-Places in the Community Project-
This project is a very useful tool to have students work and use the vocabulary of different places of the community in conjunction with prepositions.
1. Students begin by completing a places of the community vocabulary worksheet "La Comunidad". The Power point is a visual tool to look at the pictures and fill the vocabulary. You can also print the slides and put them in the board using magnetic pieces. Students can use a combination of dictionary and slides to complete the vocabulary worksheet. Once the vocabulary worksheet is completed they proceed to draw the different parts of school or cut the pictures provided in the summary sheet
2.Ask students to create a map of their city "Mi Ciudad". They become engineers designing their own city. They can lay all the pieces in whatever order they decide. Provide construction paper to create the map. They need to have each location labeled in Spanish.
3. Go over prepositions with the class. Students can use the pictures to fill the vocabulary. Review prepositions with the class.
4. Provide samples in the board of sentences using prepositions. For example " El correo esta en frente de la biblioteca"
5. Ask students to look at their maps and fill out "Mi Mapa de la Ciudad" worksheet
Assessment: Students can be examined on both the basic parts of the school vocabulary and prepositions vocabulary.
