BEGINNER SPANISH VOCABULARY CARDS : REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE WORKBOOKS 198 words & phrases, with matching English cards My students really enjoy working independently with this set of Spanish beginner vocabulary games and activities, and find that way of working really does help them to develop their confidence and embed the vocabulary into their longer-term memory. They love to quiz / test themselves and each other on a regular basis - it’s a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary ‘drilling tasks’. There are lots of small and whole-group games to play, and I’ve described a range that have worked well for us. I encourage students to complete the Notes and Next Steps sheet 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. Students also note any new vocabulary they learn, helping them to develop a really comprehensive vocab reference bank.

Each set features 99 beginner Spanish words and phrases that students are likely to meet in the introductory stages of their Spanish program:

Set 1:

= Los saludos
= Los días de la semana
= Los meses y las estaciones del año
= Los números 0-20
= Mi familia
= Palabras frecuentes
= Frases útiles para la clase
= Preguntas y respuestas

Set 2:

= Los saludos
= Los colores
= Las partes del cuerpo
= Los números 21-40
= El tiempo
= Frases útiles para la clase
= Preguntas y respuestas

Each workbook features all the words and phrases alphabetically Spanish-English and 3 differentiated Recall & Write activities to help your students really practice and review the vocabulary, and to work on spelling and writing:

Recall Challenge One: students write from memory all the words and phrases in English from a Spanish prompt - all the words/phrases are in their language category

Recall Challenge Two: 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

Recall Challenge Three: 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!

There’s definitely some prep involved, as there are 198 words and phrases cards, so 396 cards in total - do laminate them if you can, as they are far more learner-friendly and will last for years.
