This bilingual thematic vocabulary list has over 125 Spanish words and their English definitions; all related to conversations that you will have about animals of the world. You will find that this glossary can be used at any grade level and will be an essential tool for any of your conversations about pets, favorite animals, regional animals or environmental conservation. These pages provide you with the ultimate word bank that your students will reference over and over again.
You are are receiving an animal glossary which is formatted into 11 animal categories of 3 columns each. Each animal is indicated with the use of an indefinite article. You are also receiving an instruction sheet, a fill in worksheet that includes definite and indefinite article writing practice and a beautiful collage of animals for your document camera or smart board.
This thematic reference of animals is adaptable to meet your needs and you the teacher, can designate the category or quantity of words that may be needed for the unit. Students will be inspired to learn and internalize words and expressions that are important to them in their discussions.
Textbook vocabulary lists do not have a sufficient quantity or variety of terms that I or my students wanted in order to build and expand ideas. Too often, the activities were for rote memory exercises but, not sufficient for expanding into daily use. For this reason I developed my own glossaries and let the students choose the vocabulary that had meaning beyond the textbook exercise.
Every effort has been made to ensure that all vocabulary is common usage however since language evolves rapidly, please share your feedback and suggestions for newer expressions.
As always, Maestra Mapache has first created these activities and used in her own classroom. Secondly these activities are designed to be adaptable to any of your lesson units.
This vocabulary sheet may be purchased individually and coordinates with my thematic bundled products.
