SPANISH VOCABULARY CARDS

SPANISH VOCABULARY CARDS

This combined set of games and activities really does help students to develop and embed their beginning SPANISH vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way. My students love to work independently, and find this a really successful way of embedding vocab into their longer-term memory. They enjoy the opportunity to quiz or test themselves and each other on a regular basis - they’re a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary ‘drilling tasks’, and really do help to create a lively language learning environment. The pack features 198 BEGINNERS WORDS AND PHRASES that have always given my students a flying start: **Los saludos Los días de la semana Los meses y las estaciones del año Los números 0-40 Mi familia Los colores Las partes del cuerpo El tiempo Palabras frecuentes Frases útiles para la clase Preguntas y respuestas ** Each set comprises: SPANISH and ENGLISH game cards, with all the words and phrases to use in a variety of games and activities - I’ve suggested a range of games and activities that have worked well for me. This file also includes the game card template, which encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of SPANISH practically and creatively. There’s definitely a bit of prep involved, but you’ll be able to use the cards for many years, especially if you laminate them. REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE WORKBOOK - this is an 18-page booklet. There are 3 differentiated RECALL & WRITE challenges to help your students really practice and review the vocabulary: CHILLOUT CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in ENGLISH from a SPANISH prompt - all the words/phrases are in their language category CHAMPION CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in SPANISH from an ENGLISH prompt - again, all the words and phrases are in their language category SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE: all the words and phrases appear in random order, and switch from SPANISH to ENGLISH at each question - this really does put students’ memories to the test! Encourage students to complete the NOTES & NEXT STEPS sheets regularly - this helps promote reflective learning, encourages students to think about progress they have made, to think about targets for improvement, and how to achieve those targets. There are four non-editable files in a zipped format in this resource pack. Please read the Terms of Use carefully - this resource is copyright, and for single-teacher / purchaser / classroom use only. ¡MUCHAS GRACIAS Y QUE OS DIVIRTÁIS!
