This is an innovative way to teach grammar in any level Spanish classroom. I have found it to be very successful in Spanish classes. Instead of teaching an entire grammar unit, this technique allows students to practice grammar on a daily basis. It can be used as a daily warmup activity that only takes 2-3 minutes.
How does it work?
Students are given a weekly sentence. Each day of the week, they analyze a different part of the sentence. Grammatically, students analyze their assigned sentence on each day as follows:
Monday: Translate the Spanish sentence to English.
Tuesday: Identify the parts of speech in the Spanish sentence.
Wednesday: Identify the parts of the Spanish sentence.
Thursday: Analyze the verb(s) in the sentence.
Friday: Show agreement between different parts of the Spanish sentence.
The best part about this set is that it allows you to choose each week's sentence. If your students are struggling with direct object pronouns, create a sentence with a direct object (pronoun). If your students are struggling with adjective agreement, create a sentence with several adjectives. If your students learned stem-changing verbs last unit and want to review, you know what to do. Students are also required to write the date each day as "Hoy es el ocho de noviembre de 2014." This allows for more reinforcement on this basic skill (reviews days, numbers, and date sentences).
What are you buying?
A class set (30 workbooks) of Daily Spanish Grammar Practice Workbooks. Each student workbook provides a marking guide (how to label parts of speech/part of a sentence, how to analyze verbs, how to show agreement), an overview of the parts of speech, a model week for students to follow, 20 pages to analyze 20 weeks of sentences, and 7 pages for notes.
Are the workbooks customizable?
Yes and no. I am willing to change the cover page to meet your particular class. For example, I can change "trimestre" to "semestre," or add your name to the cover. Small changes can be made within the workbook as well, but nothing major. I will do my best to accommodate any color requests for the cover page, but I cannot make any promises.
Who pays for shipping?
I do - shipping and handling is built into the price of the class set. All sets will be shipped USPS Standard mail within the United States only. All units will be shipped within 5 days of ordering (most likely within 2 days or sooner).
