Product Description
This writing assignment has students use adjectives to describe a loved one who has passed away. Students will also tell the activities the person liked and other basic facts like their birth date, date of death, their name, and relationship to the student.

I created this activity to match what level 1/A and B students using the would know in October/November. It assumes level 1/A students are in chapter 1B/2A and that level B students are in chapter 5B or later.

I have created two pre-writing worksheets that differentiate between students in Level 1/A and those in their second year of Level B. Also included are notes to the teacher and instructions for students, which include some new phrases and vocabulary to use. Students should do a final write up for a writing grade and also share their information, reading it aloud in small or large groups and showing pictures.

***It is a Word document so you can customize it to another Spanish textbook if needed.


Students in Spanish 1 or Spanish A will be able to…
• Describe someone’s personality traits using adjectives
• Talk about someone’s likes and dislikes
• Use a variety of sentence structures as well as connecting and transition words

• Tell dates

Students in the Spanish 1B book through chapter 5B will also be able to…
• Describe someone’s physical characteristics such as hair and height
• Tell someone’s age
• Tell what family members and pets someone had


A rubric is provided and you can modify it to fit your needs.
