I have used this as a aural comprehension and physical response drill in 3 steps: 1) students (if words are new) cut out the squares of paper and arrange them on the desk with the words facing up. As I call out each chore, everyone finds the printed word and picks it up, holds it up and shows me, (you can say it again and have students repeat the word, but it's also fine to make this an auditory-response-only drill) Often we will then repeat the drill at a quicker pace. 2) Students arrange squares on desk with image facing up. I read each chore and they lift up and show me the image. The whole series can be repeated at a steady pace. To excel with the activity students will need coaching on what the teacher is looking for: focus to hear each word, find an image and response so that the teacher can see comprehension...and then continued focus on pairing the sound and the image so that students can learn these words quickly. 3) Students sit in pairs and arrange the squares in front of them. I read each chore and whoever grabs it first gets to keep the square for one point. This drill and contest can be repeated many times, and you can have students switch partners for fresh competition.
Follow up with a homework assignment on quehaceres or a matching quiz on the vocabulary (to see how well they learned the word in class)
*PRINTING: This document is formatted to allow for back to back printing with an up/down style printer setting...allowing you to send to that typical printer setting. You need to test print one copy as two sided before mass printing. It will be pretty ineffective and frustrating if the images have the wrong print on the back. If necessary you can print each page separately then place them back to back with side 2 upside down...and then photocopy manually.
