PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING SPANISH VOCABULARY!
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. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can quiz/test themselves and each other on a regular basis - they're a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary 'drilling tasks'.
The pack features 198 BEGINNING WORDS AND PHRASES that students are likely to meet in the INTRODUCTORY stages of SPANISH:
* Los saludos
* Los días de la semana
* Los meses y las estaciones del año
* Los números 0-40
* Los colores
* Mi familia
* Las partes del cuerpo
* El tiempo
* Palabras frecuentes
* Frases útiles para la clase
* Preguntas y respuestas
I've described the resource as suitable for ages GRADES 6-9, but it does depend on the age at which your students began their SPANISH program - the games and activities work well with any appropriate learning group, depending on their starting point.
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.
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.
¡MUCHAS GRACIAS Y QUE OS DIVIRTÁIS!
