SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1 Central America - Reading Comprehension - Cut and paste Activity - Group Discussion - Poster Design & Creation - Writing Activity The following project pack contains 3 sections: 1. COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS 2. PICTURE ELEMENTS 3. POSTER TEMPLATES COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS are short texts containing information on the country in question. Students are to read each extracts and make notes of the important points as a reading comprehension activity. The PICTURE ELEMENTS have been specifically designed to portray information contained in the extracts. Students are then presented with the POSTER TEMPLATES, there is 1 poster template for each of the countries in question. Each template has 4 blank spaces each of which should contain a cutout of a picture element. Next to each space there are blank lines for a short paragraph to be written. An option would be to divide students into small groups and assigning a different central american country to each group. Within each group, students will discuss the main information points relevant to the country assigned, select 4 picture elements relevant to the country and together come up with 4 short paragraphs relating the picture to the country on the basis of what they have learned from the extract. This is a multi-level project activity as the length and complexity of the paragraph can be adjusted to the level of the students in questions. EXTENSION: This project can lead onto a bigger and more independent activity, where students go on to carry out their own research on the assigned country (in other words they create their own extracts) and proceed to nd suitable images or even their own drawings to create large posters. Ultimately they would have to produce short paragraphs relating their images/drawings to the information collected. Total no. of pages: 31

PRIMARY SPANISH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (1)

PRIMARY SPANISH - 20 FACTS TASK CARDS, RECORDING SHEETS, DISCUSSION ACTIVITY (1)

PERFECT FOR INTRODUCING AND EXPLORING SPAIN! 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.

SPANISH CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

SPANISH CITIES - FIVE DIFFERENTIATED WORD SEARCHES WITH ANSWER KEY AND TEMPLATE

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AND DISCOVERING MAJOR CITIES IN SPAIN! SOPAS DE LETRAS are a fabulous way of encouraging students to engage with the written word in SPANISH, refreshing and reinforcing language as they complete the grids. This set features five differentiated word searches, with each consecutive grid increasing in challenge. Students can tell in which direction the words are written by looking at the arrow key on each grid. There is an answer key for each word search, so that students can check their own or each others’ answers - or use for a little extra help if they need it! There's a reference sheet of all cities included in the searches, which you can share between small groups of students, or give one to each student to stick into their learning workbooks as an all-year-round reference. Use as starters, refreshers, plenaries, pick-me-ups or fun-time fillers at any time during the school year, as well as when you’re discussing the geography of SPAIN. For a real focus on the cities of SPAIN, and to facilitate learner independence, photocopy all the grids as a workbook, and let students simply work their way through. The workbook format is great for home learning activities too. The differentiated word search templates are a great way of getting students to apply their knowledge of SPANISH a little more practically and creatively - they create word searches either individually or in teams to share across the classroom - completing these and the pre-prepared grids against a timer works well too! Encourage students to explore SPAIN a little further, and include what they consider to be major cities that are not already featured. The resource consists of 3 non-editable files.

5. Countries and nationalities in Spanish

5. Countries and nationalities in Spanish

Learn the words for man and woman, and learn that adjectives sometimes change for different genders. Label a map with English, Welsh, and others. Match sentence halves that describe people, eg., Jeremy Corbyn is an English politician. Practice your geography finding out if Montenegro is un país, a country, or a city, una ciudad; then answering questions about where some cities are ... ¿Dónde está Buenos Aires? Children can extend these activities by using an atlas and making their own questions to flumux their colleagues.

SPANISH VOCABULARY (1&2) PRACTICE & REVISION - 198 WORDS & PHRASES

SPANISH VOCABULARY (1&2) PRACTICE & REVISION - 198 WORDS & PHRASES

PERFECT FOR DEVELOPING LANGUAGE SKILLS AS WELL AS PRACTICING AND REVISING SPANISH VOCABULARY! This combined set of games and activities really does help students to develop and embed their beginning SPANISH vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can quiz/test themselves and each other on a regular basis - they're a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary 'drilling tasks'. The pack features 198 BEGINNING WORDS AND PHRASES that students are likely to meet in the INTRODUCTORY stages of SPANISH: * Los saludos * Los días de la semana * Los meses y las estaciones del año * Los números 0-40 * Los colores * Mi familia * Las partes del cuerpo * El tiempo * Palabras frecuentes * Frases útiles para la clase * Preguntas y respuestas I've described the resource as suitable for ages GRADES 6-9, but it does depend on the age at which your students began their SPANISH program - the games and activities work well with any appropriate learning group, depending on their starting point. Each set comprises: SPANISH and ENGLISH game cards, with all the words and phrases to use in a variety of games and activities - I've suggested a range of games and activities that have worked well for me. This file also includes the game card template, which encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of SPANISH practically and creatively. REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE WORKBOOK - this is an 18-page booklet. There are 3 differentiated RECALL & WRITE challenges to help your students really practice and review the vocabulary: CHILLOUT CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in ENGLISH from a SPANISH prompt - all the words/phrases are in their language category CHAMPION CHALLENGE: 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 SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE: 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! Encourage students to complete the NOTES & NEXT STEPS sheets 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. The sets are also available individually if you prefer, each priced at $4.00. There are four non-editable files in a zipped format in this resource pack.
