This unit includes 12 pages + 3 FREE BONUS pages from my Cinco de Mayo Reading
1. Blank Calendar: Students write the days of the week in Spanish on the blank calendar. Then, they will write the numbers for the dates. You can have your students keep this in their notebooks and refer back to it throughout the month to help them keep organized.
2. May Questions (2 pages): Students will answer a variety of different questions about the month of May.
¿Cuántos días hay en el mes de mayo?
¿Cuándo se celebra el Día de Las Madres? Apúntalo en el calendario.
¿Cuándo se celebra el Día de los Caídos? Apúntalo en el calendario.
¿Cuál mes viene antes de mayo?
¿Cuáles personas tienen sus cumpleaños en el mes de mayo?
3. Mingle Activity Level 1: May Find Someone Who….(ir + infinitive)
Students will get out of their chairs and walk around during this mingle activity. They will ask each other the questions indicated in each of the boxes on the worksheet. For example:
Student A: ¿Vas a trabajar en el jardín este fin de semana?
Student B: Sí, voy a trabajar en el jardín.
Student B: No, no voy a trabajar en el jardín.
-When a student finds someone who is going to do that activity, have that person write his or her name in the box.
-The first student with the most signatures wins the game.
4. Mingle Activity Level 2: May Find Someone Who….(Past Tense)
This is the same mingle activity, but at a higher level of difficulty. Now, the student will need to ask and answer the questions in the past tense.
5. Information Gap for May Level 1: (ir + infinitive)
This is a partner activity in which students are trying to fill in the activities for the month of May. Student A and Student B receive a calendar, but their calendars have different information. Students will have to ask and answer questions in Spanish. Questions have been provided for the students in the target language. Students can choose to take turns asking questions or have one person ask all the questions then the other.
Note for the teacher: When making copies, I usually make Student A’s worksheet on one color (i.e. yellow) and Student B’s worksheet on a different color (i.e. blue). This helps so much when passing out the papers.
6. Information Gap for May Level 2: (Past Tense)
7. Mother’s Day Activities: Students will put a check in each box next to the things they would like to do for their mother this year on Mother’s Day. Then, they will write a sentence for each one using the grammatical structure “me gustaría + infinitive”. (It doesn’t necessarily mean they will be able to do these things, but that they would like to do them.)
8. Mother’s Day Word Search Puzzles (Levels 1 and 2)
Level 1: Find the Mother’s Day Vocabulary words.
Level 2: Translate from English to Spanish. Then, find the words in the puzzle.
