23 vintage-look animal posters: Comprehensible Input with captions in Spanish for practice or a lesson on adjective agreement, the verb gustar, and new vocabulary for animals, descriptive adjectives, and verbs.
Each poster has an eye-catching black and white image of an animal, a large title of the Spanish word for the animal, and a sentence that demonstrates correct usage of descriptive adjectives which agree with the noun in gender and number (examples of ms, fs, mpl, fpl all included). Also, the structure "le gusta" or "les gusta" is modeled.
How to use this resource:
Use your imagination! You know your students best! But here are some ideas:
*Project the posters one by one and ask students to look for patterns to introduce or reinforce a grammar lesson (adjective agreement, le gusta vs. les gusta). Then, ask questions and have them practice.
*Print the posters and have students do a “gallery walk” with a specific objective (ie. Look for patterns, take notes, match vocabulary).
*Print multiple sheets per page and give to groups to attempt to translate based on their prior knowledge of animals.
*Use as a starter for introducing descriptive adjectives and/or describing family members—students use these as models for writing similar sentences describing their families with known vocabulary.
Posters are printable and could be used as a cute bulletin board, too!
These posters engage students with Spanish language and comprehensible input for describing others within a context that they are naturally drawn to.
Adjectives (23 different words)
Verbs (23 different words, most of which are applicable to humans' free-time or daily routine activities, but some animal-specific... a few reflexives for your higher levels or just for exposure).
I would consider this a perfect level of expanded vocabulary for those with some previous Spanish background, as it goes beyond "dog, cat, bird, cow," (but those are included, too!). I specifically included the vocabulary that my students most request (that don't show up in textbooks!) - - ciervo, cazar, pescar, - - as well as some of the verbs and adjectives that I most wanted to reinforce.
