What is beauty? - Parts of the  body and face

What is beauty? - Parts of the body and face

These resources look at Spanish body parts and parts of the face. Students will work towards writing a two-sided essay discussing 'What is beauty?'. They will practice parts of the face and body and in the process use the present tense to write their own poems about body parts. They will address common agreement errors, they will take part in engaging Pictionary style listening tasks, and practise speaking using the game Guess who? Furthermore students will become detectives to dissect a text about beauty pageants, using cognates and additional skills to help understand texts. Lastly they will use body parts along with the verb 'Querrer' in order to prepare for their essay. This topic is fun and engaging, while interesting and thought-provoking - a great hit with students!! Resources are easily printable and adaptable to your SOWs or teaching style. If you like these resources please take a look at the others I have to offer :) Similarly please review so I know how to improve.

Spanish Teaching Resources: Euro 2016 Football lesson.

Spanish Teaching Resources: Euro 2016 Football lesson.

Euro 2016 Resources Product Description. I have planned this lesson not only to teach vocabulary and facts about football, France and Euro 2016, but also to help the students to respond creatively to their learning and hopefully share their passion for football! The PowerPoint uses matching cards, colourful pictures and animations and YouTube extracts set to music to inspire the students. It is planned to use with students from Years 6-9 (the final task is very open-ended). Slide 2 shows a celebratory image of the 2012 winners – Spain! Slide 3 states the objective: Objectivo: To learn about el fútbol & Euro 2016 and to respond creatively to your learning. Slide 4 has a YouTube link to follow to use with the attached worksheet. This uses the official UEFA promotional video (3 mins 57 secs) and the worksheet builds vocabulary, cultural and factual knowledge such as the locations of the stadiums, their capacities, cultural images and numbers of matches, volunteers, teams etc. The worksheet is differentiated with an Extra! challenge section. The answers are on the first page of the worksheet. Slide 6 introduces key vocabulary and can be used with the matching cards. The students should work in pairs/ groups to match the vocabulary and the picture using their previous knowledge, cognates and a process of elimination. Vocabulary: Un futbolista El guardameta El réferi El estadio La pelota La copa Una bandera Un equipo Una tarjeta amarilla La cancha Una camiseta Unos botines The activity is differentiated as follows: All: Match Up! Most: Perfect Pronunciation Challenge! Some: Quick Fire Questions! (Here the students quiz each other: French to English, English to French, spellings, accents…..). Slides 7 to 18 show each word and the matching picture and colourful animations. Slide 19 has all the pictures for a quick recap. Then there is graded questioning: Slides 20 to 31 have A, B, C multiple choice questions. Slides 32 to 45 are “What’s missing?” slides. Then slide 46 has a YouTube link to the official song and video (3 mins 49 secs) and students should note down new nouns and adjectives expressing the emotions they see and feel (if they don’t know the Spanish they can grab a dictionary later!) The creative challenges are presented on slides 46 and 47, this is to either create an acrostic, a calligramme or a poem (there is a poem template provided). This information is also on the accompanying worksheets. Slide 48 provides the opportunity for reflection. I really hope you and your students enjoy these resources!

Goldilocks in Spanish

Goldilocks in Spanish

I prepared these resources for World Book Day, thinking it would be a nice activity to do in MFL alongside the celebration of World Book Day. We first watched/listened to the story read out in Spanish on youtube (see link provided), using our knowledge of the story in English, cognates, pictures etc to work out the meaning of key words. Pupils then had to put the images of the storyboard back in order and match the Spanish card to each picture.

To infinitive and beyond

To infinitive and beyond

An idea prompted by a colleague to make introducing infinitives more appealing!! Just a bit of fun really... I am going to use this as a centre piece for a display in my classroom with all of the most common infinitives GCSE uses. Pupils can then use it to jog their memories about what an infintive is when doing grammar exercises.
