This 81-slide PowerPoint on the Spanish A personal is a complete lesson going from recognition to production which includes an explanation, demonstration, checking for understanding, practice and a competition for closure. Also included are interactive notebook activities, TPR story, test, and digital versions for distance learning.

The PowerPoint begins with the personal "a" in context with photographs that illustrate each sentence and a comparison of sentences with and without the personal a.

The PowerPoint also includes the following:

  • a comparison of the a personal with the preposition "a" and explanation of the difference in meaning.
  • an illustration of the personal a for pets
  • an explanation of a + al= al and the three exceptions shown in context
  • uses of "who" and "whom" to explain the difference between "quién" and "a quién"
  • an activity in which students determine if the sentence is correct or incorrect and why
  • a practice in which students complete the sentence with the "a" personal or nothing and explain why
  • a competition doing the same.

Then the PowerPoint goes into more depth exploring how to ask and answer questions using "¿A quién?", "¿Quién?" and "¿A quién le..? and demonstrating the difference. Students answer questions using the personal "a" and the preposition "a". In the last activity of the PowerPoint, students must provide the questions for the answers given.

The activities are meant to work in conjunction with the PowerPoint, "PowerPoint on the Personal A in Spanish". After teaching the personal "a", these activities provide comprehensible input, practice, and assessment.

Included are:

  • a TPR story with many examples of the personal "a" in which students find and highlight the personal a
  • an activity in which students answer questions in Spanish that begin with, "¿A quién?, ¿Quién?, and ¿A quién le..?" and provide the questions to the answers given
  • a test in which students must insert the personal "a" or "al" where needed and must answer questions which begin with, "¿Quién?, ¿A quién?, and ¿A quién le..?", and fill in a cloze story with the "a" personal where appropriate.
  • Google Slides digital versions for use in Google Classroom, other Google and digital platforms, and distance learning

Also included are instructions on how to use the activities and TPR story. The TPR story is about a girl who invites a man to dinner. The man doesn't show up until really late because something unusual happens to him.
