This cute book is a fun way for students to learn Spanish clothing vocabulary. The main character, Abuela Rosa, loves to shop! She sings as she brings home her bag (bolsa). She describes in Spanish each item she bought, then the class guesses what it is in English. I read this story with my students by projecting this to our Activeboard. I also print a copy, laminate, and bind it for our classroom library. My students LOVE reading it.
This mega pack contains:
♥La Ropa - book (both color background and white for grayscale printing)
♥La Ropa - book partially in English for class library.
♥8 student printable worksheet pages for independent practice or assessment.
♥Color flash cards with picture and Spanish clothing vocabulary. This can be used as traditional flash cards, or for a game of memory in centers (my kids love this for centers).
♥Grayscale flash cards, I like to print these on cardstock for students and have them keep them in a sandwich bag in their desk for partner practice.
♥ALL FLASH ARE ALSO IN ENGLISH FOR ESL/ELL STUDENTS
♥4 corners game (whole class activity) with the clothing page posters and matching flash cards.
I read this book during our unit on clothing. Prior to reading this book, I build background knowledge of Spanish vocabulary relating to clothing with my students. We have lessons, center activities (using flash cards in this packet), and learn many items of clothing.
When we read, it is exciting for students to “guess” what is in Abuela Rosa’s bag by listening to the description. As we turn the page, the students get to see if their guess was correct. I have my older students draw or write their guess on a sheet of paper.
When using this book in the Spanish classroom, it works as a springboard to discuss and learn about language skills such as grammar, punctuation, and mechanics. We talk about how Abuela Rosa is learning English, and we are learning Spanish. Her story can help us learn more about how the Spanish language is alike and different from our own. Learn Spanish and have fun!
