Note from Maestra Mapache: My classroom activities were primarily student directed and textbook vocabulary lists did not have a sufficient quantity or variety of terms that my students and I wanted in order to build and expand ideas. Too often, the activities were for rote memory exercises but, not sufficient for expanding into daily use. For this reason I developed my own glossaries and selected appropriate grammar based on learner level using the textbook as a support tool. Students were free to add and select the vocabulary that was more applicable to their own life had meaning beyond the textbook exercise.
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.
This vocabulary sheet may be purchased individually and coordinates with my thematic bundled products; Maestra Mapache's Food Powerpoint Images as well as Meal and Restaurant Dialogues and Worksheets (links will be available soon).
