SPANISH TELLING TIME - 3 DIFFERENTIATED DOMINOES GAMES (2)

SPANISH TELLING TIME - 3 DIFFERENTIATED DOMINOES GAMES (2)

PERFECT FOR PRACTICING AND REVISING HOW TO TELL TIME IN SPANISH AND GREAT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS - 3 GAMES, 3 CHALLENGES!FOCUS ON FIVE / TEN PAST AND FIVE / TEN TO THE HOURDINKY SPANISH TELLING TIME DOMINOES GAMES (2) features analog clock times in SPANISH. The games will help your students develop their skill in telling time in SPANISH in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, learning independently of the teacher. There’s a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, and reading. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can work happily challenging themselves and each other to create a perfect domino time-sequence line, on the classroom floor or on a long(ish) table, by matching the times and the clock faces.There are three levels of challenge in each set:CHILLOUT CHALLENGE features the analog times in numerical order, 1 — 12CHAMPION CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, which really gets studentsthinking about how to tell time in SPANISHSUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE features all the times in topsy-turvy order, with the clock faces first,so students really do need to know how to tell time in SPANISH in order to create a perfectdomino time sequence!Each set also features a SPANISH-English reference booklet with all the time phrases written out in both sequential and topsy-turvy order, which students find really helpful as a learning support resource.I've classed the games as suitable for Grades 6-9, but it really does depend on when your students began SPANISH, and what stage they are currently working at. They're really effective as a learning tool with any appropriate grade group. Play regularly as you work with telling time to map both improved recall and word recognition, as well as increasing confidence. Play as warmers, starters and plenaries across the whole school year too for maximum reinforcement -playing against a timer in teams works really well too.The resource consists of three, non-editable files in a zipped format:- dominoes games x 3 challenge levels- reference bookletPlease read the TERMS OF USE carefully - this resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only.¡MUCHAS GRACIAS Y QUE OS DIVIRTÁIS!

SPANISH SPEAKING PROMPTS - 100 CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET (1)

SPANISH SPEAKING PROMPTS - 100 CARDS & REFERENCE BOOKLET (1)

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING SPEAKING SKILLS IN SPANISH - QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS WITH A FOCUS ON BEGINNING CONVERSATIONPERFECT for speaking practice, and multi-skill language learning, TALK TIME IN SPANISH is a set of 100 question and answer prompt cards that give your students structured talk opportunities, and will also get them listening, reading and writing. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work.The prompt cards feature language and structures that your students are likely to meet in the earlier stages of their SPANISH learning - I've classed the resource as suitable for GRADES 6-9, but it really does depend on the age at which your students began their SPANISH learning, and the stage they're currently working at.The reference booklet includes all the questions and answers written out in full. Students find this a very useful learning support resource and it's also a handy whole-group pronunciation practice and reading-out loud resource. Students use the NOTES AND NEXT STEPS template to reflect on their learning, and think about what they might reasonably do to progress in their learning.The question and answer writing templates give students the opportunity to apply their SPANISH very practically, as they create both questions and answers for each other. This is a great team activity too.GRUPO UNO is a great complementary resource to other ensembles in the series in terms of progression, but works perfectly well as a standalone resource too. You can also use the prompt cards for a whole range of games, and I've described how to play several you can start with.The resource consists of two non-editable files in a zipped format:- PROMPT CARDS with QUESTION AND ANSWER PROMPT CARD TEMPLATE- REFERENCE BOOKLET WITH NOTES AND NEXT STEPSThe prompt cards do take a bit of prep: printing and laminating. Laminating is definitely recommended, as you’ll be able to use the cards for years to come. The reference booklet works best copied and stapled double-sided for students to keep in their learning folders.Please read the Terms of Use carefully: this resource is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only.MUCHAS GRACIAS Y QUE OS DIVIRTÁIS!
