This scaffolded prep sheet allows students to prepare oral topics ahead of time so they can better prepare responses.
The idea behind this sheet is very simple: provide the students with a question and ask them to fill out one to five talking points they wish to bring up in their oral presentation.
For example, I use this prompt sheet for "bigger questions", the example given on my worksheet is QUIÉN SOY YO (Who am I?). This allows students to describe themselves physically, talk about their families, talk about their likes and dislikes, but leaves it completely open ended so students can really make their response THEIR OWN.
For each talking point you ask your students to complete on the topic, I provide spots for two "types" of responses, first for a basic response to the question, and then provide additional information (1-3 sentences) expanding on their first statement. For example, the student could answer YO SOY UN HERMANO and then additionally explain TENGO DOS HERMANOS MENORES QUE SE LLAMAN MIGUEL Y GABE.
The beauty of this sheet is that it's simple to rearrange, have students focus on different pieces of responding orally, and allows you complete flexibility to use this as a tool to address student grammar issues and to identify from their written work, what they need to adjust in sentence structure, vocab, verb conjugation, etc.
