KS2-3 Spanish-Reading strategies arrow-whole lesson introduction to staged approach

KS2-3 Spanish-Reading strategies arrow-whole lesson introduction to staged approach

Although the skills to access a text come naturally to some students, many others need to be supported in developing the necessary strategies. This tried and tested approach to reading provides a visual strategy which can be applied to a wide variety of texts in a second language or in English, improving not only language skills, but also general literacy. Particularly useful when exploiting authentic materials, it can equally be applied to more traditional texts and, once embedded, enables students of all ages to work successfully with more complex source materials than would otherwise have been the case. This resource models the strategy with a simple Spanish text, however it can be applied to texts of a wide range of difficulty. It includes a ten slide teaching presentation to introduce the strategy, comprehensive teaching notes accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus student sheets and the strategy arrow, which can be laminated for repeated use. The resource is also available modelled with a French text and a German text.

SUPER SPANISH MASTERCHEF GAME BUNDLE (food vocabulary competition)

SUPER SPANISH MASTERCHEF GAME BUNDLE (food vocabulary competition)

This resource is 89 pages long and includes 7 Masterchef-themed based competition games for Spanish students. Most of the games can be used with any level (elementary, intermediate and advanced students of Spanish aged 12+) and all of them include clear instructions on how to play as well as teacher answer key. All the games are designed to be played by two teams (red team and blue team) but they can easily be adapted to be used with more than two teams (for instance, groups of 3 to 5 students) or even as pairwork. Thanks to these games, students will become contestants of the popular competition game Masterchef and practice food vocabulary in a motivating and creative way. I have used the games included in this pack separately in different lessons and levels, but also all together as a final competition game the last week of the course or as a final revision game after dealing with a vocabulary unit on food. The competition games included are: - Guess the dish (12 ready to cut out cards) - Vocabulary race (2 worksheets based on food categories) - Menu competition (16 ready to cut out cards to create a menu) - Find the odd one out (6 worksheets) - Surprise shopping list (2 worksheets + menu template) - Dishes from around the world (52 ready to cut out cards) - Food taboo (60 ready to cut out cards) Unfortunately TES is having problems showing the preview of this resource due to its length (89 pages) and it won't let me upload it in a zip file. Therefore, I've included images for you to have a closer look at some of the worksgeets and games included in this pack. Sorry for the incovenience. Please, leave a comment after downloading!

10 SCHOOL TIMETABLE TEMPLATES + SPANISH VOCABULARY

This resource includes 10 different school timetable templates to use with your students in class. Timetibles are ideal not only to practice days of the week, times and school subjects, but much more. That is why these timetables are theme/vocabulary based, so that students can also practice vocabulary related to sports, school objects, horoscopes, extracurricular activities, preferences, coloquial expressions, etc. in a fun way. Students can customize their own timetables by adding their personal information. I have even used the timetables as a first day introduction activity. Since there are 10 templates available, you can let your students choose the one they like best and then make them introduce themselves to the class with it. It also works very well to do a question-answer activity in pairs. Please, leave a comment after downloading! Thank you! Visit my TES shop, SPANISH MIX & MATCH, for tons of great Spanish resources.
