Spanish Grammatical NOUN Gender: ¿Masculino O Femenino?

Spanish Grammatical NOUN Gender: ¿Masculino O Femenino?

(1)
You probably taught that the ending -o is usually used to determine if a noun is masculine, and that the ending -a, determines if the noun is feminine. The following sample exercise takes students to a second level of determining GENDER. Acronyms can help students determine the gender of nouns when then have other endings. All students need to do is check the endings of the words. There will always be exceptions to the rule. Nevertheless, follow this rule of thumb: If words en in MA-L-O-N-E-R-S, they will most likely be masculine. If the end in D-IÓN-Z-A, they will most likely be feminine. You will get a sample worksheet with exercises. I have another resource on my store with more exercises and a KEY.

Get your students ready to write. These guided sentence writing Graphic Organizers will guide your students through the process of sentence writing. Choose from 7 different sentence structures. You can use the color coded samples or the plain black and white organizers. I have made them in English and in Spanish. I usually use Spanish ones at the end of the year with Spanish 1 or after Chapter 1 with the higher levels. Make as many copies as you need. I use these organizers in different ways: Example: As a ticket out the door or Bell work As an introduction to paragraph writing (especially for the more advanced classes). You give them a simple topic: Mis vacaciones. You provide them with 3 different organizers and ask them to write three sentences or more, about the topic in question. As they practice, they will get used to writing complex and detailed sentences in Spanish or English or any other language, with the correct word order and paying attention to grammatical features. Graphic organizers for compound sentences will be added soon.
