As always, Maestra Mapache has first created these activities and used in her own classroom. Secondly these activities are designed to be adaptable to any of your lesson units and the vocabulary has been prepared with terminology to allow the teacher flexibility in lesson preparation. The glossary is designed as a foundation tool for Spanish levels 1 and 2 however, it can be used at any grade level as introductory or review and will be an essential tool for any of your conversations about food.
Every effort has been made to ensure that all vocabulary is common usage however since language evolves rapidly, please share your feedback and suggestions for newer expressions.
This vocabulary reference may be purchased individually to supplement your food unit and textbook however, you may prefer to enrich your current curriculum with my other food related product activities. Maestra Mapache Creations has coordinated these collections of vocabulary, dialogues, worksheets and images to be your versatile tool for both verbal and written activities.
