In these confidence building oral activities, thematic cognates are used to build vocabulary, pronunciation and conversational skills. Students take turns describing words that appear in English on their papers while their partners guess the Spanish word from a list of cognates on theirs. First year students may describe the vocabulary in English, while more advanced students may use Spanish.
These activities make great warm-ups, pronunciation practice, conversation starters and "time fillers!" (And the science teacher will be thrilled if you coincide these activities with the vocabulary they are learning in his/her class!)
The Animal Multi-Pack includes 98 vocabulary words organized into six categories: Mammals, Birds and Fish, Marine Animals, Reptiles, Pets, Extinct Animals and Mythological Animals
