Numbers in French. Count from 1 to 100. All images from Québec

(0)
Miraflores does language in context. Here is a way to learn and review the numbers 1-100 with images from Québec. This is an ORAL exercise. Some teachers might like it for review and consolidation while others use it for preseting the numbers. (Stop and repeat when your students get stuck.) Numbers 70 to 100 are hard! I have opted for not writing the numbers out because pronounciation is much better when students listen instead of reading. The numbers are in order, from 1 to 100. Students look at the image and say the number. They can work in pairs, in threes, the entire class can participate. If there are images that are of interest, take a moment to talk about Québec, Canada´s French speaking province where all the street signs are in French. Encourage your students to read the words they do not know and you will notice how they like to figure them out. The images help!

I have thought long and hard about why geography is not taught properly at the primary level and admit that I really don't know the answer. So instead of getting upset, I put together these maps. I put each one on a separate page so I could just use the one I needed. This worked for me, so I hope it also works for you. The maps are contextualized: there is a map of different musical styles; another of the conquerors and the explorers; a map of the cities of Spain shows where some famous Spanish painters were born. Mapas de Latinoamérica Mapas de España Maps! Maps! Maps! Clear, well drawn, easy to reproduce! Each map provides essential information so your students can master the geography of the Spanish speaking world. Much more than just countries and capitals! Everything in the target language: Spanish. Cclick on Preview above to examine the entire download. Included: 1. Subject matter: geography of Latin America and Spain (11 different maps) 2. Vocabulary: names of countries and capitals, names of cardinal points, names of oceans, names of various famous people and places 3. Grammar: ser, llamar, estar Oral practice: ¿Cómo se llama? ¿Es...? ¿De dónde es....? 4. Internet: Key word list to facilitate a search 11 maps, each a separate printable page. Contextualized maps. Use a variety of devices to teach geography: musical styles, conquerors and explorers, artists. Show different perspectives to learn map reading . IF YOU LIKE THIS, I have put together a second set of content based maps called: Spanish in Europe and the Americas. Content based maps and more. It is meant for Spanish Beginners 1, can be used at all levels. PS After I did these, I wrote three mini-thematic units for beginners. Compare Spain and Perú, compare Barcelona and Mexico City and the regions of Latin America. So we compared two countries, then two cities and then because there were so many countries and the kids were having trouble, I put the countries is groups (Andean countries, Central American countries, etc.) All three come in a single download.

Those of you who have used my other set of maps (the free maps) probably want to know why I put together a second set. There are several reasons, the first is that I get bored very quickly and after doing the first set for several years, with several groups, I knew there were other ideas I could implement. The idea of teaching the alphabet while learning geography worked well, so then I added some basic information without maps. I wanted my students to know from the outset that some countries were very large, others very small and that in some cases the small countries were very densely populated. I also found that I had to keep going back to show Spain on one side of the ocean and the other Spanish speaking countries on the other side of the ocean many times. Contextualized maps! Practice the alphabet and geography, first with basic information and then with a game. Learn to recognize the shapes of different Spanish speaking countries! Practice the pronunciation of the names of the countries! Analyze and compare the size and population of different countries and compare them to your own country. Make logical conclusions with the information. Combine lots of content with very elementary language. Only with content-based units is it possible to introduce so much cultural information! Click on Preview above to read the entire download. Included: 1. Subject matter: geography; countries and languages 2. Vocabulary: alphabet, countries, capitals, languages 3. Grammar: es / no es; es / son; singular and plural of nouns 4. Oral practice: names of countries, capitals; alphabet game 5. Homework: indentify countries where different languages are spoken 6.

Add to that a specific request, and presto, you have interested students and great results. Let your students follow their own interests. There are assignments on sports, ecology, artists, places and more.
