Spanish Conditional Tense, Interactive Grammar Videos

Spanish Conditional Tense, Interactive Grammar Videos

This is an ideal resource for setting as a home learning task, either to consolidate learning in class or for students to study independently either before or in class. Students can listen at their own speed to videos about how to conjugate Spanish verbs in the conditional tense (regular and irregular). The “multiplier effect” I mention means students can apply this knowledge to new verbs. There are verbal questions in each video to translate verbs from Spanish to English and vice versa so they can assess their understanding and you can ask them to write down their answers so you can see evidence of their work too. That way you will know how to support them if needed. It is ideal for KS3 classes that need to be challenged or GCSE classes. A-level classes can also use it to recap the key processes. If you visit my YouTube channel you will find other grammar videos for Spanish and French too.

Spanish PRETERITE song lessons with METACOGNITION “¿Qué hice, yo?” (Taylor Swift - Shake it off)

A song written by yours truly to the tune of ‘Shake it off’ by Taylor Swift to learn preterite phrases and endings! This has been turned into a couple of lessons, focusing on metacognition in the context of learning content to music. The lesson starts with information on why we recall lyrics to songs from the BBC website. Students then fill in the gaps to the lyrics before seeing the complete version. Backing tracks have been included so you can sing in class! Slides containing pictures representing the lyrics to test their memory. Speaking activities where students roll a dice and answer preterite questions (could use phrases from the lyrics in their answers). Finally 6 online resources (Quizlets and quizzes) to consolidate the preterite (regular, irregular and reflexives). Please review this resource!

Viva -Spanish Knowledge Checks (Can be used for homework, pre/post testing or revision)

Viva -Spanish Knowledge Checks (Can be used for homework, pre/post testing or revision)

A series of knowledge check questions that go through every topic of Viva 1. Each table has between 6 and 24 questions which test the student on their understanding of the topic. They could be used for homework by providing the student with a blank sheet to fill in once the lesson content has been taught or, as a pre-test before the lesson content is taught, revisiting the knowledge check once all lesson content has been delivered. How I have been using them is… Step 1: Provide the student with the knowledge check table after teaching the content in order to ascertain what they know. They write their answers in the grid in black/blue ink. Step 2: Ask students to choose three colour highlighters. They MUST NOT add any answers and at this point I make sure that they are only holding highlighters and not normal pens. Teacher displays the answers (all answer grids provided in this resource pack) and students just highlight in the following way: green for secure answer, yellow for partially there, red for not understood/attempted. (Of course, they can use different colours but ask them to make a key!) STEP 3: students see from the blank answers/highlighted answers, where they need to revise. They update their score on the progress tracker for that particular topic and then identify the questions which need most revision. STEP 4: I provided my students with photocopies of the answer sheet or uploaded it onto our school homework system. Alternatively, if lesson time permits, we spend some time making personalised revision cards/mind-maps. Homework is then set to revise the vocab needed, learning any answers that were red from 1st attempt. STEP 5: The SAME knowledge check is done the following week but this time students use a different colour pen to add answers to their previously unknown/incorrect as well as improve their partially correct if they can. Once again, answers are gone through. STEP 6: Students record their second attempt mark on the progress tracker. I have issued consequences for lack of progress and written letters home to indicate that intervention is needed after school and have used the knowledge checks as evidence. Of course, they do not have to be used as above and could be given pre topic teaching and then again post topic or just as vocab learning homeworks. Hope they’re useful! The idea is obviously to help students secure knowledge but also to engage them in their learning/revision. I put two songs on whilst they complete the grid and find that making it a timed exercise promotes a bit of competition! NOTE: the vocab/structures were all taken from the Viva 1 textbook. Some key words are repeated across topics to really embed the spelling/understanding!

Writing: TV and cinema (opinions) - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Speaking / Writing)

Writing: TV and cinema (opinions) - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Speaking / Writing)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson starter is a differentiated reading / writing / grammar task based on the review of a famous cartoon - Secret Life of Pets. Students read the overview of the cartoon and complete the tasks. Then they check the answers followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included a mini-test to recap / check whether students remember how to conjugate ‘tener’ in present tense. Consequently they play the Speaking Cube - 6 sides of the cube are completed with the topic questions for the half-term. Students roll a cube (you can either ask them to glue them together or you can make them yourself). I figured 6 cubes per year for each year group is an easy enough task to continue repeating the questions of all half-terms for the whole school year. The template is in the end of the lesson in case you need to change the questions (colours correspond to the difficulty of the question (core- blue, extension is green, violet is killer and pink is super killer). Then they get to revise verb 1 + verb 2 structure and complete a writing task. Before writing I tried to give them some ideas by showing them the Spanish trailer of the cartoon mentioned in the starter activity (they loved it!). The trailer is from Youtube. Finally they self/peer -assess their work by way of analising the success criteria and play a vocabulary game as a reward. The younger students might be allowed to use a dictionary or to think of any word. In any case, feel free to change the rules! Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas! Enjoy!

Role-play: opinions on TV / movies  - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Role-play)

Role-play: opinions on TV / movies - Spanish - AQA KS3/KS4 GCSE (Role-play)

This is a lesson on TV shows for an early GCSE Spanish class which can be used with a higher year 8 students. The lesson starter is a recap on some simple concepts (articles / gender / adjectival agreement/ spelling) to wake the students up followed by phonics practice (resiting tongue twister!). Then I included a mini-test to recap / check whether students remember topic-related vocabulary. Then they get to revise topic words via online quizlet activity. Students are to choose what quizlet task they want to do based on their level therefore this engaging task is differentiated. Then I have included a game - Roll-A-Word - Students roll a dice to complete different tasks related to the new and / or familiar words (both learning and revising). They count the value of the completed dices to make the task more competitive. Then they revise question words and how to form different types of questions in Spanish. They then jot their thoughts on a Role Play task in pairs (using grammar help - note: we use VCOP mat so if you have one you will need to change the numbers of the grammar points, if not you need to delete few bits, the examples of structures are provided anyway) and complete in in writing individually . Then their ‘Time Pair Share’ the Role Play and self/peer -assess their work by way of analising the success criteria (you might want to show it prior to the task for the novices). Please let me know if there are any problems / ideas! Enjoy!

Gustar pattern multi sensory practice.

Gustar pattern multi sensory practice.

Explanation of one of the most common patterns in Spanish. Essential to master the true expression of complex opinions and complex questions. The activity is multimodal, combining audio, speaking, moving and seeing. Check the free sample with the instructions attached. It includes the models and a sample of sentences to translate with each model. The idea is that students master the pattern in order to free themselves to express whatever they may want to say. It makes for endless hours of practice with students totally engaged. Students queue and love coming to the board to point. It may need some previous practice to get the dynamic going. Students are amazed by truly understanding and being able to use verbs such as importar, dar, hacer, the conditional forms of gustar, encantar, etc.
