Use these task cards to help your students practice written accent marks in Spanish!!!
Accent marks are one of those topics that can seem mysterious to our students. While we can explain the rules fairly simply, students need lots of practice identifying stressed syllables, deciding whether the word needs an accent mark, and placing any necessary accent marks in the correct spot before they finally feel comfortable. But coming up with lists of words for them to practice with is time consuming, and it can be hard to brainstorm enough different words to give students sufficient variety to practice with.
Never fear - I've done that work for you! This task card set contains 45 cards with 6 words on each card, for a total of 270 unique words with no repeats!!! This set isolates las palabras esdrújulas, words stressed on the antepenultimate (3rd-to-last) syllable. While students usually figure out pretty quickly that all of these words need accent marks, figuring out where to put them can be trickier. That's where these task cards come in to play! All accent marks have been removed from the words, and students must figure out where they go.
Task cards can be used in so many ways in the classroom! Give these cards to fast finishers to keep them on task and working in the language. Set up stations or play a fun game of Scoot. The possibilities are almost endless!
