These simple activities can be used for any newcomer to English. They were designed to be used as independent practice while I was unable to teach during our annual language assessment, but they could also be used as guided practice.
The vocabulary list includes translation of all the words in Spanish, and the activities are designed to have the student practice the words and understand the activities independently with that as a reference.
For a student with a home language other than Spanish, use the second list and have the student fill in the translation in their home language and check for understanding with a translator or by using pictures before assigning the activities as independent work. Alternatively, for a student with strong dictionary skills, you can assign translation as part of the activity.
Vocabulary areas include:
- School Places
- Fruits and Vegetables
- Days of the Week
- Basic Verbs (run, walk, read, write, talk, listen, go)
