This PowerPoint presentation explains the use of Spanish Reflexives and reflexive pronouns. I use this having already taught the following daily routine phrases:
Me lavo los dientes
Use the first slide to elicit the English and pronunciation of the phrases above.
The next slide helps the student to spot that conjugated reflexive verbs have an extra word (the reflexive pronoun).
The next slide shows how you can spot a reflexive verb in the dictionary by it's infinitive ending.
The final slide introduce the first 3 reflexive pronouns using the following expressions:
This slide can also be used for a couple of fun games to reinforce the vocabulary:
If you have a stamper facility on your interactive whiteboard, a fun game is to ask the students to recite the Spanish phrases over and over whilst you gradually cover the words in stampers e.g. smileys or apples making it more and more difficult – simple but fun!
Another easy game is to send one student out of the room. The remaining class chooses a student to give a top secret signal – this could be a sound e.g. a deliberate sneeze or cough, or something visual e.g. an obvious stretch, zipping/unzipping their pencil case etc. The students then repeat the first phrase again and again until they see or hear the signal. The students then repeat the second phrase again and again until they see or hear the signal and so on. The student who has been sent out must then try to figure out who the secret signal giver is!
