This set of three activities aids in student acquisition of foods beyond the "pescado," "leche," "jugo," and the like, while still reinforcing those basic terms. Via Powerpoint, students first go through a teacher-directed "app" that allows them to hear several authentic items, along with basic forms of "quisiera" and "gustaría," referencing "arrachera," "lechón," "pepino," "pasilla," and many other vivid and specific terms related to Mexican cuisine. The sounds are associated with, and eventually acquired via, cartoonish illustrations that depict the spoken text.
From there, a second and third activity allow you to assess both all students as well as individuals in a variety of ways. In the process, the kids get input, input, and more input, and will begin experimenting with these terms from their own mouths, themselves.
My six-year-old, who hears nothing but Spanish from me but won't speak it, "assisted" me in the tweaking and enhancement of this file for you. He was talking in the back seat of my car today, saying repeatedly, "Yo quisiera tacos al carbón," I almost wrecked!
