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