Provide your students with an opportunity to research and write about celebrations and events around the Spanish speaking world using a 5-part form letter with sentence starters. This activity incorporates research with an introductory letter-writing format and provides practice of transitional expressions and connectors for better flow and rhythm of written expression (2nd year and above language learner levels, Immersion and Heritage speaker).
What is included:
The writing activity and word bank integrate multiple topics such as Celebrations and Cultural Traditions, Foods, People, Regional Features and Descriptions of the sights and sounds of celebrations and events from a variety of countries. The written activities provide excellent review and practice as well as an end of the unit writing test for student building language proficiency. The activity can be modified for teacher-guided individual, group or whole class activities.
The teacher can modify the format of the letter in order to designate and practice the following skills:
-Adding detail and telling “why”
-Informal or Formal
-Present or Past tense
