SPAIN COUNTRY FACTS (1)

SPAIN COUNTRY FACTS (1)

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING SPANISH - 20 FASCINATING FACTS CARDS ABOUT ALL THINGS SPANISH - WITH PRESENTATION / DISCUSSION & DIFFERENTIATED WRITING ACTIVITIES 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 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. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL ONE - there are two options: either two or four 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. RECORDING SHEET CHALLENGE LEVEL TWO - there are also two options: two or four 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. 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 5 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!

Spanish Halloween lesson - Halloween en Español - ¿De qué te disfrazas?

Spanish Halloween lesson - Halloween en Español - ¿De qué te disfrazas?

A fantastically engaging and spooky Halloween lesson for both Primary and Key stage 3. This lesson compromises introducing Halloween costumes in Spanish and has the objective of being able to say what you are dressing up as for Halloween in Spanish by the end of the lesson. The objective is achieved through engaging games such as choral repetition, beat the teacher, "which is missing?". Once the vocabulary has been practiced with the pupils, it is time for them to get out of their seats and solve a mystery involving the characters to whom they have just been introduced! The mystery involves solving a number of clues by answering questions in Spanish based on familiar vocabulary. The pupils take the first letter of each answer and are left with an anagram of the culprit to the crime. The first pupil/pair/team to rearrange the anagram and find the culprit are the winners. Once the mystery is solved, the pupils learn how to ask and answer what they are dressing up as, for Halloween. They are also encouraged to challenge themselves by giving reasons for their chosen costume by learning a number of Halloween related adjectives. The pupils then consolidate this new vocabulary by undertaking a survey of other pupils in the room to find out their Halloween costumes. Note: The clues in the "Who stole the Queen's lunch" should be cut up and placed around the room for the pupils to read. Mix these up so that they don't reveal the answer too easily! Included in the survey slide and the "¿quién es el culpable?" slide are 2 embedded videos with Spanish Halloween songs to create a spooky atmosphere for when the pupils undertake the tasks. Also included in this lesson are Halloween Flashcards, these are to be used as the "suspects" when solving the mystery. It is useful to print these off and lay them out somewhere visible for the pupils when solving the anagram as they include the correct spellings.
