99 ESSENTIAL WORDS AND PHRASES FOR BEGINNING SPANISH LEARNERS!
This set of games and activities really do help students to develop and embed their beginning SPANISH vocabulary in a cooperative, communicative and interactive way. They’re ideal for independent learning, and perfect for pair and small-group work. Students can quiz/test themselves and each other on a regular basis - they're a very popular alternative to more traditional vocabulary 'drilling tasks', and really do help to create a lively language learning environment.
This set features 99 BEGINNING WORDS AND PHRASES that students are likely to meet in the INTRODUCTORY stages of their SPANISH learning:
- Los saludos (1)
- Los días de la semana
- Los meses y las estaciones del año
- Los números 0-20
- Mi familia
- Palabras frecuentes (1)
- Frases útiles para la clase (1)
- Preguntas y respuestas (1)
I've described the resource as suitable for Grades 3-8, but it does depend on the age at which your students begin SPANISH - the games and activities work well with any appropriate learning group, depending on their starting point.
There are two non-editable files in a zipped format:
FILE 1: SPANISH and ENGLISH game cards, with all the words and phrases to use in a variety of games and activities - I've suggested a range of games and activities that have worked well for me. This file also includes the game card template, which encourages your students to apply their developing knowledge of SPANISH practically and creatively.
FILE 2 - this is an 18-page REFERENCE, RECALL & WRITE booklet, best photocopied double-sided, and double-stapled down the left-hand side. This format is very learner-friendly, and easily kept in a learning file or folder for regular reference.
All the words and phrases are listed SPANISH-ENGLISH in language categories.
There are 3 differentiated RECALL & WRITE activities to help your students really practice and review the vocabulary:
CHILLOUT CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in ENGLISH from a SPANISH prompt - all the words/phrases are in their language category
CHAMPION CHALLENGE: students write from memory all the words and phrases in SPANISH from an ENGLISH prompt - again, all the words and phrases are in their language category
SUPERCHARGED CHALLENGE: all the words and phrases appear in random order, and switch from SPANISH to ENGLISH at each question - this really does put students' memories to the test!
