My students love this drill activity. They like to impersonate the King of Spain, the presidents or famous singers like Shakira, Prince Royce, and Jennifer Lopez. For this activity I use the classroom mascot (a stuffed animal or object, I've named mine 'Chupacabras'). Chupacabras is a puppet, and only the student that holds it is allowed to speak. My students throw the animal back and forth to take turns when they are performing the dialogues.
This is a drill activity using formal, informal and very informal greetings designed for repetition. I've included several versions, and each version has multiple layers, with decreasing scaffolding for students as they work to become more proficient in their Spanish greetings. Three of the fill-in-the-blank versions are interactive, allowing students to check their answers as they go, working from the beginning to the end of the dialogue. I've also bundled printable versions of this activity for use in class with partners. These are able to be used as assessments as well.
Key words: Spanish Greetings and Introduction, Farewell, dialogues, drills, Español,
Saludos y presentaciones.
