Prompt: Students in Spanish 1 will create a Spanish children’s book to give to Hispanic children in your community or abroad (or however you see fit). The book is more of a description of a character and aspects of their life than a book with a plot.
Purpose: The required elements of the book reflect vocabulary and grammar covered in Spanish 1 and are designed to help students review for the semester 2 final exam and showcase their writing abilities.
Learning Targets: Students will…
• use gustar and encantar to tell varying degrees of likes/dislikes
• describe people using ser and appropriate adjective endings
• tell what activities people do using present tense verbs (ar/er/ir)
• describe school schedules and materials used in class
• talk about foods eaten throughout the day
• tell where people go (ir) in the community throughout the week
• tell what sports people play (jugar)
• tell people’s future plans (ir a + infinitive)
• describe family members and their physical characteristics
• compare and describe rooms of a house using size, furniture/electronics, and colors
• tell daily routines, such as chores and using reflexive verbs
• tell what people are doing right now using present progressive tense (estar + -ando/iendo)
This is a Word doc that you can customize to fit the needs of your class. Includes a basic writing rubric (you can set the point values), instructions for students and teacher, and space for them to write each page or their book (rough draft).
