*Note: I cannot take credit for the name "Onesie-Twosie." My cooperating teacher came up with the name and I have just run with the idea!
Onesie-Twosies are a great way for students to practice speaking Spanish with partners while also making sure they use correct grammar and vocabulary. This particular Onesie-Twosie gives them practice conjugating -er and -ir verbs and using food and drink vocabulary.
Put students in pairs and make sure one partner gets “A” and the other gets “B.” Partner A will go first. They will see an English sentence next to #1. They are to translate the sentence out loud to their partner in Spanish. Partner B will see the answer next to #1 and will listen to make sure their partner gets it correct. If they need to give them any corrections, they can do so. Then Partner B will go to #2 and translate to Spanish. Partner A will check the answer to #2 and give corrections if necessary. They go back and forth, back and forth, hence the name Onsie-Twosie.
-You could require students to write out the translations rather than say them out loud.
-You could make it a game where students keep track of the number of sentences that they get right.
-You could time students to see how far they get.
-If students finish early you can have them switch papers and go again.
-The possibilities are endless!
