PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Feel free to share this file with your colleagues or post it to your class website for your students to enjoy!

---What kind of PowerPoint is this?---
This is a PowerPoint presentation in an on-line format that virtually any computer or smartphone can view through a browser. You are downloading an .HTML file that automatically downloads the most recent version of the presentation, so you must be connected to the internet.

---Smartphone-friendly!---
If you're viewing the presentation on a smartphone, the first thing you should do is switch from desktop view to mobile view with the orange button in the upper right-hand corner.

---Slide-show view---
On Mac and PC, you can make the presentation full screen (to project as a slide show) by pressing the letter "F".

---Suggestions---
- A presentation given to the entire class by you
- An excellent assignment for students to do on their own as homework
- A great partner activity for class
- A no-prep last-minute substitute lesson plan! Students can take turns presenting to the class as a projected slide show, or students can work in groups of 2 or 3 in a computer lab, with laptops, iPads and most smartphones!


*USE ONLY THE PARTS OF THE PRESENTATION THAT SUIT YOU*
This PowerPoint is divided into various sections. There is a table of contents and a quick-jump menu so you can easily pick and choose the parts that suit your needs. For example, one slide is a great quick review of vocabulary, while another is a great quick review of a grammar point.


*DESCRIPTION*
This file is actually 3 presentations in one! Find exactly what you need using the table of contents in the lower left-hand corner.

This is a really fun way to introduce and review colors, as well as introduce or review adjective agreement. You'll even work in some numbers and letters, too!

1) The first part (slide #1) ntroduces the basic colors of Spanish in the masculine singular form... the word appears up so the students can say it, then it fills with the color ("rojo" fills with red, "gris" fills with gray, etc.).

The fun really starts when the words show up filled with the *wrong* color (the word "rojo" is filled green, then yellow, then eventually red). Students love to respond respond saying, "está mal", "no está bien", "no es correcto", "¡eso no es rojo, es verde!"

2) The second part (slides #2 and #3) show various arrays of numbers filled with different colors, and the students say what color each number is: "el 2 es verde", "el 9 y el 3 son grises". This gently leads students from singular adjectives to plural adjectives.

At the end of slide #3, the numbers 0 through 9 switch one by one to the letters A through J. As the number changes to a letter, the color may have to change ("El cero es rojo. La 'A' es roja").

3) The third part (slides #4 through #8) shows an array comprising 2 numbers and 2 letters. They fill with the same color alone or in pairs, and the students have to make a full sentence, correctly switching from masculine to feminine and singular to plural randomly and on the fly.

Love it!
On  November 20, 2012Linguicon Project answered:
Thank you, FFST!

I think many of YOUR materials would be a GREAT complement to this presentation because of your clever (clever!) graphics made up of obvious shapes and clear, bright colors. I've tried a few with my intermediate adult students this week, and although many of your materials look like they are for children, they are fantastic way to layer on conversation. What's especially nice is that your images compelled all the students to think the same thing, such as "His nose is a triangle" or "The feet of the turkey are stars", which means all the students were anticipating what their classmates were going to say, which made for a very pleasant listening comprehension activity and a great confidence-builder.

(And I am sure your materials would even be great conversation-starters for advanced students!)

Fun! Highly recommended!
I agree with srtarebeca, a little confusing at first... I am worse than my students, because I didn't read your instructions until after...

Because my presentations and philosophy often look at Spanish from a different angle, I try to put some comprehensive notes in the description that reconcile it with more traditional notions. ¡Gracias!

This is an excellent powerpoint... I am surprised it has such a low rating!
On  November 18, 2012Linguicon Project answered:
For having been downloaded over 3000 times, I am surprised there are only a handful of reviews... at one point, it was a "2.0"!

:-(

It is creeping up, though, so thanks for taking the time to rate and comment!

Yes, it is a little confusing the first time through... once you get to the end, you should get an idea of how to present that first part to your students.

The only thing I wish was better was that I could actually save this so I can use it with my students!
On  August 12, 2008Linguicon Project answered:
you definitely can save them to any PC, but you have to be connected to the internet to view them. Your computer may have a security setting that prevents PowerPoint from pulling images from the internet, which may or may not be easy for you to remedy!

At first I wasn't sure what to expect but when I kept viewing it I began to really enjoy it and am really excited to teach my students the colors this year! Thanks for the help!
On  August 26, 2007Linguicon Project answered:
¡Mil gracias! I hope your students find it fun, too. I'm thinking about breaking the presentation down into two versions, with five or six colors each to introduce them for the first time. ¿Qué te parece?

I might make a versions with café and pardo instead of marrón so teachers can use a version that matches their book. ¿Es buena idea?

I hope you had time to look at the parts of the body presentations, too. They are a great sponge activity.

¡Que tus estudiantes se diviertan!

Nice job! I love the various ways that the colors are presented--by the end students will be shouting out the correct colors.

¡Muchas gracias! Check out some of the other presentations, too. The presentations with shapes and colors gives the students practice with plural forms, too.
