task, which are also on the ppt.
