This file contains a 1 to 2 day lesson plan that introduces students to the structure "me gusta/n __". It includes:
-instructions for introducing the structures to students
-a three-level embedded reading that targets the structures 'me gusta/n__' and 'le gusta/n __", provided as a 24 page slideshow and a 24 page mini-booklet.
-instructions for reading and discussing the embedded reading
-instructions for a communicative game to practice the structures
-name cards with scripts (designed to be printed 2-sided) for students to use during the activity
-a list of common words and cognates for each letter of the alphabet to aid in preparation for the activity
-a suggestion for a follow-up activity
The communicative activity in the file can be used to practice...
-Introducing yourself and others (llamarse)
-The verb 'gustar'
-The verb 'empieza' (begins)
-Using a Spanish-English dictionary
-Or simply to learn names!!
I recommend teaching this lesson plan after the four-day unit "Dice" http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Storytelling-Unit-Dice-4-days-Spanish-I-843365 or playing the game with any new group of students, regardless of the level of Spanish.
