These bilingual dialogues are going to be a big hit with your classes because the students have control to leave the dialogue as written or they can manipulate the context of the conversation by substituting an underlined word for their choice of vocabulary. With each dialogue that is written, the focus is on the function of a theme and is written for a particular skill level without focusing on grammar and syntax.
What is included:
• Two simple dialogues with open-ended responses
• Lesson activity suggestions
• Two cloze activity worksheets
• Activity worksheet instructions
The dialogues are written at a beginning level using short questions and responses with expressions that are mostly reactive in nature but allow the student to feel as if they are in a real conversation using for the most part, Spanish 1 vocabulary. (Novice Level on the Foreign Language proficiency scale). The students also will be exposed to some more advanced expressions but, not so many as to make the dialogue too difficult for this level.
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. 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. Followers will be notified of periodic vocabulary updates.
The "Pet & Farm Animal Mini-Dialogues" interactive worksheets can be used as a stand-alone activity. However, as additional reference tools you may prefer to supplement with my Animals of the World Vocabulary Glossary as this reference was designed to provide a foundation for the majority of common vocabulary that students will encounter throughout the course of any related unit. Maestra Mapache Creations has coordinated these collections of vocabulary, dialogues, worksheets and images to be your versatile tool for both verbal and written activities. Enrich your current curriculum units and put valuable time back in your hands.
