Guided Sentence Writing Organizer

(1)
As a Spanish L2 and as an ESL teacher, I have seen my students struggle with sentence writing. For this reason, I have created several GUIDED SENTENCE WRITING graphic organizers. All my students use them, as they progress from simple three word sentences to the most elaborate AP style sentences in the two languages. I have designed them with English and Spanish prompts. I use the English prompts with the lower levels and the Spanish ones with the upper levels or Honors Courses. Use it with any AP course, GCSE or IB Spanish B program.
Spanish Grammatical NOUN Gender: ¿Masculino O Femenino?

Spanish Grammatical NOUN Gender: ¿Masculino O Femenino?

(3)
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.
Masculino o Femenino: How to recognize grammatical NOUN gender in Spanish
majomournighanmajomournighan

Masculino o Femenino: How to recognize grammatical NOUN gender in Spanish

(1)
Most words that end in MA-L-O-N-E-R-S will require a masculine gender marker: el, un, los, unos. Most words that end in D-IÓN-Z-A will require a feminine gender marker: la, una, las, unas. This product gives students of any level, a quick drill on grammatical gender. They have to classify and place a group of words under the masculine or the feminine column. This product is a breeze to grade, because it already includes a KEY for the teacher. Use it as a game, bell work, ticket out the door, Quiz, or as you see fit. Find more resources that are excellent for practising singular and plural, or quick and simple tickets out the door for more masculine and feminine, at my store. Profe Majo Spanish.

¿Masculino o Femenino? - Beyond "-o" and "-a"

(0)
Is it masculine or feminine when a word doesn’t end in “-o” or “-a”? As I teach my students how to recognize the grammatical NOUN gender of a word, I teach the about MA-L-O-N-E-R-S and D-IÓN-Z-A endings. There are always exceptions to the rule, but this is a good start. I use this worksheet as a quick assessment with my students. It is quick and easy. Sometimes, I use one row per day, and sometimes I use this as a quick assessment. It is easy to grade and it comes with a KEY for the teacher. The last page is blank. Teachers can fill in the words they want students to practice. I have made and filled that first two pages. This is an excellent activity to be used as: TOD, Quiz, Bell work, Substitute teacher day, Game, etc. It can be used with any Spanish level, but I always start in Spanish 1 with the first Chapter of ANY book.

If you are a Spanish teacher and are teaching the -ING form in Spanish - EL Presente Progresivo, then this is the resource for you. This is a resource that takes a lot of time to prepare. I take the time to do it so YOU, don’t have to spend hours (like I do), preparing resources like this. No matter what book you use, nor the level you are teaching, if you want to assess, review, teach and practice the -ING form in Spanish, then you are in for a treat. This resource contains: A ppt that has 181 slides, including the Cover. It has been coded so that it jumps randomly to different slides. The only downfall is that you may get the same slide more than once. Nevertheless, since there are so man slides to choose from, this may not happen very often. A student answer sheet with 10 questions at a time. An Exit Ticket type of form for quick assessments. Students are given an answer sheet. As they listen to the prompt, they have to choose whether the picture on the slide goes or doesn’t go with the verb they just heard. Then, they need to recognize what Subject Pronoun the conjugation goes with. Finally, they need to recognize if the verb was conjugated in the Present, Presente Progressive or if it is in the infinitive form. I have used all the verbs of Lección 5, from the Descubre 1 book, BUT, I have also recycled verbs from Lección 2, 3 and 4. If you are interested in more resources for the Descubre/Vistas Series and are especially interested in matching Listening Comprehension Exercises, please visit my store: Profe Majo Spanish I am creating more Listening Comprehension Activities that are different in length and level so that teachers can use them as differentiated/tiered activities: For example: single word, phrase or sentence and short paragraphs.

I have one with all 75 questions and answer choices and other shorter answer sheets with fewer questions: 10, 20, 30 and 40.

For example, they need to see if the prompt matches the picture in meaning, grammatical gender and number. If the prompt is “los carpinteros”, and there is only one carpintero, then the prompt may not match the picture completely.
