This is a small, half-sheet activity that can be done a number of ways. It includes a mini-set of notes, 5 questions for small writing practice, and a classroom survey for speaking practice. This is best used when students are learning dates and birthdays in Spanish.
1) Have the students fill out the "notes" portion the best that they can with prior knowledge.
2) Go over the notes together.
3) Have the students answer the questions at the bottom the best that they can (you can do this together and/or individually).
4) Go over the answers together
5) Have the students do the "entrevista" on the back. Students will walk around and ask each other questions in Spanish.
6) As a class, go over their answers. It's best if you provide the format for the students to answer these questions on the board and have them just "fill in the blanks". This is a great pre-introduction to describing someone else. (I can say how old someone else is and when his/her birthday is).
