PRIMARY SPANISH FACTS ACTIVITIES 1

PRIMARY SPANISH FACTS ACTIVITIES 1

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING THE SPANISH-SPEAKING WORLD! - 20 FASCINATING FACTS CARDS, 28 CHALLENGE CARDS, DIFFERENTIATED WRITING/COMPREHENSION ACTIVITIES AND WHOLE-GROUP PRESENTATION / DISCUSSION ACTIVITY ABOUT ALL THINGS SPANISH! This resource really does help to create a lively language learning environment, and offer a popular alternative to more traditional, teacher-led ’information about Spain’ lessons. Children can develop their knowledge of SPAIN AND SPANISH - and through guided whole-group discussion - their home/host country too, in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way, in part independently of the teacher. There is a bonus multi-focus on listening, speaking, pronunciation, reading, writing and spelling, and is a great way of aligning language learning with developing literacy skills in English. This resource comprises the following: 20 FACTS CARDS - there are four facts in each of the following five topic groups: GEOGRAPHY, COUNTRY, LANDMARKS, LANGUAGE and FOOD. There are four cards per A4 sheet, making them the perfect size for young learners. The language on each of the cards ranges from fairly basic to more advanced, which challenges and enhances children’s English skills. WRITING/COMPREHENSION CHALLENGE 1 - there are 2 options: either 2 or 4 fact recording boxes per A4 page. Children read their selected facts, and copy the information in the boxes. Encourage children to be as accurate as possible with their spelling and punctuation, to pay particular attention to the spelling and accents of the SPANISH words that are included, and of course to make sure they are recording the facts in their best handwriting. WRITING/COMPREHENSION CHALLENGE 2 - there are also 2 options: 2 or 4 fact recording boxes in this challenge level. However, there is a more open-ended task: responding to the question “What did you learn?”. This requires children to read their fact card, process the information, and then recreate it in their own words, describing the fact in the context of what they have learned. 28 DIFFERENTIATED COMPREHENSION CHALLENGE CARDS, with answer sheet WHOLE-GROUP PRESENTATION/DISCUSSION ACTIVITY, with every fact included in the presentation resource - I’ve found this a really useful means of encouraging and stimulating classroom discussion. Children can reflect on what they already know about SPAIN, and share it with their peers. Use the facts themselves to prompt discussion about the home/host country, eg “What is our capital city? Is it also our largest city?”, which really does create a successful cross-curricular learning environment. This pack comprises 6 non-editable files in a zipped format. Please read the TERMS OF USE carefully - the pack is copyright, and for single-teacher/purchaser use only. ¡MUCHAS GRACIAS Y BUEN VIAJE!

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

KS3 Spanish Cover Lesson Design your own City

Lesson Covers: How to describe your city (imaginary!) - what's in it and what it has e.g. my city has a king, watchtowers, walls and a dragon. This works best as a cover lesson. It is easy for non-specialists to follow but supports and challenges KS3 students of Spanish well. Could also be adapted for use in lessons by specialists in order to revise 'what's in one's city / town'. It is helpful, but not necessary, if the students have some knowledge of connectives, adjectives and SER / TENER in Spanish. Important key words are provided in each activity of lesson. Dictionaries needed. Lesson involves: Differentiated objectives and starter (quick translation) activity. Activity 1: Teams work to look up words (in Spanish) used to describe what's in a city e.g. murallas, atalayas etc. Next slide gives answers to students so they can write down whatever they were unable to find. Activity 2: Differentiated translation task using key vocabulary they have just looked up in teams. Key words provided as well as higher challenge. Next slide contains answers for peer / self-assessment. Main and final activity: students design and label their own city using key words / sentences they have been working on throughout lesson. Again, this is differentiated by task with key works provided on ppt. Bubble snake review to finish.
