GCSE Card Game

GCSE Card Game

(3)
This is a card game I created for my shyest Y11. I simply used one card once a week and it worked miracles. Most of them feared having that blank page feeling and with these cards they were able to focus on a target (which they found quite helpful) and of course they also love a bit of competition. TOPICS INCLUDED: 3.1.1 Theme 1: Identity and culture Topic 1: Me, my family and friends Topic 2: Technology in everyday life Topic 3: Free-time activities Topic 4: Customs and festivals in Spanish-speaking countries/communities 3.1.2 Theme 2: Local, national, international and global areas of interest Topic 1: Home, town, neighbourhood and region Topic 2: Social issues Topic 3: Global issues Topic 4: Travel and tourism 3.1.3 Theme 3: Current and future study and employment Topic 1: My studies Topic 2: Life at school/college Topic 3: Education post-16 Topic 4: Jobs, career choices and ambitions Great for either Speaking or Writing practice and especially for some grammar revision. Although it took me ages to make them my students love them and I hope yours love them too.

A2 Fill in the gaps (36 TEXTS)

(0)
This project is one of my favourite creations. Over the last year, I have been gathering several pieces of news on Spain’s current affairs that were connected to the topics my students have to prepare for their A2 Spanish exam. Once I had read each article I did redact a short text (150 words approx.) in my own words with the most relevant info. The result: 36 colourful texts (one for each subtopic) that can be used in many ways. These gap-fill exercises are primarily used as reading material but the students can also practice their speaking skills by debating each piece of news. Most of them are quite controversial and students tend to have strong opinions about these issues which is great! Furthermore, the exercises can also be sent as homework (if you have students who ask for some extra prep to practice at home these are really convenient). I particularly like how easy these are to set as cover material. The cover teachers can easily identify the task and see what it is to be achieved by the students. You can even ask them to translate specific sentences or paragraphs from the texts. The amount of time it took me to prepare this resource is going to be worth it since it can be used for various purposes. All in all great to review grammar and vocabulary. Files included: • Colourful PowerPoint presentation (Keys included) with an interactive menu • Printable Student’s handout • Printable Teacher’s copy with answers All the topics included (see the menu’s image) are those required for AQA’s Spanish (7692).

A2 Speaking cards

(0)
A simple set of 54 speaking cards on the topics of: ENVIRONMENT •Pollution •Energy •Protecting the planet THE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY •Immigration •Integration •Racism CONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES •Wealth and poverty •Law and order •IT Just print and play! To be honest, I love these cards simply because they are so easy to store (can easily fit into the palm of your hand) and the students can take them with them as either homework or practice. Somehow students are keener to work on a small card rather than the normal A4 format for some reason. I guess it looks like less hard work when it's really the same :) .
